The Heads up thread
« on: April 08, 2011, 08:35:10 AM »
Hi Guys,

It's great to see so many of you sharing bargains that you find while scouring the various classifieds. So instead of creating a thread for each of one them, just plug it here so it's easy for everyone to spot the bargains. I'll also be making this a sticky to further help ;)

Cash Converters N1 City has some scruffy looking Music Fidelity kit for sale .  A CDP2 and a matching moerse big A308 amp i think.  It is the newer shiny brushed aluminium fascia.

TimberCity in Blairgowrie, Randburg: Decent prices, discounts given even without asking, instant cutting, very, very precise. Used them only once so far, the service was perfect.

TimberCity in Blairgowrie, Randburg:

It varies, depending on who you speak to. Some of the guys there are really nice & helpful, some (one really) are not very interested in finding out what you  need.
So if you don't get anywhere - change to a different salesman.

I was impressed by Hendrix. His attitude was brilliant. Even the way he walked was amazing -

Hey guys I am brand new to the forum. Here is a heads-up

Cash Converters Centurion are selling a whole bunch of Polk Audio speakers, floor standers and bookshleves as well as some Harman Kardon home theatre amplifiers and B&O surrounds. Pricing seems to be pretty fair and the condition is good

They also have some Kef speakers on stands but it looks like the previous owner pulled it through his arse... I don't understand how people can stuff up such nice kit

Cheers :-)
