Title: The Heads up thread
Post by: GearSlave 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 ;)

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.

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 :-)

Thanks to U235 for this tip - discovered that these Primaluna amps were being sold by Vidivox locally and that they were willing to sell them at the minimum price, i.e. at the listed starting bid on Bid or Buy.
I bought the Primaluna Prologue 5 and I can honestly say that it is the biggest bargain - true high end! Sounds simply stunning!

Saw some Paradigm Monitor 7's, I think??? at Cash Converters in Centurion going for R1499.
Cabinets are not in good shape, but some renovation should fix it.

I'm not sure about the model though, but the sticker stated "Monitor 7". Standard 2.5 way 6.5" woofers.

Looked like a nicwe pair though.

R900 !!!!

Does anybody know how good a power amp this is?

It's very good. Not hugely powerful - I think 50wpc into 8ohms, but typically NAD, it is waaaay underrated. Dual mono design, with separate PSUs per channel as well IIRC. Bridgeable as well, should you want to use it to power a sub or some such.
Lots of grunt - will drive difficult speaker loads with ease.

It's a huge bargain. If it wasn't the last few days before pay day, it would've been mine already... ;D

 I went to Cash Crusaders again to check these out properly. Once you remove the grills it looks like a horror movie. I grinds my guts when people butcher beautifull speakers, as this moron that owned these didn't go and replace the tweeters once they were blown. He went and cut new holes next to the blown tweeters and proceeded to install some cheap crappy tweeters so it now looks like some half-cast schoolboy woodwork project gone wrong.

Whatever you do, don't buy these. I am pretty sure you will regret it. Just a warning guys.

With this guys cash requirements looks like he has been burned before, but TBH, it is dangerous to travel with that much cash..
Yup and hopefully potential scammers can see he knows the drill.
Seen a lot of that latley on GumTree,AVSA and Junkmail where the seller states no SMS or EFT etc.

It's not a bad price and it's not a good price... The question is if you need a series 3 SME arm... They are not bad arms at all. In fact the construction is an engineering feat in precision for the masses. The arm is light and needs a high compliance cartridge...

I have had a look at the arm and the nice thing is that it has all it's bits and pieces - that is rare with these arms...

btw. On eBay they quite easily fetch that price and more... Transport from here kills the transaction and the guys who get the good prices generally have 4-5 years of good feedback scores built up...

There seem to be a couple of guys interested in the older Sansui stuff.
Saw this set at a cash crusaders in bonaero park/east rand for R499 if anyone is interested.
The receiver was a CS2000 if I remember correctly,not sure of the TT model number.
I can send larger image file via email if required.
Did not get a chance to listen but the sales guy says they set it up earlier today and all seemed to be working

Nothing wrong with that... I have had 4 turntables, 3 amplifiers (excluding about another 4 that I had and never really used), 2 CD players and 4 sets of speakers in two years...

Those won't be great for a sub since they probably have only 1 wide band in the sub frequency range. Parametric EQ's are better for subs. (I use a Behringer FBQ2496)

My newly acquired B&W sub was part of a set and what are left are 5 B&W satellite speakers.
I spoke to the manager of this Cash Converters (the one next to the Centurion Mall) and he said that he will be happy to sell them individually (if need be) at R750 per speaker.

Not sure if that's a good deal or not but just thought I should share it!
Title: Re: The Heads up thread
Post by: dotVIBE on August 05, 2011, 06:55:59 PM
Yes, that's less than half their new price. Very very nice speakers. Those with that sub would make a seriously sweet mini system. Too bad i'm in the cape.

Looks like I'm finding all the B&W stuff at the moment! I don't know what model these are or whether they are well priced but I saw them today at Cash Converters, The Reds Mall, Centurion at R995 for the pair...

Anybody want to split a set (I would take the NR1402 receiver) ?
Or adjust somehow for you to take my Yammy receiver and the Jamos advertised ?

This is turning into a bloodbath of this and that. To set the books straight; I transferred R600 into his account this morning. He later called saying he was having offers far exceeding this. I civilly said that I shall accept a compensation for my inconvenience/loss of profit of R200. (This was I felt a kind gesture my half). However prior to this conversation I had with him it was already offered at an inflated price to another forum member. (He refused the offer) The situation as current is there is a buyer coming with R1500 cash this evening. As for me; I hope I get my money back.

I think the guy's actions transgress Gumtree's policies. The price you ask should be the price the buyer pays (or less, but not more). And by-the-way, once he'd agreed on conditions of sale and accepted your down payment, he had no business trying to sell your stuff to someone else. I'm sure you could lay a criminal charge.

To hell with that. I just want him to pay me my money. This leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I actually do not want to see the TD125 anymore. I'm an honest person who feels that integrity is being questioned.

Raffs, the seller is definitely in breach of contract. Two issues are pertinent here: (1) a verbal contract is as valid as a written contract in the eyes of the law - the only problems is that the terms of a verbal contract are more difficult to prove; and (2) for a vaild contract to come into existence there has to be an offer (the advert) and an acceptance (your payment). Unfortunately, this is a civil matter which means you would have to settle the dispute in court. LAV's advice is spot on:

I would imagine a verbal contract over the phone would be pretty hard to prove and may not hold any water as you can't prove you actually spoke to the right person.

I'm no legal eagle though so may be wrong.

That is correct. However, you could lead circumstantial evidence to prove that you interacted with the respondent. For example, if you had the person's bank details, etc. that would tend to corroborate your version of the events. Remember, the judicial standard in civil proceedings is a balance of probabilities. This means that the judge/magistrate weighs up the two versions of the events and then decides which one is most probably true.

Glad to hear that at least he honored the deal with u ......wonder what happened after he offered it to me for 1500.....no takers?......still he handled it with little integrity definitely not one of my favourite people  :(

Brackenfell's not too far from me - may be able to swing by.

Quite interested to hear this beast. I remember an uncle having one of these in my childhood (in fact, he still owns this setup), with a Thorens and some Wharfedale kit speakers hooked up to it. It's this very setup that got me hooked on vinyl, and Dark Side Of The Moon, specifically.

It was a magic sounding system - keen to hear if that amp retained it's magic.

They look very neat - one tweeter's dome is dented, but on those that's easy to pop out. Didn't listen to them though, so no idea if everything's working. They're on the floor for R1500, but they're giving 50% of selected stock today.

Looks exactly like these:

I though i'd found an old pair of Mission bookshelfs today in a cash convertors. The labels were missing from the back and the logos from the front. I saw 'Mission' in the plastic around the terminals. The manager chatted to me and said mission were good but he wasn't sure about these so we opened them there. The cones had been changed :( Alas.

I was tempted, thinking they might be rare vintage full rangers.  But they also look like cheap coax drivers that need extra tweeters to sound OK.

Nothing on the web - these could be local SA made boxes for an old music centre.

My very first micro has similar tweeters. The marketing blurb called them "acoustic lens tweeters". Don't know if that helps.

It's a Panasonic. Still working faultlessly after 10 years.

Haven't check out this particular set, but I do know these, and yes, they are off a cheap music centre.

Like the rubbish speakers Pioneer flogged with their Rondo 3000, these are junk. Cheap chipboard cabs, no bracing, a screw-on back panel that rattles and vibrates like it's paid to do so, and rubbish drivers with a single cap to the tweeter as cross-over.

Don't bother.

Those are original drivers btw. I assume they used a woofer with a wizzer cone to try and fill in the mid-range that the cheap tweeter couldn't provide.

An interesting set...

If you like the old-school Japanese sound of the 80's, those CS 629's are just the ticket you. Great sounding speakers, with deep, solid bass, a nice smooth mid-range, and clear tops. Not the best tweeters in the world, so they're not the last word in clarity or imaging, but it's a very nice set to listen to. Very inoffensive, soothing sound quality to them.

I had a set many many moons ago, that currently still belongs to my boet. Sadly, one of the original mids went, and parts are unobtanium, so they had to be replaced by what he could find at the time. They're still good, but that typical 80's Pioneer character has changed.

That's a shame, I found a bit of info on the company but nothing on this particular amp.

Apparently they were bought by Alpine Electronics in the 80's, went downhill. Since 2005 they've been making decent things again but finding any info is not easy.

Luxman (vintage) has some of my favourite aesthetic designs. Love them. I once found a Luxman preamp on Gumtree. When I turned up for the sale the seller declared he had changed his mind. He could not let it go.

All Fisher turntables are rebadged Sanyos, and not the good Sanyos of their Plus series. Fisher never made anything 'professional' nor genuinely for studios*. Maybe R350.


* But don't overlook their valve stuff, nor their very rare top-end loudspeakers.

If it's REALLY only 30 years old, that makes it 1981 - it's going to be a transistor amp, not one of the much-loved valve Dynacos.

These are probably the exact same speakers I auditioned a few months back. They sound very rich and clear.  Except for sibilant-sounding s's, which may have had something to do with the acoustics of the tiny room in which I listened to them, these speakers are something special.

In the 100s of 1000s, both 301 and 401. However, since they were not taken seriously by the HiFi community for the first couple of decades, most of them ended up in landfills, well before they achieved the cult status. Ain't that a shame? :'(

Light Science and Magic is a bit more on the theoretical side - but still with practical examples, -  really important to understand especially if you photograph in instances where u need flash.

I don't think I have spoken so much in one day ever! :)

^--- Could be wrong, but I think that guy had it on gumtree for most of the year.

SME III is a great arm, just keep in mind it's the 'S' model - not as easy to adjust as the 'full spec' III

One of the lightest arms ever made; obviously it prefers high (max!) compliance carts (MM), AND it's better suited to non-idlers.

If you plan to run the MC cart on it, oil 'damper' is essential. Original dampers were supplied with +- 50000cps silicone fluid and 3 types of 'paddle'.
In order to match the stiff suspension of most MC carts, the largest of the paddles would be required and for the stiffest of the MCs, even a more viscous fluid - 75-80000cps.

The design is however faultless. It is much better to dampen the movement of the arm with viscosity than by simply adding weight.
Weight increases inertia, viscosity doesn't.

KEF 105.4 REFERENCE SPEAKERS

Flagship reference speakers from the 1980s, in perfect working condition, all drivers in perfect order, box/wood vaneer needs some attention. Rated 200watts, 8 ohms. KEF’s Reference methodology which matched the response of every system to within 1dB of the design reference. The first KEF Reference loudspeaker was launched in 1973, when the Model 104 ‘swept reviewers, distributors, retailers and customers off their feet’ as the first domestic audio speaker to match the standards of a broadcast monitor in terms of outstanding acoustic precision. The model line is now world-famous and several generations later remains for many the benchmark for high-end audio loudspeakers and is legendary for its clarity and precision.

That one's pretty old and basic, so R2k is way too much. I'd offer him R1k for it - bearing in mind it'll need calibration again and this could be expensive. You can buy a brand new chinese one for around R2500.

You are so wrong in assuming that cable elevators won't make a difference. :o

When I moved my setup from a room with a solid floor to a room with hanging wooden floor, there was a marked difference in sound quality and I suspect that it is because the speaker cables don't get as cold as they used to on the tile floor ;D

Unfortunately if you look through the pets section of Gumtree there are so many people trying to find new homes for their adult pets. Reasons range from downsizing to the 'my boyfriend/girlfriend is allergic'... Finding new homes for adult pets is not easy.

Chrispel's pawn & general shop in Linden has some Revox and Studer stuff, *IF* you like that and don't mind being severely ripped off:

All grey-buttoned first series:
Revox B286 pre-ceiver, Revox B226 CD player, Revox B215 cassette deck, Revox B795 turntable, Piccolo satellites and Power Cube active woofer
All as a set R70k

Studer A727 CD player, Studer A721 Cassette deck, Studer A810 tape recorder, meter-less version (pinch roller missing!)
All as a set R15k

They won't break up the sets to sell individual components. It's good equipment, but I think they are SERIOUSLY over priced, given their age and condition - all will need servicing & spares. 10% of those prices would be realistic. And they've been sitting for about a year already. Nothing verified as working. Certainly the A810 does NOT work.

Would anyone seriously pay that sort of money? It's not like from a private audiophile seller where you know the stuff has been cared for.

They're up for haggling, but I can't imagine you'd get too much down.

Some time ago, I vowed never to enter the "ExecuPawn" in Blackheath again. So far, no withdrawal symptoms... ;)

It's another one of those shops where the proprietor is arrogant to the point that she will let the stuff be completely destroyed by age and endless handling and moving from one shelf to the next, rather than revising the ridiculous price asked for it. Turntables with broken arms (!) because they stacked 5 TTs on top of each other... Guitars completely f00kedup by "customers" handling them like a piece of wood... Horror.

They have an Otari mastering deck on a cart, which has been there for 10 years or more, with a ridiculous price in the tens of thousands.  Today I see it has become the bottom item in roof-high  tower of real junk.

It is SO bizarre - they must get some customers who pay their prices. The have a pair of 6" plastic Philips loudspeakers, at R600 each! I'd rate them at R50 for the pair - maybe R100 if they work & sound spectacular!

It is SO bizarre

I said it before:Sometimes Google is not your friend. They check e bay prices and price accordingly. Problem is there is a helluva difference between a well maintained Studer out of a German or Swiss studio(not to mention those mint Swiss Revox systems) and one in a South African  Pawnshop.You see the same thing on the classifieds here and AVSA too.

 Something is only worth what the market will bear and our market (at least for anything over 5 kg )is not Europe or North America and certainly not Asia and all its intricacies.I once sold an EMT turntable to someone in Taiwan. Great price until he figured the shipping costs and promptly dissappeared.

I saw these, they are in a terrible state, both tweeters dented badly, corners on the stands chipped, and the one speaker has a very deep groove on the back from a fall. I can`t imagine anybody paying 10k for them, they are beyond repair imo. Sad seeing them in such a bad state.

Like the pair of 803's at Centurion CC, they are looking for R40000.
Both tweeters are dented and at the end of the day, I think that they might want to give them away.
They were in perfect condition when I first saw them there last year, but I suppose some people cannot leave those mics on the top alone.  :o

Not necessary true.It is being sold by a female who might have no clue what it is worth.If I died suddenly I still imagine my wife selling my pride and glory el cheapo S.A manufactured integrated amp for R1000.00Mainly because I have never told her the cost of the amp.In certain cases woman who do not show an interest in their husbands hobby or folly have no clue as to equipment cost.However a small safeguard my daughter knows.

Hey guys,
New World Menlyn has a Pioneer A307R going for R1.8k seems like a good buy plus they have some Pioneer bookshelves going for R600. Throw in a good CDP and you have yourself a lekker stereo.

This isn't audio, but seeing as it is a video capable thing I reckon some guys here might want to know about it.

Govan Mani at the Pavilion in Durban are selling the Panasonic GF1 micro 4/3's camera with the 14-45mm kit lens for a paltry R2599. Considering the lens sells for about R1600 on it's own this is a bargain of note. They still have a few left. I got mine. :)

Oh yes, I also saw they are selling the G1 body with the same lens for R2999.

Came across the following at my local CC.
Good deal or not?

2 x B&W ASW600 subs @ R2999 each. Condition looks perfect.
1 x B&W HTM7 centre speaker also in good nick apart from one bump on the leading edge. R2499

All items in that light wood finish.
Cheers

ask for best cash price and they should knock it down a smidge and then the subs should be a good price (maybe ask for bulk price on both)

Just bought a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 10.7 and Diamon 10.1's for R3295 and R1095 respectively. Normal retail is around R7195 and R1995.

This is apparently while stocks last.

Niles speakers pretty low key but not half bad.  These particular ones are pretty easy to drive too (91db) and use to sell for around R6000 a pair a few years back if I remember correctly.  They use to be distributed by Balanced Audio/Yamaha, but have since changed importer.

Saw an interesting pair of 80's speakers at a second hand shop called Centurion Used Furniture in Lyttleton.
Thiel Audio model 03a's at R299 for the pair.
The cabinets were not too bad but the drivers and tweeters were stuffed and the cloth on the speaker grills wasn't in great shape either.
Might be good for a restoration project?

Yeah those two subs are still there plus they have an Onkyo HT system for R3999 with AVR and sattelite speakers + sub in tip-top condition. Perfect starter kit. They also have those Mordaunt Short floorstanders, but take off the grill and you will see the drivers are stuffed. Then they also have a set of Mission bookshelves but at the rediculous price of R1300 and they were the exact same ones that sold on this forum not too long ago for around R900 I think

They also have plenty Yamaha CD players and in ceiling B&W speakers

From the pic it does look like an RX8 (walnut) and if so its a good price provided it is in good spec (I don't see the grills). Those speakers won't be be more than 2-3 years old and retails new for around R13500-15000 a pair. Boomy speakers, that will make a very good stereo pair if you like "bass" :dance:

I phoned probably a year ago. Daughter in JHB answers the phone, doesn't know squat about the TT. I asked for dad's email so I can ask for more photos, she said i should rather phone him and he "will explain everything to me". I said I would prefer detailed photos since we are 1300km away. Apparently, no email, no more photos - she actualy became quite agressive suddenly. Phone down, good luck nutcase...

A nice pair of Vandersteens....

http://capetown-westerncape.gumtree.co.za/c-Electronics-audio-music-equipment-Van-der-Steen-C1-Speakers-per-pair-W0QQAdIdZ383403105

I actually contacted them about them myself, and they are brand new, sealed in box (remarkable considering the photo of them). Maybe a little on the pricey side in my opinion, especially since they are charging R1500 for a pair of stands in addition to the R9k for the speakers, but still, these are hard to find, and not inflated TOO much. To put it into perspective, the brand new 1Ci's cost R14k. I'm just so gutted I didn't have the cash a while ago to get clearance stock of the older 1C's (which I believe this is, but am still awaiting confirmation) at R6500! I guess thats why I feel these are a little pricey?

Cheers

They're about R8200 brand new.  I like to work on 25% or more taken off for anything second-hand.  So I'd expect to pay about R6100 or less if there is original packaging, etc.  Otherwise a good price is round the R5000 mark IMHO

Very nice pair of MX4s at cash converters fourways crossing. Dark oak finish, and sound good, just one has slight damage at the bottom on the veneer from what looks like a scuff that damaged the veneer only. Selling at R1600, which i didnt think was bad at all

I mailed him a few weeks ago to see about it - the price is quite high; and he only posts pics off the www, not of the actual unit he's selling. I'd love it, but if I can't check it personally, I'm too scared to go for it.

Alty/Mr Kassler,

This is the gent who bought the B&O from me (still heavily regretting letting her go  :vsad:). Seems like a nice bloke and all; he tried a swap arrangement - the B&O for the Revox, but I needed the cash (for the nappies and the bloody fine 3020B I took over from you, Kent  ;). Never saw (heard!) the Revox, though...

Were you happy with the price? 
And do you know what transistors went into it for the repair - are they original or substitute? Its so frustrating when things are so far that you can't go and look at them with yuor own eyes.

There was mention of a B750, which I'd much rather have, on here a couple of weeks ago (wessel), but aside from a casual mention that it was possibly available, I haven't managed to get any update from him.

Ah, I'll admit it's all true!
I got another piece (a B790 turntable) last week - the one on the right.
The two together (B795, B790) make such a pretty pair side-by-side!

Also, there's a NAD 3155 integrated amp at Cash Converters in Hypermarket (Brackenfell) selling for R699 - should look fine after a decent clean and some internal dusting. Almost no scratches. Don't know if it's fully functional though...

Just got this in the Shemail from the Vacuustica Anima 54 people (Aural Escape):

"I send you this once-off email because in the past we have discussed your interest in the Vacuustica Anima 54 valve amplifier.

This just to tell you that I have one on special. This particular one has a small dent on the top cover (see attached photo), and thus the discount.

The dent is not really visible normally, I had to play with angles & lightning to get a picture that shows it clearly. (plus if you prefer the cover off, it doesn't matter anyway...)

The price of this (let's call it shop soiled) amp is R7500, and includes normal guarantee etc.

Please see here for the full spec: http://www.auralescape.co.za/index.php/anima-54 ."

Well, in order to assist: Those PA7's go for around R7k each. In fact, I know of two that disappeared at R5k each just this week. That leaves you with and asking price of R9k for the pre-amp. Not trying to be insulting, that's just what these things go for locally

I'm not insulted, you'll also be aware that on gumtree I have already had the privilege of being offered R5k for the pair, I thought starting higher might give better results... I'm very open to sensible offers.

I thought it was related to the actual vendor sending it, but I've successfully ordered something delivered to the same address that I used here, and it allowed it.

Both times the order would be fulfilled by amazon UK.

It may be part of the 'conditions' of the special? Often specials are only offered in the country of origin, and are not applicable to anywhere outside of the dedicated region?

Have a look at the offer, and see if there's a link to terms and conditions anywhere?

Cheers

I was in the Sony shop at Gateway today looking for something to use as a monitor for my Mac. they have some pretty decent specials on at the moment, including a 32" LCD Bravia FHD selling for R3999. There were some other specials on the bigger sets, but I can't recall the prices, except that they seemed very reasonable.

I ended up buying a Samsung 27" FHD LED monitor with HDMI next door for only R3400. Very cool monitor - it even has built in speakers, so if you're looking for a small TV option without a tuner this might fit the bill nicely.

For those who enjoy both vinyl AND Metallica, read on.

Their web site (www.metclub.com) is selling the 45rpm 5LP deluxe edition of Death Magnetic for $43, vs. the normal list price of $99...

The only catch is that their shipping to SA is horrendous ($113), but if you have the option to ship to the US or UK (cost me $26), or to a forwarding service and get it here somehow, it's a great deal.

That is correct, the engineering and foundry business closed a long time ago though.

There's a pair of Quad 9L2 speakers in piano black finish for R2,000 at Cash Crusaders Campus Square (Melville in Jhb). They're in very good condition except that they've stacked the speakers, one on top of the other, and so the top of one of the speakers has some relatively fine scratches. Otherwise they seem to be in great nick  :)

They are owned & designed by IAG group ( China capital owned), all made in China, this UK brand sold to IAG like many others (QUAD , Audiolab, Mission, Castle... etc ) http://www.internationalaudiogroup.com/

These speakers have warm, maybe bit dull sound, but if you drive them with a proper made power amp (ex : 100W Rotel amp) they can really shake your room with rich sounds. Good for music & HT. For R1300 , they are really a bargain , get them if they are all original & 100% functional.  (the new retail price should over R6000)
But make sure you have a powerful amp to drive them or add a 5 channel power amp later, cause they are a bit power hungry. (entry level Japaness AVR will not bring out their best)
BTW, make rear 8.4 standing higher to get better rear effect ( ex : on a 30cm high speaker stand )

Hooked it up last night and it appears to be doing a better job of sound and video than the PS3. Also the DVD upscaling is phenomenal. I could hardly tell the difference between the opening scenes of LoR Fellowship of the Ring which I have on both DVD and BD when I did a side by side comparison.

There where a few comments about the drive being a bit noisy on that other forum - bullshit, it is as quite as the wee tiny gecko I moved from our room to outside this morning...

At work, so I can't access Gumtree at the moment but late last night there was still a vintage Luxman R-1050 amplifier up for grabs (enter a Luxman search on their search-engine).

From what I can see, a very cool, beautiful, retro-looking amp, with VU meters an' all!

I have too many amps already, otherwise it would already be safely inside the boot of my WRX....

Reasonable price too....

I've had both, and this is cheap rubbish. The A-series are weird but very nice, worth about R1.5k. Look inside this thing and you will see Tedelex-quality components. Awful. Nowhere near the Arcams. :puke:

For some stupid reason anything worth buying is in Cape Town  :(
Shipping.... its relatively cheap. at least 1/2 of my kit comes from that side of the world.

Ja-ja I hear you but adding R200 to a R1000 item is harsh and you still run the risk of something breaking along the way.

Life is much easier with simple face to face transactions

I've shipped turntables from CPT to Midrand for around R150. If its packed properly you have no issues. for cheaper items I use SAPO.

Best to go and pickup with cash if you're close enough. His 4 ratings include a few more expensive things so should be fine. I wonder what the reserve is...

Almost certainly a Pioneer PL12 - would expect R200-500 depending on condition, cartridge etc. They're decent enough turntables.

The new ones are MUCH nive and bloody expensive - $1600 for 3.5m - About R14000... That list price for R48000 is nuts, the R22000 too  :nutter:

There are a pair of Wharfedale Opus floorstanders for R4000 at a CC near me. One tweeter is apparently not working.
Title: Re: The Heads up thread
Post by: cj on October 03, 2012, 09:55:21 PM
the opus are awesome, but to get a tweeter for them will be fairly expensive and time consuming (the opus 2 series have matched drivers and they get their own frequency chart for each speaker which means if something goes wrong the factory knows which production run your speakers are from and they take a spare from that run). Im 99% sure you could get a tweeter without all that hoopla of waiting for it from china but it will still cost a fair bit of cash as they replace the full tweeter housing as far as i recall and the tweeters themselves are very nice units (read expensive) :headbanger:

also im not sure how you bugger up a tweeter in that speaker as they go to stupid volume levels without any issue, which would lead me to believe that there was some serious abuse and if any damage occured to the soft dome midrange then its not worth buying as those are very expensive to replace.

Weird...what's the chance of two different sets of Ditton 15's on The Cape Town Tree Of Gum? The one selling at a steal (as if there's a retired driver  :thinking: )...

http://capetown-westerncape.gumtree.co.za/c-Electronics-audio-music-equipment-Celestion-Speakers-W0QQAdIdZ419979843

...and the other set looking for a replacement (retired driver!)...

At the rate that these boomy classics are popping up bloody ol' Leon the neighbour might even have a set in his garage; between the stockpile of cheap poo-paper and stacks of Scope magazines...

I picked up some gear from a guy called Terence in Noordhoek (CT) recently. Swung by his house yesterday and he still has some gear in good nick for sale, mostly turntables:

Technics SL-Q3 with a Shure cart ~ R1000
B&O Beogram 1000 ~ R800
Pioneer PL 240 with its original moving coil cartridge ~ R1000
Technics SP-10 12" arm with Audio Technica cart ~ R5000

He also has a Stanton 500 cart with new stylus for sale at R350

To be honest, I'm not sure how good these asking prices are, but passing it on to the forums. You can give Terence a call on 071 814 3938.

Alty, it looked like it was in decent nick to me. I think it had been used at the SABC at one point (FWIW). At the moment that particular turntable is part of his set up; the others are just waiting to be sold.

Just passed by Cash Convertors in Centurion, and they had a bunch of nice looking Rotel goodies coming in. The guy took my number and will call me with the prices once priced. I saw some 1080 Power amp with the processor (black), a BMB 1075 THX and another (silver) and a DVD and processor (silver, didn't see the models). He had some expensive dream I have to add.

Thanks for that. Haven't listened, they're in a shop near Nelspruit. Not sure how I would get them back if I did get them. The smaller grill is covering some kind of foam.

I saw that deal... Looks like a decent option but I'm not convinced it's something I'd ever use. I've had phones that could play mp3's etc for some time now and I still haven't got around to actually copying anything onto any of them :p For videos etc I sometimes use "skifta" on android to stream to my xbmc box and it can do audio as well. BT might be nice but then if I walk too far or something it would lose connection.

Thanks for that. Haven't listened, they're in a shop near Nelspruit. Not sure how I would get them back if I did get them. The smaller grill is covering some kind of foam.

You can still use the 10.1s as stereo speakers.  Not so with the 10.0's - not suited for much more than as good surrounds

I checked out the Dual HS34 above, seems to have a 1212 turntable which according to Google is not one of their best.

I quote fro a post in Audiokarma "I presently own five Dual turntables. I have never owned a 1212 but looking at a picture of one on an ebay auction, my personal opinion is that it is the cheapest of the cheap. It has a junk tonearm. I wouldn't touch it. If nothing else, at LEAST get a Dual with a silver colored tubular tonearm shaft and a round counterweight that can be adjusted by rotating it."

Picture confirms it has a black tonearm.  Just FYI

Take a look at the room... the placement of the speakers ? Maybe this is just the guy reselling them or this system is a typical show off AV system.

this guy watched movies and although ALL the right components are there for an amazing stereo audiophile system it ended far from it.  :facepalm:

Those Amps and Revels would sound AMAZING in right room and setup, but utterly wasted on watching JUST movies.

bugger, bloody cape town, thinks it time I move.....

I have been to quite a few 'Moving on' sales... There is a 1:100 chance of actually getting in and getting the item(s)... They let people in (to the sale) using a 'lucky draw' system. Before Moving On did the  'lucky draw' system people would Q for hours and then there would be a dangerous stampede once the sale opened...

BTW. It's a great way to empty a house (if you're 'movingon')... After four hours most of everything is paid for and gone... Effective.

Is this R999 for the player AND the BD-set, or R999 each?

Takealot.com has the Star Wars BD box set for R819, shipping included...and that Sony is a really basic entry-level machine. According to the Makro website, the BDP-S190 is R799.

Its for both
So I pay R200 for the box set? Or R180 for the Sony?

Sony FH5.
Best sounding boombox ever - and I have a few... Yes I have a problem. :point:

It uses APM speakers, and they're surprisingly good.  Proper wooden cabinets with proper croos-overs in a 3-way config.
How good the tech translates to bigger drivers I wouldn't know though.

I wonder if this is the same oke in Pta I phone that has 2 sets ? The guy I talked to wanted R20k-R24k  :ROFLMAO:

R20k+ CRAZY

CMon, I bought Tannoy D900's for R22k and there was just now B&W802Ns for R32k. And the Tannoys (now with Mike) was all over the 802's!!

I can IMPORT Tannoy TD10's for R28k, SHIPPING included

A Guy offered me Yamaha NS1000's for R20k  :BWAHAHAH:

Yeah sell me 10 000 year old cowdung (coal) and tell me there is a diamond in there

The old stuff CANNOT compare to the "newer" ones... the 80's are gone...dusted

I was hunting a Kef Reference 4 - the king when B&W had the 3 box 800's. Killer then... when I heard it I listened to the drivers to hear if some are dead or softer...

The TSD Reference studios are another example

You will NOT believe how worried I am that I was maybe "stupid" enough to fix the Magnepan Tympani's ... :facepalm: :Ooooooh: I really pray my experiences with "OLD" stuff doesnt bite me once again

Judging by the way he wrote his ad, it seems he might be a tad  :nutter:

A lot of these guys heard somewhere that a particular make and model of gear of a certain circa might be scarce or highly sought after, they then smell them notes (not referring to the musical ones) and try to "con" you into buying. I've seen many a chancer on Gumtree, even on AVSA's ads...I believe that most of these guys don't have the passion nor knows what its all about.

fairly sure this is the same guy i went & saw about vinyls a while back. runs a salvage operation out of his home in mountain view - he wanted R120 per lp for battered, scratched old south african (& a few other) lps.

Cmon some of the amp guru's... fix these 54kg monsters ? Ok they are class A 80w into 8Ohm multi (6) channel amps....

I managed to find another pair for someone I know at 3200Euro, or 3800 euro INCLUDING shipping... he declined

Could get a TD10 for 3000 euro including shipping etc... no takers

I think for R40k there is nothing to touch it... definitely not a Quad 2905(had), Martin Logan Summit(heard couple of times)  or 802 (have)....

I would swop in an instant... but alas the Tannoy owners I know just laugh me off.....  :nutter:

The phone pic one can still understand, it's the ignorance of most to understand the visceral impact a good picture can have.
When the heading is spelt all wrong that alone should trigger off alarm bells.

Unlike you okes I've researched these. He has the price rightish for a foreign sale, but is maybe confusing his with later Edinburgh HE's. The Edinburgh is a 12 incher though - he obviously doesn't know how to remove the cloths on these things (the hole in the frame is 15 inches).

Brilliant reviews on these speakers, across the board - particularly the picky Japanese. Some rate them above the vintage Red and Silver Tannoys (which they adore)- as good as the Kingdoms which is unusual.

My opinion - too expensive for SA, but I'd love to go around and hear them!

Judging by the pictures it looked like they need some attention... Hard to tell. R4000 IMHO is a bit optimistic. R2000 (average condition) to R3000 (excellent condition) sounds more realistic.

Not that easy to "blanket" state the value on 901s I'm afraid.
Here's why:
All Bose from that period, and 901s even till today, have foam surrounds, which as we know - perish (no matter which brand).
Now, with simple 2-ways like 301s or AR18s etc, it's easily commercially viable to refoam and carry on for next 10-15 years.
901s... not so. 18 drivers to refoam. Cost of replacement surrounds (material) is actually very low, and it is even possible to get the impregnated fabric surrounds which are as good or better than foam and last forever.
If one can refoam them as DIY - great. If you have to pay for it, think again since labour required to refoam a single 3" is almost the same as for the 8", for example.

Finding the pair that has all surrounds intact... near impossible unless we are talking about Series V which is not that old, relatively speaking.
IMHO, functionally and aesthetically spotless pair of 901s is worth a lot more. But that's IMHO - because I like the 901 sound. If one doesn't, why bother at all. As investment, rather buy precious metals/stones. Or Garrard.

The BOSE  901's (Stbosch add) referred to above, belongs to a friend of mine (solid guy) and as we speak they are actually with me. Frikkie is right, they have been refoamed - a sticker says as much (10-94) (I would say a good job done .)......  .  I inspected these for him , they are in pretty good condition for the vintage. All surrounds appear in good nick. Apparently it belonged to someone in the family who was an enthusiast.
I did a frequency response test on one of the pair just for the fun of it (without the equilizer) and it looked near to what I have seen published.
I hope this pair goes to a good home eventually , the owner and I am busy on a new 3 way he is interested in  :)

You can plug the hdmi side into avr but you need to power it with USB. (I haven't had a look if they include another power source but any cellphone charger where you can unplug the micro USB cable and plug in a cable for this should suffice if your avr doesn't have USB)

Yamaha mx1000 power amp. True legend high end monster amp. Dual mono power supplies. Real 260 watts rms/ 8 ohm and 330 watts rms/ 4 ohm. Can drive 3 sets of speakers (8 ohm load) at once. One of the finest amps ever manufactured by Yamaha. Built like a tank to last forever! Plus! Yamaha CX630 preamp with remote. Phono input for MM and MC. Both in good condition, black finish. Please!No time wasters, clowns, scammers and funny sms's!

Having owned the fore runners of these Amps for 14 years prior to a Gearslave being done on me I just wished I could afford them.I owned the M2 power amp fore runner of the MX1000.I must admit I owned the c85 pre which was the earlier edition of the CX830 not CX630.Probably expensive at this price but if times were different I would have purchased them.Nostalgia makes us do strange things.

This puzzles me too. The prices are very good, I have googled his street address, but it seems weird that a Doctor would actually present himself as a doctor in an advert like this. The Technics, which is all that I'm after, is certainly not "Audiophile". It worries me just a little.

Title: Re: The Heads up thread
Post by: Family_Dog on February 23, 2013, 12:38:51 PM
I googled the name, there is a doctor by that name and I phoned the 031-number given on the site. They told me it is his day off today and they were unable to confirm the cell number stated in the ad. Looking at the photos on Gumtree, it is apparent that they do not seem to be taken at the same location - the one with the single Amp is definitely from the web while the photos that appears to be taken at home shows two amps, which he does not state in the ad. There are a few spelling mistakes as well, so sadly guess I am going to have to pass on this one. ;(

Nah...you guys know what, I read his ad first, and I thought something very fishy...then I read you guy's comments and see I am not the only one who thinks so..Perhaps it reminded me of the time I almost got ripped of 2 x computers by a person representing himself as a dr..this is dubious in itself as to why one would want to gain immediate credibility by adding the abbr Dr to your own name. hmmmmm..I must be the stupid one :nutter:

Hi guys,

just ordered this online and the price including shipping was 19GBP. Counting Crows "August and Everything After" on vinyl - only seen it available from guys in SA for around R400 - this works out much cheaper and i have bought from these guys (Universal uvinyl.co.uk) before.

Here's the link to the LP: http://store.universal-music.co.uk/restofworld/invt/0600753366493?__utma=73722070.1188081727.1362993877.1362993877.1362993877.1&__utmb=73722070.1.10.1362993877&__utmc=73722070&__utmx=-&__utmz=73722070.1362993877.1.1.utmcsr=(direct)|utmccn=(direct)|utmcmd=(none)&__utmv=-&__utmk=165592185

The other is on the Pearl Jam website. They are having a sale at the moment and you can get the latest Pearl Jam LP "Backspacer" on vinyl for $10. It's $15 with the shipping. Have also bought vinyl from here before. Arrives in 2 weeks after shipping notification, so far have not paid any duties either.

You have a few options here:

Having bought and sold quite a bit of stuff in the last few months, I have had mostly very good experiences - apart from the obvious scammers, but they go away very quickly when they realise it's not going to work.

I can back ALTY up , had a CT forum member offer me a bit of gear more than 10 days ago , lives near me  , promised to bring it over , after 4-5 cancellations later for all sorts of reasons ,  I have given up and told him not to bother..not sure why one would *offer* an item and then string the buyer along..but whatever..that's CT for you

The difference between dealing with a Vaalie and a Capetonian is so vast it's like the one is a date with Louise Carver munching down on some chicken wings like long lost lovers,so easily it flows..... and the other is like trying to convince Oprah to eat salad.

Thanks for clearing that up, Kent. I'm now really confused. I have only been in Cape Town for a year, what am I? Am I Louise, or Oprah?

Hehe, welcome to selling (and buying) chit in Cape Town  :nutter:

You have a few options here:

  • Hope someone in JHB buys and then be willing to ship... Easy-peasy transaction. Those JHB dudes don't bugger around.
  • Get a CT dude that PM's you twenty times with one liners but won't pick-up the damn phone  :walled:
  • Get the CT dude that does not pitch (or let you know that he wont pitch)  :walled:
  • Take the ridiculous low-ball offer (hehe, that's me. I am that guilty buyer  :EGrin: )
  • Find the 'lonely seller' that just wants to chat on the phone  :faint:
    Changes his mind about selling but keeps you busy for 10 minutes making small talk about chit  :fuse:

I'm gonna print this one out a frame it! The most accurate and concise guide to doing business in the most beautiful city in SA.  :notworthy:

Oh and thanks for the Louise porn too... other lady is just scary...famous, rich, wise but SCARY!
