Default Estate sale......tons o'stuff..........

A friend of a friend recently passed away, and being the mensch that I am (no laughing!), I have agreed to help them dispose of his stash of audio stuff. This guy may have more stuff than Phred and I combined.

We will probably do a detailed inventory later this week, but here is some of the stuff that I know is there:

CD-80 (2)
CDB-582 (4)
CDB-460, 560, 650 (1 ea.)
CD-880
CD-680
CD-950
Proton amps and tuners
Marantz amps and tuners
Dynaco tuners
Heathkit tuners and tube testers
MSB DAC
Sony SACD/DVD player
Hafler MOSFET matcher/tester (TO-3 socket)

It is probably safe to say that all of the audio gear has been modified. The usual stuff........better op-amps, caps, bypass upgrades, that sort of thing. (Probably close to the type of mods most of the guys here do to their stuff.)


Drivers.........

Lots of drivers. All are new but may not be current production. Typical brands are Focal, Audax, Scan-speak and Eton. Some US made drivers that I did not know. I saw 4" midranges, both Kevlar and paper varieties. 1" soft dome tweeters. 10" carbon fibre woofers. Motorola piezo horns. Some MCM cabinets for 8" 2-way and 10" 3-way. Some have drivers, but who knows if a crossover is inside.

He has Greenlee chassis punches........round.......1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1". Manuals for all sorts of stuff.........a lot of it for Heathkits. Boxes of parts.........I may try to see if they will sell X pounds of it for a few $$.

Anyway..........if any of this sounds interesting to you, e-mail me at this address:

jockohomopa@netscape.net.


Do not use my regular e-mail account! I have trouble accessing it where I am. I have sent this account up solely for the purpose of helping these people. I will use my other one (when and if I can access it) for all my usual nonsense.

Hopefully, I will be able to help them with this before I return to Texas...........which will be in a week or two.

The amp is a 550...............the tuners are a 601T, and 440 (3 of these!)

The DAC is a LINK DAC.

You realise that sending stuff to Canada from the US usually becomes a nightmare. Whatever happened to NAFTA? From Canada.......no problem. To Canada...........oy!

I've done it a few times.

Hi Jocko,

I have received many items from the States when I purchase on E-bay and as long as stuff is sent USPS, UPS or FedEx I have had no problems.

How much for the Link DAC? And the lot of chassis punches?

Feel free to e-mail via the e-mail link.

Thanks

KevinLee

Never send anything across the border UPS. FedEx is big Bucks -- but reliable and quick. USPS might be inconsistent timewise but it gets here and is reasonable.

I have always used the Post Office. The stuff that I send is always small.

The problem always turns out to be the customs man getting his hand in the act.

I have heard that customs can be ridiculous when UPS is involved. Bring money...........and lots of it.

Jocko

customs is always the same
the trick with UPS is to clear your own customs .. otherwise they charge LOTS for their brokerage fees!!!
what you do is call UPS with the tracking number as soon as the item is shipped, and tell them you want to clear the customs yourself ..
then you go down to the warehouse, pick up a couple papers, fill them out (few lines), take it to another building (in winnipeg its a block or two away!), give it to them, they give you a receipt
go back to the ups warehouse and pick up the item .. save on brokerage fees (you still pay the tax and customs if applicable!)

also, use purolator if possible, they're reasonable
