I have a Yamaha M-60 for sale I dont know how much to ask for this. Does any one want it and/or know how much I should ask for? Everything works like it should I think. It had a small 2 cm crack in the side plastic piece that I glued and you can barely tell. I will post some links to pics in about 30 minutes I think.

Thank you for the help, I thought it was around $200. I dont think I will get that much, even on ebay, if I put it there.

I had some trouble with the camera, pictures looks aweful, but here they are:

I guess three is enough, they're sooo bad But amp looks good. The last pic is of the plastic piece on the side I glued, but it the pic you dont see the little crack I glued with clear two part eypoxy.

$200 is a good starting point. Have seen it going for more on ebay, but also cosmetic condition falls into play as well. I absolutely love the M-series, and wish I had saved my cash for yours. Probably could bump up your price a bit ($250~), and see who bites.

It's on ebay for $150 plus $40 for shipping if any one wants it http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=9704316354

I guess I have little patience. It was on here for a 30 hours, then I put it on ebay

Also what's so great about the M-series, besides the power? And why do you need that much power for your home speakers?

Any one want this again? The high bidder on ebay is not answering me.

Only thing wrong with it, other than the crack mentioned, is that the left pot does not operate as smothly as right pot. But it's not hard to turn or anything, just not as smooth. And it seems to have slightly less sensativity than the right pot. I think this is do to either it being dirty or having corrosion built up inside the pot. Clearly this is an easy fix or cleaning. I might even do it myself, so I can sell this monstrosity. I'm tried of looking at it. It sounds very good though, better than my gainclone I think.

oh no!

now you've got me thinking.....

Need the weekend to think it over. Probably will have to sell something of mine for it...

Just consider me interested, but not ready to buy yet. I think the wife is ready to knock my lights out if I get anything else.

Do you have any tweeters to sell, mine are awful? And/or do you have any good midrange or fullrange woofers?

Nothing really great:

I had built a pair of small bookshelf speakers that use JVC/Watson ribbons for the tweeters (transformerless from what I remember), and MaxPentivent (local maker) 5" mid-woofers.

The ribbons sound sweet (my favourites, of all my speakers), and the mids aren't too shabby. I used them to replace some Bravox 4 1/2 mid-bass (which I liked better, but foam surrounds I think). If I can find the Bravox drivers, I can toss them in.

I'll post a picture very shortly. I could pull the parts out of the enclosure, Or I could just send you the pair as a working set. They sound so~so (BUT superb high end), but most likely need to be put in a new enclosure for optimum performance anyway (tweeters should have been in a sealed box inside the cabinet..., etc...). At least youd get a pair of extra binding posts to use as parts. Cabinets weigh a ton...MDF

I don't value any of this greatly (but do love ribbons... gotta try electrostatis at some point), so almost anything goes.
