Estate sale, so a local audiophile/musician who must have passed.

Lives not far from the infamous Stephen Anderson/Mark Uttley. He is a scammer and a flipper who trolls Kijiji with wtb ads so I'd fully expect to see him there. He's fat and wears glasses, probably late 40s early 50's. Claims hes a reputable tech. Lightish brown hair I think. Probably not well groomed.

I wish it wasn't so early, otherwise I'd make the drive hoping to score a gem that needs some tlc.

The prices will end up likely higher than original retail prices.Auctions rarely hold many bargains.

not to mention no chance to demo the gear- buying blindly none of what I see is all the appealing except for the Luxman and Mckintosh

It does indeed look like there is some very interesting stuff there yet over the last few years, i try not to buy anything no matter how good a deal it is unless I have some immediate or not too distant use for it. My penchant for a roomful of projects has waned considerably as of late, but again, thanks for the alert, hopefully someone can find themselves a few nice bargoonz :D

Don't see anywhere in the ad that it's an auction.

Yes, someone got a couple good buys.

The McIntosh, Lux, and Marantz stuff was priced (asking) around $300 each. They were gone when I got there. Just one Perreaux amp that they wanted far too much for.

Kinda sad, Estate Sales - someone's treasures at some point...Hopefully they went to a good home where someone will appreciate the units - otherwise, Kijiji bound they were!
