On the 1st June, 2010, I started off with $50 and decided to see what I would end up on my audio rack after a year of buying and selling classic audio through online auction sites. While the posts are not in chronological order, they will give some indication of profit made during this time. I have kept a complete record of purchase and sale prices, along with many photos which I will post. All of the equipment that is detailed either for sale or on my audio rack has been purchased from profits made since the original starting date.
Along the way, I have learned much about the popularity of (and disdain for) certain brands. I have taught myself some basic maintenance skills and how to best clean up old hi-fi gear. I have also learned alot about selling in the online world, much of which I will endeavour to share.
So take a stroll through the world of classic hi-fi — Japanese, American and European audio — from the 1970s and 1980s. Watch on as I buy and sell my way through a selection of aesthetic and sonic beauties (and some trash), trying desperately not to become a collector.
