    1k for a Marantz 5020 cassette deck? It it really worth any more than a tenner?

    Surprised that eBay have not rejected the listing as it is an auction but seller says he reserves the right to withdraw the sale as s/he has advertised eleswhere.

    I tried that once and my listing was rejected on the grounds that it is unfair on people bidding. Fair point.

    A BIN price would be ok.

    No surprise the Matisse Pre went for ..... 2350 - exactly the same as the withdrawn bid, so the winner already knew he would be the highest and then put 2350 back in again to win. I went for it but not quite as far as 2350 and didn't fancy over 2 grand for it

    Are these worth bringing back to life?

    I bought a set of the mission (Cyrus) 781s recently and was the first time have heard a old pair of missions, until that moment I didn't think much of them as the post 90 models haven't appealed to me. I was really surprised at how detailed and warm they sound. I've got a few speakers at home and would rate the old missions up there as some quality speakers.
    On a side note a pair of these sold in may for 95 so could be worth it if they only need refoaming. The cabinets are fine and little blemishes and knocks are just a part of their old life lol.

    Hopefully someone who has more experience with mission speakers could offer some advice too

    How can they do that without commitment should no-one outbid them?
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    They get their mate to put in a bid that beats the highest one, that way they know what the top bid is, they then withdraw that high bid, and if not many bids come in they know that their withdrawn bid will still be the highest if they bid that figure themselves. Funnily enough the withdrawn bidder on the Matisse has withdrawn a total of 6 bids, so I don't think it's the first time the winner of it has used this method

    Seen it happen a few times too. It's done to milk the most out the buyer's and tries to outsmart the snipers...

    And I agree Geoff if the your bid wins then you should commit to buy or get off eBay.
