    Default Bargains on ebay? (Part 2)

    eBay attracts much flack, a lot of it justified, as being a sellers market. But occasionally it can work out well for the buyer. As an example, someone has found a bargain:

    http://offer.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI...m=260497515023

    I paid about five times the final bid for my Troughline. Doesn’t it make you want to spit?

    Here’s hoping the new owner appreciates his good fortune.

    Regards

    Cornwall near the Devon border. I will message the guy as at that price(ish) it may be worth putting a new 12" driver in the case and putting the HPDs in a Lockwood box

    Ok the chap says that "Yes, the centre tweeters do work. The modification was done many years ago to give that little added zing". He is also selling his amp and pre "Luxman M-120A poweramp, and Luxman C-120A preamp". Hmmm...... Kinda thinking about it all.
