    The TC880 is the only Sony reel-to-reel machine that interests me - but at £5K, no!
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Barry, forget the TC880, look for a Sony APR5003 - that's a truly fabulous machine, Sony's only ever professional studio R2R. In some ways better even than a Studer A80.
    R2R: Studer A820 1/2 inch 2 track; Otari MTR-12 1/4 inch 2 track; Sony APR 5003; Sony APR 5002; Studer A807/II. Vinyl: Platine Verdier Allaerts MC1B/Schroeder Model 2 Decca C4E/Hadcock 228 TRON Seven Reference phono. Other analogue source: Nakamichi Dragon with ANT4066 mods. Amplification: TRON Meteor preamp TRON Voyager 20B SET power. Speakers: Avantgarde Duo. Digital: does not compute

    It can also work as a tactic to lure people into making very high "lowball" offers I suppose I mean sometimes those type of auctions have the BIN prices at such a level even an offer of 1/5th of the BIN would still be a high price and someone just might make that kind of offer and even higher and thinking they are getting a bargain if the seller accepts... Also I've seen it happen sellers put up an item with a really high BIN price only to eventually offer it up for auction with no starting price, but funnily enough those auctions often seem to deem really good money for the item in question. Even if people knew the original BIN price was ridiculously high, it seems it still affects their perception of value and makes the item appear "premium" in the minds of some people.

    Maybe off topic but the way people behave in online auctions is very funny sometimes. I watched a TT not get sold with a BIN price of about 500 EUR over a period of like couple months (which was a total bargain for that TT, arm & cart combo btw) and then eventually the seller put it up for auction with a starting price of 1 EUR and got about double his previous BIN price as everyone was trying to "grab a bargain" and ended up in a bidding war...
