Posting all my gear for sale. Photos to be added. See my perfect rating and feedback. Have previously sold very expensive gear with 100% positive sales feedback. Gear is like new or mint unless otherwise indicated. Not looking for trades. Will politely disregard low-ball offers. Buyer to pay any PayPal and shipping fees. Will be posting separate ads in coming weeks with more photos/information. This ad is for early birds. Can follow up individually on any item(s) listed, including selling prices (have listed retail and bluebook in this ad), and discounts for multiple component purchases. Serious gear...for serious audiophiles...and serious inquiries only please. Happy to confirm pristine / working condition prior to payment at local Portland dealers (e.g., Echo Audio, Pearl Audio).
