    I was kind of expecting to see these sort of bargains in the US with so many people out of work and becoming homeless.
    But I see used electronics more overpriced now than I have ever seen in the past.

    Instead of desperate people trying to sell their nonessentials quickly. They are trying to sell their nonessentials for way more than it's worth.

    Mismatched decks, mismatched carts, no covers, 1210 may or may not have had the cable repair/upgrade, unknow basic mixer (clue me in if it's of value?), and furniture I see sometimes from the salvation army or Heart Foundation.

    Kind of looks good, but kind of looks off. Is there some description or was it just one picture?

    Decks not included?



    Found it after a little search, definitely British as I have seen quite a few things like that before except a lot cheaper. That's a 1960's Vintage Quad bit of furniture, the mixer is original and a part of it but the rest is missing. Not that you would want it for DJ purposes anyway.


    I'd be amazed if the mixer was working, but also the amp/speakers part of it, otherwise that's 600 for a DJ stand.



    :edit:

    Apparently one of those sold for £4200 back in 2016, but it was advertised in near perfect, unadulterated condition. Not quite true though as I found a picture, look at the right (left) deck being slanted, most likely missing a foot and that's sacrilegious on a Garrard..

    It's like taking a picture of a car with fancy rims and saying the car is not included.

    If it is 1960s then it pre-dates the first DJ mixer, "Rosie".
    Hence I guess why it doesn't seem to have a cueing system.

    600 quid for an antique doesn't seem too bad in some ways. It certainly cost a fortune new, but it was kitted out with Garrards, Quad amps and some sort of mixer.
    Seeing the price of Technics these days makes me sad. Bargains seem harder to find these days.

    Only downside is that it could have been touched by Jimmy Saville *shudders*
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    600 for a piece of furniture with all the actual goodies gutted out. Dude who did that hack job killed the value of it, it does look good but the price is wrong. Plus at certain angles you would see the huge holes under the decks, not exactly great to have sound feeding back from right under them, is it...

    'Touched by Saville' means burn it. Ew, the things he could have done to it.
