Nope, done with both systems. At some point I will buy a Dynavecter DV20X low output MC Cartridge. I will buy it from the dealer I bought the Technics TT from and have them set it up. Perhaps toward the end of Summer if and only if I feel safe taking the long drive. Other than that, no. I am very satisfied and don’t have much more disposable income for more gear. Daughter is getting married in November if they allow gatherings of 80 people by then. Otherwise, she will postpone it until Sept 2021. She refuses to do a “virtual wedding” and I don’t blame her a bit.
My father, rest his soul, had a favorite expression often expressed
after hearing similar statements. "Crap in one hand and hope in the other.
Then see which one fills up quicker".
I have sold 6-8 items on USAM over the last 2 years with no issues.
As far as I am concerned it the only way to go.
just bought the Heresy IV's from a local shop..donating a pair of Martin Logan bookshelf speakers and a Yamaha A760 to one of my sons. i'm blessed to be healthy and working, caring for extremely sick covid patients. listening to music is one way i unwind after a stressful shift in icu.
we need to get people back to work.
hoping everyone stays healthy.
btw: playing muddy waters folk singer... oh man does that sound good on these or what!
I've a Marantz SA 8005 CD/SACD player I need to move along, but am unsure if the current situation might be driving prices down, or maybe up since so many people are stuck at home and on the Internet. I don't know whether to use Audiogon, U.S. Audiomart or Ebay for that matter. And since a neighbor recently passed away with Covid-19 I'm leery of using the the local small town Post Office to mail a package out, as I'm sure other infected local residents may have used it. Its a place everyone goes to, some without taking any precautions. So the forlorn CD player sits on a shelf in a storeroom.
I don't think you have to go to the post office to mail a box. Just create an account with USPS on-line, pay, print the label, attach the label with a tape and your mailman will pick it up at your door.
You do have to have working printer with paper and tape.
Most of my last year purchases were on US Audiomart as well. Good experience. I did buy couple couple of cables here, but in one case it was from someone I already had bought in the past, and in another case I first talked to the designer of Wywires cables and then bought from him on Audiogon. Don't sell anything these days.Yes, I think both ebay and Audiogon want too much in fees, it wasn't like that years ago. And overall Audiogon was a better place, more interesting as well.
Selling only when necessary if not able to sell elsewhere.
Buy YES when those Vandersteen Sevens show up for around $15K!!!
My company builds audio components so I don't need DAC, Phono, Pre or power amps any longer.

After all this schitt has calmed down, I will be putting up for sale here on A’gon an all original Dynaco ST70, a Dynaco ST70 mk II, a Nuforce STA200 and perhaps a Parasound A21+.
And if I get really energetic, a pair of Cardas Neutral Reference interconnects and a pair of Meitner interconnects as well as a Morey James power cord, the latter two being relatively unknown.
