I was trolling the thrift stores for awhile and picked up several pieces of equipment. Among the best were a pair of AR 850 Powered Partners. The woofers need to be re-coned and a tweeter needed replacement, but at $18 they were a great deal. Among the worst was a champagne Yamaha RX-V1 receiver. I liked the look so I bought it for $150. It needed $350 in repairs so I paid it, because otherwise it was useless. They sell used on the internet for $300, so it wasn't such a good deal afterall. Sometimes, you get lucky. I hope the poster ended up with a Rega Apollo, and not a "Reaga Apollo". If so, a great deal!
