Yea, I have taken note of a few pieces for sale by them that I had to take a double take myself. Enjoy the music

I am proudly banned from purchasing from them after I corrected the owner on a classified ad they posted on Audiogon. They were selling one of the older variations of the Technics SL1200, it may have been a Mark 5 or 6. He stated it is the same turntable as the new SL1200G which goes for 4 grand. When I told The owner he was wrong and why, he gave me a smug remark, something to the effect that “I guess I should have consulted you first before posting. I guess I don’t know as much as you”. This may not be the exact wording, but you get the gist of it. He also banned me at that time.
I have found their prices are very much higher than normal for McIntosh gear. I compared prices between them and Audio Classics on the same exact gear and in every case, AC was less money.
i don’t think folks who frequent this board and have been messing with hi end hifi for 20-30-40 years are their target market
from how they present themselves they are after relative newbies who are just getting into and understanding older hifi, and want some assurance of qc when buying used/’classic’ gear... same younger gen high earner folks who get into air cooled porsches and pay top dollar for cars and service due to lack of experience -- but have a great deal of ’want’ for the older cool stuff
