the hand's down best deal for me was my speaker's, my friken eye's allmost poped out of my head when i saw a mint pair of xrt 22's in my state for $2,500.
im pretty sure that the guy who listed them musta been severly hammered while he wrote the ad, i constantly see guy's mispell mcintosh as (macintosh) but this spelling was crazy, he spelled it like maicinatowish.
even if he was a bit tipsy he took great care of his gear, i still check his name to see if something like that pop's up again in his listing's.
right behind that i picked up an extremely clean 3 pc matched set of mcintosh xl1 monitor's & xl1w subwoofer for $290.
there has been alot of other smokin deal's ive leaped on but to this day nothing top's the xrt 22's.
I picked up a pair of Sonus Faber Grand Piano's for $1400 and if that wasn't a good enough deal already I later traded them for a pair of Alon Lotus SE MkIII's and then later traded those for my current JMlabs Micro-Utopias with matching stands! So in the end $6K+ speakers and stands for $1400 with a lot of fun along the way! I love Audiogon! And yes my GF thinks I'm insane.
ATI 2505 Amp for $1200 shipped. 5 x 250W of clean, clear, raw power. A good price for a 7/10 condition used, but it turned out it was a dealer going out of business and they had never even hooked it up because they never had a 20 amp circuit to plug it into. All 110 pounds is still sitting in the box as I build our Custom Quality Theaters showroom. It's the prize cheerleader that you had to wait for a year to take to the prom, but you just know how good it's gonna be when it finally happens.
I picked up a Chang Lightspeed HT 1000 Mk I for $450 shipped, I've had many other great buys, but this is the best 'bargain' I've gotten. I consider all my deals that end in new friendships a bargain. I still regularly speak to many people I've dealt with, and that is priceless to me (at the risk of ripping off a CC commercial..) I have also paid far more than am item was truly worth if it was worth it to me.
Case in point;
I have had a pair of JSE 1.0's with the JSE bases since I was a sophomore in college (1986), well, I ran across a guy here on the Gon selling the 1.8s for $600 with no boxes. I Emailed him anyway, figuring I would likely never want to pay the needed cost of packing and shipping, but was really interested in the speakers Well, turns out the guy lives ~20 miles from me!! We spoke on the phone and agreed that $500 was fair, I went to his house and got to listened to them. I was happy, but told him (after Id already agreed to the price, and paid him FWIW) that I thought the speakers were worth less as they only cost ~$1200 new 20 years ago, but I also told him they were worth every penny to me.
So, I guess what I am saying is that this wasnt the best bargain based upon retail price, but to me was a phenomenal deal! I currently have these speakers with sound fusion vibe buster 8 spikes in my bedroom and love them!!
I hope to continue getting my bargains here for a long time!
Focus Audio FS688's for $1350 with free shipping. Sell for $2990. Weren't even burned in when I got them. Emailed the owner after I received them and he said they were to be part of a 6th system he was putting together. Wife said enough and made him part out 3 of his systems. Said he had maybe 20 hours on the speakers.
