Is this a good Saturday...
« on: August 17, 2012, 01:53:33 PM »
Is this Saturday, Aug 18, 2012, a good day to bring down the Leak amp for everyone's assessment?

Take two on this response.  First was in Spanish.  I recommend the 3rd of November.  That's looking like the date I will next be able to come in.  Still shocked by that find of yours!  If nothing else, bring it in again on that Saturday!  :P

Well, that date is probably fine if I haven't flipped it by then.   I've been giving it a lot of thought and, sadly, I can't keep the unit out with my very special needs son.   The Mullards wouldn't last a week.   Playing it hidden in a case would ruin half the fun for me and possibly shorten it's life span.   

I still may keep it stored until the day he goes out on his own, but

A) I don't know for sure that will ever happen

B) If it does, it won't be for years and both the amp and I would have to survive for that long, and

C) I could really use the cash (see A&B).

It is a very challenging decision.   

I took one shot at selling it locally and getting visitation rights, but either the cash cost was too high or the thought of having me come over was! ;D

I can completely understand your said points.  For the price you got it, a flip is always tempting.  Then again, I haven't heard it.  Some things just sound too nice, hidden or not!  ;)  Best of luck with any of your decisions!

Maybe I'm just low maintenance, but I am basically happy with the sound of my Marantz 2230.

This one flip could literally cover a couple years of record purchases.
