I LOVE GARAGE SALE SEASON!!!

At the first sale I attended on my first garage sailing trip of 2009 yesterday, I first scored this classic Sansui 771 receiver for $5! It needs restoration but it's worth it!

Then, just seconds later, my heart started beating really fast when I found this gorgeous Dual CS 5000 three-speed turntable! I made a low offer and became nervous as the lady hesitated before asking another seller's opinion. Then she agreed to my offer!!

It's absolutely gorgeous! A real beauty! It still has the original Ortofon mc 200 cartridge which work fine! It's also the only three-speed quartz-controlled belt-drive turntable I've ever seen!

Back in 1992, I was trying to find a new three-speed turntable and the only one left on the market (even if discontinued by then) was this one. It was retailed at $600! The only store who could get it for me (Stereo Plus - they can go f--- themselves) was asking $800! That's $200 over the retailed price! I turned it down and settled for a used Lenco L-75. But now, I got it, and it only cost me $10.00!!

I already have a spare Stanton 681EEE cartridge and needle for it so I can play 78 RPM records with it (I know you can't play them with that Ortofon needle!)

I loooooooooove garage sale season!
