TECHNICS RS-1500US BRAND NEW on e-bay
« on: April 02, 2010, 08:57:02 PM »
Hi people,

If you always wanted a TECHNICS RS-1500US brand new, here is your chance.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/BRAND-NEW-Technics-Reel-to-Reel-RS-1500US-RS1500US_W0QQitemZ150422208080QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Electronics_R2?hash=item2305dcbe50

If you do not know how to blow 20k you have a chance now. Still in original package....damn I sold my 1500 and 1520 for AUD550.00 each.

For the upper deal you need might to trade in the wife...I think...hahahahhahaha. Mine will kill me on the spot if I do that.

Maybe someone want it bad......

Cheers,

Eugen

Actually had posted about this machine on General Discussion a while back. The price actually started out at 100K :) Guess they thought they hit the mother lode here.

IIRC The RS1500 went for between $1500 and $1800 US retail. I'm not sure about the difference in price between the 1500/1506/1700/1520.

I had been watching it, the price went from $19K down to $4500, which looked like the magic nbr, since its status is sold today 5/4/2010.

Well according to E-Bay, it sold with a BuyIt now price of $4,449.99 plus $200 for shipping. You could get a brand new Otari 5050 for $5762.00.
