    Worlds largest collection of vintage NIB '70's, '80's audio equipment ?

    Post by Bob Latino on Fri Feb 03, 2012 7:06 am



    There is a place in Ontario, Canada that claims to have "the largest collection of NEW IN BOX vintage audio equipment." I am not completely sure of the history of this place. There is a video above which mentions that the place closed down some years ago because of the health of the owner. The fellow in the video mentions '70's gear but I did see some DVD players, so there is some '80's and '90's audio gear mixed in ... The speakers may be a good buy but in some of that gear the electrolytic caps may have dried up from non use - SO - you would probably be taking a chance on any of the receivers, amps etc. Also - A lot of this stuff appears to be lower end and mid-fi stereo, although he does show some nice Accuphase gear near the end of the video.

    This stuff (5 million dollars of it ...) is slowly being sold off on Ebay at the link below.

    Disclaimer - I do not know this person nor do I have anything to do with the sale of this equipment. Also - I didn't see any tube gear in the video ...

    A lot of mid-fi stuff with a few gems sprinkled around.

    Also some stuff that a very few would really, REALLY want but most of us would find useless (i.e., Pioneer LD-700 Laserdisc Video Disc Player).

    I wonder if the "tour guide" in the video was aware that he had a tag on the back of his hat. lol!
