    "Lots" of Dynaco Equipment - Auction in Connecticut

    Guys and gals - this looks like an opportunity to acquire any number of "projects" to carry you through the winter months. Apparently this collector is (was?) a single gentleman who spend his time acquiring and repairing vintage audio equipment, as well as using outside professionals.

    Might be less costly than eBay, especially if one is within reasonable driving distance.

    In any case, Enjoy!

    25 McIntosh MC60’s on the first page.  Me thinks of that eccentric billionaire guy I read about in Brazil who was buying vinyl by the shipping container and had full time staff in a warehouse sorting and cataloging everything.

    Ummm, two thoughts after browsing all the items:

    First, there are no speakers with which to listen to all those beautiful amps

    Second, is there something special about a Motorola CD player that would merit inclusion of 5 of them in a collection like this???

    Crazy entertaining to view, thanks for sharing Peter

    Afterthought:
    This sale might singlehandedly depress prices across the entire vintage audio market.......

    I bet some of that non-cork sniffer gear was dropped into the auction by the auction house. Lots of auction houses own tons of stuff that they"auction" mixed in with real auction items.

    vtshopdog. For speakers check out the second day auction. I think you only looked at the first day.

    Motorola CD players (and changers) use the original Philips drive as used by Revox and other high end makers to this day. And they use a 14 bit type parent of all DAC chipssets - the Philips TDA1540. Again, same as the Revox. So, a poor man's Revox.

    Speakers are in the next auction.

    Hope this helps.

    I have gone so far as to register. There are a few things worth the drive to CT if achieved at a reasonable (bottom-feeder) cost. So, about an 8-hour day including turn-around and if pick-up is available weekends.

    Strategy:

    a) Bid only on those expensive items as would justify a trip.
    b) Bid only on those other items as may be thrown in a box without padding and shipped expensively - and still be worth it and functional at this end.

    I'm surprised there are no reel to reel decks.

    No cassette recorders.
    No DAT recorders
    No linear tone-arms or turntables??!!?? This IS puzzling!
    Very little Euro stuff, other than Thorens
    A surprisingly narrow range of speakers, and no planars

    That is the essence of a good collector - what he wants, as he wants it.

    A few things I did notice, as I have considerable knowledge and in some depth on Zenith TransOceanic radios - he has specific examples of 'last in class'. That is a costly strategy as these things go, so he clearly knew what he was doing.  I am going to wait until Tuesday, 12/11 before making any bids at all, if any at all. No need to excite the opposition. pirat

    The auctions are not going very cheaply. The nice McIntosh amps were out of my price range. The Dyna ST 70s were not to bad ($325-350). The ST 35 went for $175 which I thought was a great price. I already had one or I would have been interested.

    More Dynas to go yet but I doubt that anything will be real cheap. You have to pay for and pick up the equipment within 5 days in Connecticut. So keep that in mind. Some nice turntables and some speakers come up tomorrow.

    The Dyna tube preamps and amps auctions are completed. A few final selling prices. ST35 - $175, MK III $200, PAS 2 $125, PAS 3 $150, Sta 70 $300-350

    Not bad pricing but you had to pick them up in Clinton CT. Hopefully somebody living close got them.
