    needs a wire antenna (I just used speaker wire, worked fine)

    Pretty good condition -- actually almost mint...

    If you have some metal polish, the looks could echo that of B&K gear...

    You guys **** and moan about not being able to find 'deals', and you leave an Adcom tuna / pre at a pawnshop for $50? (assuming its working and clean)

    I bet they'd take $35 for it. EASY Franklin in your pocket on the bay.

    Well 50.00 for a Adcom pre is unheard of around here, you know that unless it is junk but i trust his judgement.

    Man that got there fast, glad you like it bro. If I am ever down that way I will stop in for demo and brew. Enjoy.

    Russ, tried my best to talk her down on it and she would not budge no matter how much I sweet talked. They have another local in another city so I have already made plans to pop in to see what they have sittin around, I will keep you all posted if they have anything of interest.


    Cheers,
