I put my record cleaner on Audiogon today. A Nitty Gritty 1.5, it is a large box with a brush and a vacuum. It was the last piece of lunatic fringe audio equipment I bought before leaving the house. I was thinking I’d like to clear $300 after the ad price, shipping, and money transfer fees, so I asked for $385 plus shipping, knowing what would happen. Within ten minutes the first nibble comes in. Can you make me a deal and ship to Chile? Thirty minutes later, “Would you take $350?” Yeah, I think I can live with $350.
