AudiogoN Alternatives - The Master List -

Post by treitz3 » Sat Mar 01, 2014 12:08 pm

Hello fellow Carver members and good afternoon to you. Well, we all know by now that the 'gone has repeatedly been digging their own grave since their "upgrade". The prices have gone up and the number of hits have gone down. Folks around the globe visiting the 'gone have dwindled to a rather consistent 1/2 of what it used to be prior to the upgrade. I think by now that we all know why, so I won't get into all of that.

Below is a master list of all of the active Audiogone alternatives I have collected to date. I didn't include Craigslist or E-Bay because CL is not only IME mostly junk but is also geographically challenged. Also, not much high end gear lists on E-Bay, although we know that it can be a great source for music. What I would like is to start a master list that is gathered from all of our collective knowledge that you ladies and gentlemen would consider an alternative to the 'gone.

At this point, even if it is a "start-up" site trying to get it's feet up off the ground? Please mention it. You never know, that one could end up being the next AudiogoN. Here's what I have so far;

Any new links to AudiogoN alternatives will be added to this post as time marches on. If you have one to add to the list, please specify whether or not there is a fee associated with browsing over the listings. This is not limited to the USA or Canada, any and all world-wide AG alternatives are welcome. Thanks for looking and thank you in advance for any other suggestions you may have to offer.

Tom, thanks for that useful post. I think I'll take my tube sale to one of them if they don't sell on the GoN. I like alternatives.

You're awarded the Kung-Fu medal of merit. Congrats!

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Thanks, Ray. Another thread you may want to check out is this one if you don't have any luck. There are many of the sites listed on this that will *possibly* purchase what you have.

I hope y'all don't mind, but I'm gonna rant for a bit.

I swear it's a fucking conspiracy. I offered to buy the Fosgate Signature Pre, for listed price...POS owner backed out. Next up...the Tubes4hifi PH-16..POS owner backed out. I don't believe it!!! Twice in one day!!!!!! AAARRRGGGG!!!! It was a good tube day though....still this tube phono pre thing is getting under my skin.
