    I agree it is a very apt place for such an ad, but if I placed an ad here for some gear I was selling, I would also expect a discussion on the properties, good or bad, of said equipment.

    "Thread crapping" seems to be a favourite term among a certain crowd that don't like their faith to be questioned - a mild form of "if you run out of reasonable arguments, at least try to discredit your opponent somehow".

    Matched the quality of the alleged mods, which basically amount to be crapping on the gear.

    As this is a sales tread .

    Is the original components retained so that the player can be restored to it's original configuration . that would actually increase prospective customers ?

    Tubes is not automatically considered "best" even among card carrying audiophiles .

    Many would actually considered the product "broken" if its to modified . I had a similar problem selling a modified DAC 15 years ago, many second hand byers simply wanted it in it's original form (in hindsight it was not the best idea to modify it ) .

    The transporter is still a classic . it would still be a collectible if it where original .

    I have no use for it in any of my current setups (in the main hifi i use digital in/out and in secondary locations its to big )

    This wasn't an audio discussion, you moron -- it was a "For Sale".

    "Thread crapping" is one of the kinder things I could call it.

    So come up with some reasonable arguments instead of all the name calling?

    Stage 2 of "Audiophile debating 101": "If opponent makes you look stupid, resort to ad hominem and call him/her names".

    Looking forward to Stage 3, "call to ban trolls".

    Ah, insults and profanity. Interesting side step.
