    Sooner or later a bargain will pop up....the lack of a phono stage will keep the price down for awhile Ima thinkin....

    Screw it
    Been so busy that I haven't even turned on the turntable. I'll probably spring for a decent Phono Pre when I bring in the RL-11 out of the Shack in the next few weeks. I didn't mind spending a few extra dollars for a primo example of the RL-11. I try to buy the best I can afford, to me settling is a waste. I'd end up replacing the substandard units anyway so I just saved till I could get what I wanted. The spread of a good unit to a very nice unit is only about a hundred bucks or so.
    I had the nations problems figured out one night while on blah blah blah........ huh?

    Smoke and mirrors baby!
    $225 each! TWO Acurus RL-11 CL posting, hidden with other equip. I stumbled across this today. Look down to the 6th paragraph. Two RL-11's in Boulder, CO at $225 each. Taking a chance on a CL ad but if you have connections in Boulder, might be a screaming deal. Posted 18 days ago and no mention of a remote control.

    He said he had already had several calls about them. I'd say we are out ! Especially if someone close wants them... so he doesn't have to ship. But.. Sutton told him he could dump both to one address with one payment. Time will tell.

    Yeah, what Kevin said.

    I hope we will get lucky. We've been on the hunt for a couple of these for a long time...

    Always learning!
    Just for he-haws I contacted the guy with the RL-11's and offered to buy for over his pricing (with full intent on turning them over to you guys). Just heard back from him advising they have been sold. I hope you got them!
