Two thoughts. Why does everything have a starting price of £10? How much of it will end up on ebay at a later date? Quite a lot I suspect. Several of the lots are for BNIB unused equipment, for example job lots of Sony TCM-939 cassette recorders. Single ones go on ebay for £5-£30, so I suspect these will appear. Why are these brand new and unused? That's our licence fee that purchased those.
There are some great bargains. One place I worked at sold Technics SL-1210 MK2 turntables for about £600. I bought mine on staff discount for 1/2 price. I see they are going for less that £100. Anyway, thanks for the heads-up. I going to keep my eye on a few items and drop some bids in close to the ending. There is some stuff useful for schools in there, such as projectors, CD duplicators and PA systems.
Well found Matt!
Having worked there for 6 months on a placement as a technician (many many years ago) I had to have a bid on one of the studio clocks with "on air" lights. A bit of nostalgia which would look amazing on my office wall!
As cybernerd says - No - it was your taxes :)Quote:

(And like you've not got a bunch of stuff thats never been used at your school???? :) )
Ohhh those are some cracking desks and chairs! And plenty of Tascam stuff too! :D
Some dodgy terms though "bids are legally binding even if the description of the item is 100% bovine poo"
I knew about this because of the contacts I have at the BBC in regards to the world service etc + all the work I've done in the past in various stints at stations.
My 1210 MK2 Turntable......feel really bad for letting it get in this condition - I must clean it !!
Just in case anyone buys a 1210 Mk anything and has a problem with it, not only do I have all the repair schematics, but I have a parts account and I have been on the technics repair course...
I would recomend a stanton 500 mk3, or 505 mk3 (as the 500 is gradually being discontinued) if you are still running the original technics headshell assembly, if you would like to dispense with the original headshell, and the need to align the cartridge, I would suggest an Ortofon Concorde Pro S or DJ S I personally like the concordes as you can get a very high output with only 10g of arm weight. DO NOT under any circumstances buy any Numark cartridge, or a stanton trackmaster, as these require up to 20g of arm weight and are prone to wrecking delicate vinyl.
I buy all of mine from my former employer CPS group on 01202 572000, but they can sometimes be more expensive than online shops, If the price you get from CPS puts you off, I have good service from doth decks.co.uk or djsuperstore.co.uk.
