    I see that someone paid crazy money (over $1600) for an old Nakamichi 1000 cassette deck (discontinued in 1979 or 1980). I hope they knew that Nak hasn't had the repair parts for that transport mechanism since around when I quit working there in 1993.

    I'm a big Zappa fan, but I don't think that the UMRK provenance is worth that kind of money.

    Nak made it to '93? I left in '91 and things were getting pretty bad even then.

    Closing bids: http://www.julienslive.com/view-auct...age=4&cat=1164

    Wow, someone paid $2,500 for a $300 o-scope?

    Must have been full of baby snakes.

    I looked for, but did not find the Kazoo.

    Adding insult to injury, all three cabinets appeared to have the crossovers still inside (see the wiring plus crossover boxes in 2 of the photos) so for a total of around $1800 all told, you would have had 3 4350 cabinets. The grilles were probably somewhere in the house I'll bet.

    That reminds me of the Les Paul auction back in 2012 or so where I got one (1) 4430 in mint condition for $576. There were a pair of 4350's from his studio that were in very good shape, all drivers intact with grilles, and they sold for less than $4500 for the pair - I wish I'd been bold enough to get them. Same for some double horn 3632 Cinema systems that were there (similar to the ones in the Academy theatre), those sold for less than $2000/pair.
