Used audio equipment

Hi!

I'm in the market for a used amplifier and turntable. Does anyone have any recommendations on a used audio store that specializes in this kind of equipment? Thanks for any insights!

Re: Used audio equipment

I'm not sure if they're still there but there used to be a store selling second hand electronics of various descriptions. It was (maybe still is?) located close to Hardplatz in Zürich. When you walk from Hardplatz towards town along Hohlstrasse, it is on the left hand side in one of the first buildings.

It looked (looks?) rather univiting at first. Just stuff stacked on top of other stuff on every available bit of shelf and floor space, a lot of it covered in dust. But the guy who worked there seemed knowledgeable and was able to retrieve some items of interest and demonstarte them to me.

Re: Used audio equipment

I’ll have sue extra time I the city this afternoon. Anyone know if this place (above) is still around or if there are any new shops? It would be nice to see and hear some things that have already been cleaned and tested.

This shop is no longer in this location. I don't know whether they have moved or shut down.
