I have a Pioneer 5.1 AV Receiver for sale. One of the speaker clips has broken (see final pic), but I don't think this is a terminal failure, and should hopefully be easily overcome. I've even saved the broken piece of plastic, and the spring that sprung once set free.

 

It's approximately 7 years old, and doesn't have any HDMI inputs or outputs. But it still sounds pretty damned good (especially when paired with my entry level Wharfedale Crystals). 

 


In lieu of money, I'd gladly accept a bottle of Caol Ila, which I recommend you purchase from here, as they generally have the cheapest prices. Other similar Islay single malts also considered.

 

Pickup from West Auckland only.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Fair enough!! Not knowing anything about whiskey, I assume that is VERY expensive.

In whisky terms it's not that expensive (RRP $150; Whisky & More $105). But it is more than my asking price. It's my go-to "special" whisky.

Caol Ila is on sale this week for only $75, which means by default that my asking price has dropped too. Get in quick! :-)

Hope you enjoy your new AV Receiver, @lookout. And thanks for the significant contribution towards a bottle of Caol Ila. :-)
