That was a workhorse AT cart.  Great all around cart.

I've got this Shure Test Record that was designed to make the V-15 look good and everything else not so good.  My AT15SS passes with flying colors.  It was also handy for set up.  Then I got this one, which is tits.  It even has degaussing tracks for the cart.  And break in tracks where you let the cart go for hours till you get it close.

This is big news and a great loss.  But better to go out on top.  Replacement styli are going to disappear fast.  I'm an Audio Technica guy, but the V-15 is a legendary cart and so many others they made.

SHURE STATEMENT REGARDING THE DISCONTINUATION OF PHONO PRODUCTS.

For more than 90 years, Shure has been committed to manufacturing and delivering products of the highest quality, reliability, and value.  This commitment requires consistency in materials, processes, and testing, as well the capacity to react to fluctuations in demand.

In recent years, the ability to maintain our exacting standards in the Phonograph Cartridge product category has been challenged, resulting in cost and delivery impacts that are inconsistent with the Shure brand promise.

In light of these conditions, and after thorough evaluation, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Shure Phono products effective Summer 2018. 

Given our decades-long history of participation in the Phono category, we recognize that this decision may come as a disappointment to our channel partners and end users. 

We are grateful for the support and loyalty demonstrated for Shure Phono products through the years and we are proud of the impact that these products have made on our customers’ lives and the reputation of the Shure brand.  We believe that the proud legacy of Shure Phono is best served by exiting the category rather than continuing production under increasingly challenging circumstances.

Shure will continue to bring reputable, high quality products to market and we look forward to meeting and exceeding customer expectations on our current and future offerings. As Shure expands into new markets and product categories for audiophiles, our enduring commitment to premium performance and technological innovation will remain at our core.

Is it still an estate sale if they just split up?  

 
yeah, good question. I think it was advertised as a garage sale, but going through the whole house, that's an estate sale thing. We've been to a number of professionally-contracted estate sales, way more organized than this was. Still sad.

A few weeks ago we went to the weirdest/saddest 'estate sale' we've ever seen.

Conducted by the real estate agent, everything had to be out by 4, when the 'professionals' showed up to clean out the house. Turns out it was a nasty divorce, and they both just walked away, leaving tons of stuff behind. Somebody found the guy's passport and a new credit card! Gave them to the agent of course.
Apparently she'd taken most of her clothes and such, but the signs were he just split, lock stock and barrel. Toys for the grandkids, linens, toiletries, all the stuff you'd normally take with you. 

We went through the whole house, partly out of curiosity but thought we might find something nice. And the attic, you never know what somebody stashed away. Scored a cheap receiver and a Niles whole-house distribution system, the rest of the audio gear wasn't worth unplugging. An extra remote for the main gate. Cleaning supplies. It was weird, and sad to know how acrimonious it must have been for them to reach that point.

I didn't make it to the estate sale above, this project I'm on is a booger I just can't flick. Oh well, pays the bills.

That's Fisher V2.0 stuff.  Barely worthy of the original name.  Old Fisher is different from this stuff.  Maybe $75 max for the entire lot, if it works.

Yeah, some neat stuff there if it trips any of your triggers.  Sad to see stuff like this and the things that meant so much to the owners mean little to anyone else.  

But, there was a turntable there, so where are the records ?  Those would be most interesting to see.  Classical records are worth zilch, other genres are very collectible.  discogs.com has a mobile app and you could actually look up individual records in the field and get an idea of their worth, if any.

Estate sale this weekend, here is the audio gear:

• Electronics inc. vintage Fisher stereo system – sold as set – Fisher CA-274 integrated stereo equalizer, Fisher FM-271A synthesizer tuner, Fisher CRW-48 cassette deck, Fisher MT-730 linear tracking turntable, Fisher RA-015 component cabinet, pair speakers, manuals, remote; Mitsubishi HS-U120 VCR; Magnavox & RCA TVs et al; three vintage telephones; more.

I don't know much about Fisher, I wonder if it's worth a trip?

I missed out on a Sansui Model 5000 once, didn't get there early enough.

anybody know anything about Fisher gear? Dave?
c.

edit: quick Google says it's nothing special, $10-20 range. Lots of other nice stuff in the sale though, so I might go, maybe I can get it cheap.

re-edit: link to photos, lots of collectibles. See anything you need, let me know!
