Default DeVere 507 for sale

Just noticed on the big Auction Site...DeVere 507 for sale, collection only (Chesham). Only one (low) bid so far. Looks like a bench model, colour head but the owner has done some led lamp conversion. Thought it might be of interest to someone here.

Nothing to do with me btw although I do use a 507 Floorstanding model which although big, is lovely to work with.

Marty, when I click on your link, e-bay tells me it has looked everywhere but that page is missing.

Anyone else getting the same?

Thanks

Mike

Yes that’s the one I’m talking about skellum (both yours and MartyNL’s links seem to work for me)

Marty's link gives me the same as Mike reports. Skellum's link works fine for me.

I do wonder how well the conversion works tho as far as evenness of illumination goes, but worst-case it could be a source of spares.

With only one bidder at the moment, it could be a good buy for someone.

Mind you, 'collection only' items generally get lower prices.

It'll be interesting to see if there is a flurry of bids at the last minute or whether it will go to the only bidder at the moment. Personally, I have 'won' a number of items in the past, being the only bidder, so it is possible.

Like you say Terry, forcing the buyer to collect puts a lot of people off, myself included.

Went for a song, in the end.
Hopefully, it will get lots of love and attention!
