RE: FW: At-500

I suppose I didn’t communicate my thoughts clearly. Why should an individual
expect to get the same price as a dealer who offers a 90-day guarantee? No,
that just doesn’t compute. Of course, since you’re a part-time dealer, you
have to favor higher prices because you’re fond of eating too.

Just remember, I still have to also pay for an amp so I’m under pressure to
not spend a cent I don’t have to. I’m not wed to getting an AT-500. I’m not
going to send anyone any money until Bill answers my question. Namely, will
an AT-500 properly switch between antennas even though I only have two?
That’s sorta critical to my preference for the AT-500, and the manual is as
inscrutable as its Japanese authors! 🙂

Well, the lets figure somethin else out, cause I m pretty sure thats
what it will take to get just becasue it has the feature you are after
and many more to boot…….Some old amps are bringin more than they
listed for new as well but the inflation thing more than anything
else…Ill put my thinking cap on and will go to the big boys, see what
they might have for a more simple solution. Gonna have to go another way
I think… CUL Murray
