Neat Bumblebee II - Professional Cardioid Directional USB Condenser Microphone
New $19.99 I have a couple of these and they sound great, really professional.

Everything else is used, but these first couple are new.

I just got them and for surge protectors it's my favorite purchase this month. 1 foot long and UL listed. I don't have to give up spots on my battery backup when using a power brick that hogs 3 spaces.
DEWENWILS 10 Pack Short Extension Cord New $18.99

The price on the six packs really brings the price down. Just got them for the connectors, which under heavy use still fit smoothly. Some cheap ones unscrewed on me, these are more confidence inspiring. Compared to a single pair the price is easy to live with.
6 Units - 1 Foot - Canare L-4E6S, Star Quad Balanced Male To Female Microphone Cables New $61.95

Got one of these this week when they went on a small sale to replace an older switching UPS that didn't have network cable protection or USB output.
CyberPower CP1000PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS System, 1000VA/600W $164 new

Hard Shell Storage Case Travel Box for Sennheiser or Beyerdynamic Headphones $6.24 and free shipping if you buy $10+ I get these all the time and they will fit the HD600/650/6xx and also the DT770/880/990 fits in them too. It's a really nice hard case, but I'd order at least two so they ship stacked and don't get crushed (they arrive unzipped, so two really protects them best).

(P)Leather EVA Digital Storage Bag $1.99 and free shipping using the phone app, the web based price is much higher. These are really nice cases. I bought 4 different ones to compare and they're much nicer than the other $1.99 ones, lining is really soft. It's more of a smooth foam outside, no leather is used on these.

Bought both this week and they work great together. The mic needs phantom power in instrument mode, pretty easy setup.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (1st Gen) USB Recording Audio Interface $59.99 used

CAD Audio GXL1800 Large Format Side Address Condenser Microphone $19.98 New

SMSL C200 USB DAC Headphone Amplifier $131

SMSL AO200MKII Digital Power Amplifier $175

Topping DM7 8 CH USB DAC $400

Topping A90 Discrete NFCA Headphone Amplifier $449

Topping PA7 Power Amplifier $300

Topping A70Pro Fully Balanced Headphone Amplifier $449

Topping MX3s $128

Topping E30 II DAC $99

Topping D70 Pro OCTO DAC $450

CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD-R Intelligent LCD UPS w/ AVR $119 factory reconditioned (new battery)

I recognize those photos, assuming that wasn't a scam where the seller is reusing the photos, it's been on and off for sale for many years. If Sennheiser were still able to repair the stators I'd seriously consider buying the headphones without the amp; preferably from the Jan Meier batch as they were the last to be made. They are the best headphones I have ever heard.

If the price was more reasonable like $5,000 I would bid. I was talking to someone on Head-fi and he put in a bid on an Orpheus 5 years ago and actually won, he said he couldn't believe it when it showed up at his house in working condition.

Hi, I'm just curious, how come you buy so much of this stuff? What do you do with it?

Hey,
I have a business and sell $6k a month in audio equipment. I have a blog but the thought of doing reviews is overwhelming as my Google Photos has over 13,000 pictures of audio items I've sold over the years. Maybe if I did it by brand it would be possible, but otherwise too much time. The neat thing is being able to try new stuff as it comes up, and be unbiased since I'm not beholden to any one brand (my permanent daily driver is an SMSL DL200 with a Topping A30 Pro). Got a bunch of IEM multikits yesterday, the ones with the boom microphone are really cool for gamers. The TRN stuff on Aliexpress are good so far, just have to be careful to get the right one. The translated descriptions are spotty at best.

Couple of new ones while I'm here:

Topping DX5 $202

Topping D10s $65

Topping D70 Pro Octo $450

SMSL AO200MKII Digital Power Amplifier $175

I need to say that I find it great that running a business on this, you still invest the time posting deals regularly here, and without even trying to ever promote your business. Kudos!
