Well let see if I look at the time spent vs. the information given in my post and your messages I believe I owe you a kidney. Although I can't say it will be in great shape. Still better than the liver.

I don't need a kidney at this moment. Any chance we can barter for something else? Maybe like a sleeve of Pro V1x golf balls or something? I think they are worth about the same.

Looks like some equipment racks. Some pro lighting, EQs, etc... This is Pratt AV, right? Did they go under?

Anyway, some good deals are likely to be found this Friday...

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

The listing says that it is just old inventory.

Dibs on one of the overhead projectors!!!!

Those equipment racks could be a good find for someone looking for a good AV rack. I wonder what they have for amps... Could be useful for a second zone.

True, but there is another post selling off most of the office furniture as well, and Pratt has never really had "new inventory"...

Looks like a big St. Louis company bought Pratt last year...

My guess is they're consolidating and re-structuring. Office remodel and/or move, clearing out all the old gear and realigning the Des Moines location better with the overall corporate mission/structure, which looks to be more focused on integration than event production.

I'll be coming to Mr. Beck's grand opening on Saturday. If anyone is looking for a great deal on a sub, I am selling a HSU VTF3-MK3 for $400. Condition is a 9/10. If interested let me know via PM.

I'm trying to decide if this would be a fun sale or a waste of my time . . .
