Hello WBF members and good afternoon to you. Well, we all know by now that the 'gone has repeatedly been digging their own grave since their "upgrade" last year. The prices have gone up and the number of hits have gone down. Folks around the globe visiting the 'gone have dwindled to a rather consistent 1/2 of what it used to be prior to the upgrade. I think by now that we all know why, so I won't get into all of that.
Below is a master list of all of the active Audiogone alternatives I have ran across to date. I didn't include Craigslist or E-Bay because CL is not only IME mostly junk but is also geographically challenged. Also, not much high end gear lists on E-Bay, although we know that it can be a great source for music. What I would like is to start a master list that is gathered from all of our collective knowledge that you ladies and gentlemen would consider an alternative to the 'gone.
At this point, even if it is a "start-up" site trying to get it's feet up off the ground? Please mention it. You never know, that one could end up being the next AudiogoN. Here's what I have so far;
http://www.whatsbestforum.com/forumd...e-Trading-Post - Scroll down to the 4th from the bottom forum.
http://www.hifishark.com/ - Search engine for used gear -Searches 99 sites simultaneously.

Any new links to AudiogoN alternatives will be added to this post as time marches on. If you have one to add to the list, please specify whether or not there is a fee associated with browsing over the listings. This is not limited to the USA or Canada, any and all world-wide AG alternatives are welcome. Thanks for looking and thank you in advance for any other suggestions you may have to offer.
