Tons of Tandsberg stereo equipment just dropped on eBay

Heads up, I have no affiliation with this eBay seller what so ever. You have my word on that. 
I just love Tandberg gear and can't afford to pick any of these parts up at the moment. Although I'd part with a kidney for some of this stuff.

This is is just a link to the TIA 3012A they have. Check out their other items for auction, including incredibly rare 4000 series parts. I don't think I've ever seen 4000 Seris equipment for sale anywhere, ever. 
(Auction ends in about 5 hours.)

Sorry for the excitement and go check it out. 

I recently had a 3000 series amplifier. While the bass control was outstanding, I have to agree with one of the contemporary reviewers that the overall amp sounded pretty grainy.

<< sigh >> I wouldn't mind picking up a few of their amps just for the cases though! I think a Hypex stereo pair in a Tandberg case would be sexy as can be. :)
Thanks for the info. I see that the TANDBERG MODEL TCD 3004 CASSETTE DECK is up to $1615 at the moment. Fascinating.

The top of the line player was among the very best! :)

Certainly a good looker!

And of course, the FM tuners were considered among the very best you could buy, ever.
The amp did WONDERS with the Snell A/III - Controlled the speaker like nothing I had ever heard, and turned the entire room into an effortless bellows.

I knew the prices on this equipment were going to blow up, but it is pretty cool to see it on the market so people can experience it. 

I have a TIA 3012A running a pair of Cambridge Audio SX50 bookshelfs. It’s probably a bit overkill for what I’m using it for (mostly quiet jazz and classical), but it works great. At some point I’d love it o pick up some other Tandberg components to build a complete 3000 series system. 

I recently picked up an A/D/S/ Atelier A2 integrated amplifier. For those who aren’t familiar, and I certainly wasn’t, one of Braun’s famous chief designers, Dieter Rams spent some time designing high end, low profile stereo components. These were imported under license by A/D/S/. (An oversimplification I’m sure, but accurate to the best of my knowledge.) The A2 is another piece of a set that I don’t see come up for sale here or eBay with any frequency. It was unique and per some brief research, well regarded for it’s time. As far as how it sounds, I don’t have a lot to compare it to, but subjectivity I think it sounds great in my office through a set of JBL studio bookshelf speakers. (Sources: Ealry 90’s Sony turntable and Spotify over airplay to an airport express) The only things I do have to compare it to are a Sansui 5000x, a Yamaha CA 1010, the Tandberg TIA 3012A and a Marantz NR 1504. Plus I don’t have the infrastructure or space for an a/b comparison a-la new record day. 

All that beings said, I’ve had nothing nothing but good experiences with the TIA 3012a and the Atelier A2.

What has your experience with these parts been?
