Hi end gear stolen on way to California Audio Show - alert

From Brian Ackerman of Aaudio Imports, who asks that this be circulated widely among audio buyers:

"On Friday my truck was broken into in the state of Nevada at the hotel I was staying at on my way to the California Audio Show. All the Ypsilon gear was stolen, Aelius amps, PST100 MKII, DAC100 & CDT100. Along with several Stage III cables, several HB Power Distributors, Acapella platforms and tools. Damage to my truck and a broken back window. I filed a police report and they have a detective on the case.

The retail value was around $250,000 USD.  Also the thieves didn’t get the remote controls for the PST100 preamp or CDT100 CD Player, so whomever tries to purchase these units will probably be looking to purchase the remotes at some point because the units won’t work without them. Then we can turn them over to the police department immediately after getting their information.

I suggest that we spread the word around and we all check the various websites which they might try to sell them.

They didn’t get these items:

- CD Puck for the CDT100
- Remote control for CDT100
- Owner’s manual for CDT100
- Remote control for PST100 MKII
- Owner’s manual for PST100 MKII

The gear was stolen in the city of Sparks Nevada, USA on Friday August 2nd, early morning.

Any information on this matter can be set directly to detective Jason Edmonson (see below).

Here is a complete list of the gear stolen:

1. Ypsilon Aelius Amps,

2. Ypsilon PST100 MKII,

3. Ypsilon DAC100 D/A Converter,

4. Ypsilon CDT100 CD Player,

5. HB Cable Design PowerSlave Marble (x3),

6. HB Cable Design PowerSlave Acrylic,

7. HB Cable Design PowerStar Horizon (x2),

8. Stage III Concepts Kraken Pwr. Cord (x5),

9. HB Cable Design Proton Pwr. Cord,

10. Acapella Fondato Silenzio Isolation Platform (x5),

I would suspect the gear may show up on ebay, craigs list or similar type websites.

Thanks for your support in this matter.

There's an iPhone app for ebay to alert you if an item matching your description becomes available on ebay.
