    I suppose it could have been stolen and the thief wanted to ditch it.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars andre hoon says:

    Yes Dave I found a TV and stereo working in the dumpster from a shop that closed down current model that was the so exciting from where I worked

    Im amazed how much stuff ppl throw away. I found my speakers, amplifier amd camcorder in the dumpster in 2013. Fluance XL7F floor speakers, Yamaha RX V520 and Panasonic HDC TM700.

    …. If I had a key for that room I would fill a computer tower up with,
    'Individual canister labeled used couch feet'.
    (but then I am a bit of a cunny funt).

    Check Mike the Scavenger channel, this guy finds insane stuff in dumpsters, including fine electronics, as an example one day he picked up a few pallets of brand new, unboxed RJ-45 wall mount sockets 😓

    In Australia, do they have one type of bin for each type of garbage? 😉

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PelDaddy says:

    As usual, Dave has the best dumpsters.

    Chipboard is PVC veneered, they route the V groove into the big sheet, all the holes, then the sheet is taken and bent to shape. Glue used is a 2 part urethane, used because it expands and fills the gaps to make the cabinet air tight, then wrapped up to make the cabinet. The ends are plain board, also milled out with a CNC machine, as this is both fast, accurate and easy to update for new styles, plus you make the parts to minimise sheet waste.

    PCB scrap used as holder with the writing is because normally the panel scrap is thrown away, somebody likely got a bonus in the design team for this small job, saving Sony 4c on the cost of the unit, by using a part of the PCB panel that they normally would toss out, as it was for a shaped board, and use it to hold the BT board down. 2 extra holes in the NC file, and the changed silkscreen layer, and saved 4c per unit. His bonus, plus photo on the team board, was likely 0.1c of the cost saved for the first year of production….

    SMD capacitors on the board are very likely Sony in house, hopefully they have finally fixed the (in)famous Sony capacitor failure mode, though I have no doubt that in 15 years all of them will leak to some degree or the other, but the Nichicons will still be perfect, even the Samxon one, seeing as it has little stress, aside from voltage keeping it formed.

    It belonged to my teenage kid, I got tired of her rap music.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keiths-Teeth says:

    I though a jukebox was the disc changing thing, like the one used in the top gun movie

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Ro says:

    I'm sure someone put it in the dumpster for themselves to come back later. And you got there first.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PushyPawn says:

    I have to start dumpster diving too..

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian McConkey says:

    Corporations often have to trash equipment due to tax reasons. Thus they can not sell the items, thus they put them in the trash. Sometimes the accountants even require the equipment to be smashed with hammers or equivalent before they are put in the trash. Economic policy is often the strangest part of operating a corporation.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ana Sevi says:

    Straya is a special place, where the tip has treasures and the opshop has nothing but trash.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joey Justin says:

    THIS STUFF HAPPENS. SOMEONE HEARD THROUGH GRAPE VINE HUXLEY WANTED ONE. AND SET IT IN THIER KNOWING YOU WOULD FIND IT FOR HIM

    NO NO. THEY WANTED YOU TO HAVE IT THATS WHY IT WAS THE WAY IT WAS. Near my town an old guy picked the comunity dumpster everyday and got real treasures every day. Cameras video stuff lawn mowers add 4 cases of aged wine. They set it thier for him knowing all this. They had fun he had fun. And I think this is the same. Word travels quick

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M E says:

    My ape brain always goes "Australia must be a place of plentifulness" when I see your dumpster videos …

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars coondogtheman1234 says:

    Such a shame that people just throw this stuff out. Glad you saved it Dave, seems like a nice sound system.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nathaniel Byrne says:

    Huxley is not going to go to bed

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bert Blankenstein says:

    I have a long Phillips screwdriver, maybe just over a foot long. Clearly Dave wins.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marineio says:

    Was half expecting another zap off a cap! 😛

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott haddad says:

    Personally I’ve gotten thousands of dollars worth of stuff just by stopping on the road when I see something too good to be true there on trash day. Someone bought and renovated a house in my neighborhood and when the job was done they discarded all of the tools they purchased for the job.
    I wish I had money to throw away like that. Oh and yes I got those tools and they were top notch brands.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GiveZeroFX says:

    Sony still has great sounding speakers

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GiveZeroFX says:

    I found a perfect Commode SX64 in the dumpster once my best find yet I believe

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DGO says:

    You do realize you are lucky that they didn't follow your advice on leaving it outside the dumpster with a "works" note, cuz then someone else would have taken it instead highly likely… But also.. on the simulation take-away? Why would a simulation be prone to giving you what you crave, that's more in line with divine intelligence 😉

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brad says:

    They bought a new one. My current office pc came from the side of the road. Blew the dust out, securely wiped the drive (previous owners left sensitive data on it) and reloaded windows. Almost comical what people throw away nowadays

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bevis71 says:

    ebay uk just now: 150 quid delivered

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stu sue says:

    Gumtree can be a PITA. ."Will you swap it for a iron that doesn't work and a toast that burns the bread?" "yeah I couldn't make the pick up time we arranged and didn't bother to call but can you hold it for a week mate?"
