    Welcome!

    So did you win the auction?

    I don't have any personal experience with this model but Ibbys get a lot of love on TB and if this one is in good shape it should serve you well for a long time

    That Ibby should be a good starter for you.

    Good to hear. Those are fine starters - much better than the junk we had back in the day!

    I don't know what era you're referring to by "back in the day", but I started playing in 1974... and you COULDN'T be more right!

    Welcome to TB!

    Also started back in the 70s. I remember looking in mom's Sears catalog and lusting over what I know now was complete garbage.

    I had one of those, also quite a few other Ergodynes, EDA900, EDA905, EDB400, EDB600 and EDC700.
    The Ergodynes I did have though were Luthite, the one you have is wood (that's a good thing though- wood sounds better)

    It is comparable to the SR300 model (the starter model of the SR series) in terms of sound and functionality,actually a little bit better in terms of clarity compared to the SR300.
    Good bass to start off with, welcome to TB.
