I like the old Altec stuff, though the ratty passive Xovers can go in favor of modern active processing and bi-amping. I'm not usually much into SS receivers, unless it's like a Sansui G-33000 One of the local AK.org members brought one to a BBQ one time, that thing was seriously impressive. 100lbs combined between the receiver and outboard power supply. The pioneer SPEC stuff was pretty cool too.

DAMN, I love those monsters!!!! The 2 sansui amps and 2 receivers I got up untill now didn't even get close. If only I had the money

Guess the closest I got so far are my 2 8080 receivers, and my marantz 2270 but only because it weighs a ton too, and hat's even without the optional wooden enclosure, which I unfortunately don't have....

Spammer bump? ^^

Old school home audio is awesome! I can't afford the new stuff but Goodwill and things given to me are definitely in my price range. The electronics section is the first place I peruse in the thrift stores It's a fun way to do things because I don't "have to go out of my way" to get good, cheap equipment.

I have an "80s style" setup in my bedroom and a "poor mans" in the living room. Well...currently the living room stuff is buried so the Sherwood is residing in the bedroom. Most of the stuff inside the cabinet is far from the 80s though

80s style:
Media rack with glass doors ($8 Goodwill)
Onkyo "Fusion" S-61 speakers. 4 way with 12" sub, 150 "watts" ($40 Goodwill)
Sherwood RA-1145R receiver. 35 watts per front channel. Dad bought it new in 1986.
Pioneer PL-12 belt drive turntable. Parents bought it in the 70s. Installed a new Shure stylus last summer.
(The SoundBridge is currently on ebay)

Living room setup:
dbx 5 1/4" 2-ways (ported). Can't remember the model off hand...but I will probably be making some better and taller speakers so I can ditch the stands.
Rears are cheap RCA 5 1/4" 2-ways.
Used the Sherwood through college...looking for another old school receiver/amp.
RCA 10" ported sub getting 120 watts (RMS)

Not being used but on hand:
BSA EQ...about 13 channels of adjustment on both sides. Dad got this in 86 too.
dbx dual 6 1/2" sub. Matches the dbx speakers.
Magnavox FB-201 6"(?) sub. 60 watts? Made in 97 so it might be old enough lol

Yep...TV is hooked into it and that's a 3.5mm jack for input as well:






Sorry...a little too much focus on the headshell:


My meager vinyl collection. All classic rock of course Need more SRV...

HA! Lovin those Altecs

I have a rareish Scott 299 that is a bastard child between a C and D that was produced in the model change transition, the rebuild was weird because no schematics matched, it's a 299C, 299D, and 229! It's all rebuilt and basically sits unfortunately.









I have an older Technics rig I rescued from a dumpster and got going all minty. Straight line with gain, you apply DC at the front of the preamp you get DC out of the ass end of the amp when coupling is engaged.









I have a JDM kenwood receiver I don't have pics of, got it as a scrapper in PERFECT condition, a professor came back from overseas and the voltage was set for 100V, his wife plugged it in and set it up only to nuke the power supply. Works like a champ now.

The mastering rig contains a crown IC150A and DC300A, and some Urei 809a's



The shop rig has a Mint Phase linear Model 400 and an oldER Onkyo P304 preamp.


LOL and there's the kenwood up above in mid-repair

And keeping with DIY, I also build tube amps (I find it relaxing,) mostly Dynaco variant syle designs (ultralinear switchable to triode) I don't have any pics uploaded but I'm getting ready to start a build of monoblocks, I'll get pics of the donor units for transformers, etc......

My older tape decks...









Not shown are a pair of Harmon Kardon CD491's and a Technics M280

I have a Technics SP25 turntable I ned to build a base for and a SME tonearm. A pair of Technics SL 1210II's and a set of 1200II's that are actually first production II's!

A Shure Phono preamp and a McMartin Preamp as old school pre's.

I also collect and restore antique radios, which I have not done one recently.
