Hey, pretty cool Bob! Great turntable setup. Plus I see your Nakamichi Dragon tape deck, and other stuff that put me right back into memorabilia avenue...
Thanks for sharing sir.
Bob,

Thanks for the feedback! I've strived to take good care of my equipment over the years and now as a retiree I don't want nor need to get into upgrades and replacements. Besides what I have really delivers the goods

Simply Awesome! That picture of your living room is a testament of where you really stand on the audio side of things, Bob. It makes me smile with delight, and add a warm touch in my heart too.

Are those Magnepan 20.1 or MG 3.6, or a similar design model #?
And I can't quite make up these mono blocks power amps.

* Very nice Stereo audio setup Bob.

Bob, any multichannel home theater system, with Blu-ray and all that high def stuff? Or SACD?

1967!!? Wow! Two years before Woodstock, and also the year of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" & "Magical Mystery Tour" albums from the Beatles. And all the good stuff from Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Janis Joplin, and many more... Very good year indeed. And almost 43 years ago! Wow! Good memories then. You were musically already an audiophile then, and ahead in your time.

Bob

Thank you kind sir The Maggies are MGIIIa's that I've modified a bit. They're the precursor of the 3.6. And the monoblocks are Odyssey Audio.

Yes I have a HT system in a different room. I'm running a 65" MITS RPTV and Oppo player but its not a Blu-Ray. As for SACD I've never felt the urge given how great my deck and outboard DAC does with redbook CDs. Details of my systems can be found here: My systems description

Thank you Bob sir for the info, and also the link.

* I really love your Stereo setup in your living room.

Regards,
Bob

P.S. Did you ever give SACD a listen? Probably, but I'm asking because you have an Oppo player, from which most of them, you can also play SACDs. Just saying, CDs are so restricted compared to SACD's finer resolution...

Re: What turntable do you still use?

I'm running two:



On the left is a Technics SL-1500 Mk II obtained from a thrift for $20. It was dirty and had no cart. A little TLC transformed it into a great player. On the right is a Technics SP-15 with an AT arm (not the one that normally is found with it). I use the SP-15 mainly for 78 transcription.

Here's , my A/V workshop. The computer monitors and keyboards are on a desk in front of this work table.

Wow! The Reel to Reel is spinning! Cool.

* Excellent deal on that Technics SL-1500 MkII turntable.
And 78 rpm records! You're certainly not a young guy.

Thanks for sharing.
