Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

My 2 channel system is all vintage gear. I have a Kenwood KD-550 turntable, A Mitsubishi DA-P20 pre-amp, a B+K ST-2140 power amp, a BSR mcd-8050 CD/cassette player and for speakers I just picked up a beautifull pair
of Sansui SP-5000s. Here are some pics.











Onkyo TX-NR809 HT receiver
HPS-4000,SR-70, John Allen, Klipsch Heresy, Speakers for L.C.R.
QSC GX-5 power amp for L+R mains

Behringer EP 4000 pro amp for the Danley DTS-10 tapped horn sub
Oppo BDP-93 universal BD player
Toshiba HD XA2 HD dvd player
Sony VW-VPLPRO1 1080p PJ

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Integra M504
Yamaha M80
Kenwood KA9100
Dahlquist DQM 909
Dahlquist DQM 905

M504, huge meters, beautiful rosewood side panels. Fine amplifier.

M80, a monster. Stable at 2 ohms. First 30 watts pure class A into 8 ohms. Sweet thug of an amp.

Kenwood Ka9100, great phono section, beautiful external heat sinks, silver face, little meters, sounds good.

DQM 905s, ridiculously excellent sounding speakers. Thanks Carl Marchisotto for these speakers.

DQM 909s, go deeper than the 905s, flagship of the DQM line.

My Rega Planar 3 from 1985 (I'm the original owner) is still sounding fabulous with just a new belt and re-lubrication - does that count?

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Back in the day when i had a 2 channels setup...

I had:
Classe DR6 preamp,
Mitchell Gyrodec TT
Sumiko modded SME V or IV arm
Sumiko Blue Point Special Nude cartridge
Classe DR10 amps running in bridge mono
Martin Logan Sequels 2


Loved it very much, and I wish I still had it.

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

I've never owned anything mainstream vintage, until recently when my loving wife surprised me with a fully-restored classic Marantz 2226B receiver. Even the backlighting was brought up to spec! I hooked up this 26W beastie to my HeManRig for giggles (expecting to set it up for failure), but was shocked to find the little-engine-that-could wasn't totally embarrassed filling the void left by my 600W+ monoblocks. The 2226B left me shaking my head in (suspended - haha lol) disbelief. I guess it's true that for normal-to-subdued listening levels, it's really only the first watt that counts. If you can't get that right, nothing else matters! Anyway, I love the feel of Marant's much celebrated gyro tuner and polished reflective look of the front panel and knobs.

I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

The old Marantz amps were beautiful pieces of equipment!

Ok, who is still seduced by vintage audio? There are quite a few followers of the 1970s classics. Double Large Advents anyone?
I still have a Scott tube tuner.

That's about the same time I purchased mine.
What arm and cartridge did you add?

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.
