Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Hi All,
Nothing like ressurecting an old thread with my 1st post, but this one caught my attention. I LOVE the vintage 70's gear. My main setup is a Sansui 9090DB receiver with Bose 601's (original series I), Thorens TD160 turntable, and a Technics RS 1500 rtr. Set my son up with a Pioneer SX838, stacked original large Advent's, and Technics SL-D2 tt.

Well I guess I can add my new to me speakers I just picked up for my HT. They are B+W 801 series 80 circa 1979-80.

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

this evening i got a really nice score on my local Craigslist. a Pioneer sg9500 equalizer and a pair of Pioneer CS-MT58 speakers and i got both together for 20 dollars. it's all in like new cosmetic and functionally as well. my question is how old are these speakers, were they real expensive when new and are they considered a decent speaker? theyre around 4 feet tall or so with a 12" woofer in each, absolute monsters.

Welcome to the Forum, Bucky!

Back then Japanese speakers were generally considered to be junk. The common wisdom was to stick with manufacturers that specialized in speakers (and for the most part still holds today).

One way to tell for sure – is the tweeter a small paper cone-type (i.e. a tiny version of the drivers used for the woofs and mids)? Cone tweeters are the absolute bottom feeders of high frequency drivers.

Wayne

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

I have a tricked out SOTA Star/Saphire that is about 25yrs old but other than that I am modern gear all the way, I do think Vintage is better for the more affordable mass market offerings vs what those folks produce today but if you can spend the cash even on used todays Hi-Fi gear is much better across the board IMO

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

In a sense my main system is vintage: Proceed PAV/PDSD pre/pro, Amp 2 and Amp 3, KEF Reference 104.2s mains and 102.2 surrounds. New or newer stuff is Sony SCD-XA5400ES, PS3-80, and DirecTV HD-DVR as sources, DVDO Edge video processor, Sony VPL VW-50 projector, Velodyne SMS-1 LF DRC and HGS-15 sub. Vinyl is a Thorens TD160 with an SME II arm and Ortofon 30H cartridge. Real vintage stuff is in the closet waiting to be set up: Marantz 18 receiver, AR3a speakers, and an AR turntable with Shure V15-Mk II cartridge, the system of my post-doc years.

The main system sounds great to me, but I'd like to hear the real vintage system again if I can figure out where to set it up.
