Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Yes the AU717 is a good one. It has a bold, warm, detailed sounding. The matching AT717 should be on your list too. It is one of the finer FM tuners available. I had both, which I shouldn't have sold, and can testify that they sounded better than any other vintage pieces I've owned.

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

My dubious little mind was blown recently when I found an ad for my twin arm Luxman 544 turntable that some guy wanted $1750 for - without tone arms (!!!). I think I will learn to value mine a little better. Thank God the Acoustats are back to working. GH

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

I don't know if mine quite qualify as "vintage" yet as they're from the early 80's, but I LOVE my A-150 series I. They do so much so well. They aren't exactly the most beautiful looking speakers of all time (I've refinished mine and redid the grills with black grill cloth) but they look good to me

This is them in my Living Room before I moved my Mini's back up here:

Some vintage gear still is quite nice by todays standards, plus it just feel right to be turning knobs and flipping switches.
That's what recently prompted me to buy a c. 1979 or 1980 Technics SA-500 for the "casual listening" two-channel set-up in my main-floor family room. It was exactly what I remembered - from the days of my youth - as being a very cool piece of hi-fi gear. And it looks great and sounds great!

(I have it hooked up to a pair of Mordaunt-Short Carnival 6 towers. I use it for music from my Zune, and for audio from my TV, cable box and BD player.)
