  1. Two Channel Audio
    I picked up this unit on ebay a little while back and while it powers on and plays quite nicely (very nice - in fact), it is pretty dusty and a little beat up. The main unit chassis is a little loose. I was thinking of having a qualified tech take a look at is and repair anything necessary (got...

    I want to get into some old vinyl records. My wife and I enjoy old Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, you get the idea and we've been talking about starting a new hobby of looking for old albums. I've been looking at some old Pioneer direct drive units but not too sure what to look...

    I purchased a Pioneer Vintage CT-F6060 Cassette Tape deck at a garage sale today. Not sure if it works, but it powers up and the meters are bright. Only paid $10.00, but thought it looked interesting. Anyone know anything about this deck, or tell me where I might find some information on it...

    So I have decided that my office in my house is going to go Retro and not the new version of retro but actual retro... My wife's great aunt passed away recently and had lots of old school furniture, clocks, temperature guages, etc. Well I ended up with some cool knick knack items like 3...
  6. Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Do you think that there would be enough interest in having a dedicated forum topic on vintage computers like the Apple, Commodore (Amiga, CD32 & 64), Atari and other old gaming platforms that some of us either still use or miss? If there is enough interest we may put a section up. Please...
  7. Home Audio Speakers
    I picked up a set of KLH model 5 speakers for a great deal. when I heard them I was like wow. I found out they were made from 1968-1972. 4 drivers in the speaker and they are a 3 way speaker. I am guessing with the age they are going to need the capasitors replaced. very clean smooth sounding...

    I've searched this forum and I finally went in this forum section. Because I dont talk about subs but for the best use of what I get on hands. I have a pair of 15" JBL K-145, 2420 mid-high compression drivers, McCaully 9" horns(similar to the JBL 2391 accoustic lens) or the standard 20"...

    I have a desire to refinish some vintage speakers and need some fresh grill cloth. I found this website that has fender style gril cloth...I am ok with guitar cab style grill cloth because it often has the same look...I'm just looking for a better price than $15-$35/ linear yard...

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