Really hard to even consider playing the cassette player with all the other shiny toys just waiting for me break the seals on some analog tapes and records, A real jewel this RT was, I even got some old tapes that recorded to practice sessions of an up and coming band at the time.
Nothing like some shiny s to make a audio addict smile or just get a crazy lunatic look in their eyes ,, hehe
Silver Power with big handles and who doesnt like to see those needles hitting the sweet spot :) this couple have been together a long time according to my benefactor who was kind enough to let me bring these guys back into business.
Pioneer TX 9500
Anyone remember actually using EQs ? Button and lever lovers can tweak these for days :)
The Infinity QLS 1s. I was fortunate enough to find some new mid dome drivers for this pair not long after a recap and refoaming and some TLC, These were truly a pleasure to restore. ok maybe thats exagerating things a bit, they are a challenge if done properly.
Klipsch KG 5.2 rescue speakers that I just couldnt let go to the speaker graveyard
Actually Have a weak spot for slightly sick Infinity and Klipsch speakers who end up on Skidrow waiting to grabbed up by by slightly insane speakerholics or pretty much anyone who accidentally acquire some of the absolutely great craftsmanship and solid designs of the 60s and 70s gear and high end speakers, listen up ,always allow a few feet for a reliable fast exit for the slightly crazed audiophiles who invade the goodwills with visions of orphaned tube amps and the shiny silver or gold audio pieces that haunted their dreams:) Giant horn drivers and beautiful walnut cabs or the famous Infinity's of yesteryear , yes these poor pitiful pieces of Audio Perfection beckoned us all to rescue them,, oops I must apologize for reliving those moments when we knew we had hit the motherload;) Cheers
A few strays I rebuilt and rehomed
Infinity Crescendo 3007s that were rescued from a dumpster and given some new tweeters, caps and refoamed, not bad for home theater duty until I rehomed them.

Testing out the new arrivals before they go into surgery :) Having an empty finished basement with lots of rooms is just awesome as a Speakerholic, Rotating pairs on random or regular intervals can also be added to the excuses that we need to amass our secret audio empire:)
Scaling tall buildings and feats of strength hardly garner any attention these days, admitted we are powerless until we acquire our dream amp we must prevail against all odds to bring home our shiny lost pieces of history to restore to their former glory, this is the life of the poor audiophile, but suffer on we must :) Cheers
Pioneer The rack, Pioneer store exhibit system and personal system of a good friend who was kind enough to allow me to bring this late 70 system back to its former glory, another classic audio addict was made for life after enjoying this restore and the mighty Infinity QLS 1s that came with it, thx Pete wherever you are these days :)
