    All my gear is Vintage.

    Good morning, Everything I have is vintage, I would say 1970's and up. I like the older stuff. I like the older Pioneer components, My SX-850 system is one, KLH 911B speakers, Luxman PX-100 TT, Mitsubishi DT-40S tape deck. Still working Fine. Thanks John.

    One of my brothers had KLH speakers when I was growing up. He had some awesome systems and I even remember he set up a quad channel rig.

    Very Cool system you have put together!
    I always liked the Mitsubishi equipment, and love the older Luxman stuff!
    My uncle had some big Mitsubishi amps (Late 70's early 80's), and they sounded really good.

    The Mitsubishi cassette decks are a really nice IMHO:

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    I too use vintage. Built the system decades ago and have mostly been happy with it as is. If I get a real bargin, like a Dynaco Stereo 400 for $50 that I can bring back to life I will go for it, but mostly I live with what I have.

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    There is something special in great vintage gear.
    That was the time where music was the goal. As Jontahan Halpern said once " I want to know why it has been recorded, not how it has been recorded" . This statement could be applied to most great vintage units. Supremely musical.
    My MC2205 is better to me than were my 501's and my 2301's.
    Less definition for sure, but much more music.
    It is also the only amp in my house which really makes the Heresy III sounding fabulous.
    I have a MR77 tuner. I had a MR85 also. Sold the 85 and kept the 77. That says all.

    Still original, I own (2). When it is time to recap I will put the other one into service. I built one of this Model from a kit when I was 11. It did not work right, I had to send it to Heath to get it right. Love the 8 watts of sound!

    The right combination of components makes the difference. I have a Main system too, a little more modern but, yet vintage. Great hobby, glad to be here! Enjoy your music because that IS why we are here...LOL.

    I tried to edit the pictured post above, NG. The pictures were taken in the 1960's.

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    I like working on the vintage stuff. Most of the stuff out there needs a little something when buying from a regular Joe. Pots need cleaning, capacitors need replacing. Finding replacement hardware can be the biggest headache and sometimes it is possible to find superior components to the originals. Speakers are fun because they can challenge my woodworking skills. There is plenty of helpful people and ideas in these forums who are willing to help out. Plus, there is always the option to customize / experiment / hopefully enhance ones gear. The payoff can be quite gratifying when the heavenly sounds come out.

    I know this thread is old, but I'm with you. I also enjoy working on the older gear. There is something satisfying about giving new life to an old piece of gear. My current project is a mid 60's Fisher tube amp that my wife (yes, you read wife) found for me. I think because she has a "vested interest", she's as excited to hear it as I am to restore it.

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    With the amount of retired people in Hi Fi could a company like a Heath Kit style company make a retro kit and sell enough to make it worth it. It might not be your main system but a small office or den with a tube amp and preamp might be a source of pride if you built it your self. The kit could come with a magnifying glass and we would be golden. Could be sold in a choice of parts quality level A 6,000 dollars level B 4,000 dollars Level C 2,000 dollars all the same just better parts. It would be vintage without the Ebay and the rust the rip offs. Good sounding gear not Soulution level but good sounding with Million dollars worth of pride built in. Would the business model work.

It would be vintage without the Ebay and the rust the rip offs. Good sounding gear not Soulution level but good sounding with Million dollars worth of pride built in. Would the business model work.
    Our first stereo growing up was a Heath Kit tube amp, preamp and tuner that my father built. He even built the speakers. I loved the warm, rich inaccurate sound of that system. It would be great if kits like those were still around.

    My 1964 Eicho Tuner was a kit.

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    I thought some might like to see the completed K-1000 project. The original kit builder did a less than stellar job, so all solder joints needed to be reflowed. Since that needed to be done, and given the age of components, replacing everything except 3 power resistors that measured within spec just made sense to me. The left channel wasn't working, and I found a wiring mistake on the hidden side of the turret board (my guess is that the left channel never worked) It has a number of hours on it now, and it appears pretty stable with all voltages within spec.

    It sounds really nice. It's still on my workbench, and driving a pair of older Wharfedale bookshelfs. This amp weighs in at 70 lbs, and I really don't want to lug it around anymore than I need to. lol When the weather improves, I'll make a plan to drive it over to Audio Classics in Binghamton, NY and have their tech staff measure it's performance, and make any adjustments needed.

    Nice amp. The only vintage gear I have is my Lenco L-75 but it's been modded (big plinth, air bearing linear tracking arm, rewired) so that doesn't really count. The rest of my gear is just old from the late 70's to early 80's. The cables are relatively new.

    That's a good question. I'm sure someone will drop by who has a deeper level of Fisher history.

    Re: All my gear is Vintage.

    Picked up a luxman DX103 cd player. I guess 1983 qualifies as vintage. Unit is virtually brand new. Came with box, original packing and remote. Japan market model so using a converter. I have a couple bad cds that my marantz 5005 and my rotel tribute will get hung up on but this one advances past the spot and keeps playing.
