First I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to the staff and members of AK. You all have been a valuable resource as I venture back into the world of vintage hi-fi. I've loved music since growing up in the 60's. My first 45 purchase was Paperback Writer/Rain. I was 7 and I just wanted a record of my own to play on my sister's record player. Through my teen years I bought a lot of albums and scraped up enough to buy a Philips 212 Electronic to keep them minty. Eventually I got an HK 430 but never decent speakers. Marraige, kids, mortgage, life, divorce, etc for the last 20yrs or so I've been happy listening to my Denon AV system with Polk RT1000P's for front stereo for my records and cds. As the equipment deteriorated I finally decided to get serious about a new AV receiver and fix the amps in my Polk towers only to find the new AV recievers don't have phono inputs. So I went back to Craigslist (where I originally bought my Denon/Polk/Toshiba TT setup) and now, with the help of you guys here I'm on a two month aquisition spree. MCS 6700TT. MCS3233 Receiver. HK PM660 Amp w/ components. Kenwood KA3500 Amp and tuner. Polk RT1000i's (for parts) with a Yamaha HTR 5860 AVR thrown in (my new AVR) MCS 3125 receiver. Wharfedale 9.4, 9CS with Premier Acoustics PA10sub for surround. ...and assorted other speakers and lower amps and pieces. Now I'm concentrating on speakers for the big boy amp. Today I aquired some DCM TF400 speakers which are nice but I don't think this is the end. I know it's not proper to talk dollars here but the DCM's probably put me over the $1000 mark for all that shit so I don't think I'm doing so bad. All are in working order and my only labor so far is cleaning and deoxing. I don't have a big place but and now I'm not so sure how to separate my AV from my hi-fi with out actually losing some furniture. For now it's just fun playing with my new toys. Thanks again this site is awesome. I will be paying my membership soon it's well worth it!
