Slowly working my way through these fascinating adverts. This one also puzzled me; quite why they used two cartridges to get stereo, when Alan Blumlein had patented orthogonal stereo in 1931, is a bit of a mystery.
Blumlein was a genius, sadly killed whilst developing radar during WWII, at age 38, with128 patents to his name.
You can have the reciever, I'll take what it's sitting on
I'd prefer what's sitting on it...
The Marantz fans have been strangely quiet...
Flip that Paragon and you could buy a bunch of those receivers.
Not familiar with Paragon (or much vintage stuff, really; the Marantz is pretty distinctive, though).
I was thinking more about Uma, although she's not sitting on it it that photo, unlike one of the other ads in the series...
This caught my attention on a Japanese auction site.
Loved the Highland commercial.
Phew: all done.
I have only two things found in these pages (or links therefrom)
A Sony Walkman 2, with all original accessories (probably the box, too somewhere). Bought as 'B' grade from a mate who worked at Sony, Feltham, in 1982. The headphones are still excellent.
An Aiwa tape deck from a component system, bought when I was a student. Not used in 20 years, probably. Not working, and not worth reviving...
Oh, and various cassette tapes...
