    Reading an old Rolling Stone magazine from Sep. 25 1975 (Eagles on Cover) and in this edition they talk alot about what the stars were using for HI-FI.

    Here are photos of a few of them. Enjoy the time travel.

    and looking at the ads in these old magazines its amazing. The Stereo makers were at each others throats, using the others product in their ads to put them down.

    I used to have a t-shirt that said "Yeah, I'm Old. But I Got to See All the Great Bands". The mid 60s-mid 70s were a special time in music. I'm glad I was there. Thanks for posting this.

    Very nice to show the stuff. In reality most of these guys weren't home more than 2-3 days a month to enjoy it. Gotta work all the time.

    Hell yes...please do! I've been tyring to find articles just like this for years. Best I've come across is stuff about Henry Rollins, Steve Jobs, and a few others. Oh, and the Altec ad with Rod Stewart, but that only kinda counts.

    Derringer's system is serious. I bet it would knock yer socks off even by modern audio performance metrics.
