    Yea that was it. One bad boy and great for party night.
    4 901's hung in the corners, a TEAC R2R and a monster Nitto amp I've never seen the likes of again.
    Okinawa PX purchases.
    Needed it all to drown out the sound of B-52 touch and go's at the end of Mather AFB in Sac.

    Well, like you said, Blitz; it's all about the music.

    I'm listening to it now and sounds ok by my old ears. Maybe it's the Pickering but the highs are there. Slick and Balin's vocals are clear and up front. I do recall the tape back in the day lacked sizzle.
    But these dang click, pops and surface noise. How can any of you listen to this archaic vinyl any more.
    MP3's are where it's at. The future. Get on board! :p

    I know right. Need to keep it clean though. It's on a half circle track set up.

    My roommate, who's deck it was, would get pissed if you hit the auto-reverse and flipped the head instead of the tape.
    "Alignment reasons" he said.

    Yep. Great party's back then. It was my 1st exposure to real "Hi-Fi" other than a few of the old timers my Father worked with in the 70's who were mysterious and always had really good sound when we'd go over for Pinochle night.

    The theory is it locks tape azimuth down on the head. Spinning tape backwards as is common, Moves the tape obviously. The tape is still this way. Genius

    Thanks for the heads-up. The re-mastered cd I have is on the UM label and was released in 2010. It sounds fantastic.

    Same here. Walking into that Exchange audio department was a moving experience for a 19 year old, To put it mildly

    My past started with vinyl; my future will end with cd's.

    I love vinyl again. the feel. the organic, especially run through the Ruskie Little Dot tubes into the C-50
    A typical day off with 2 TT's, I'll have a stack of stuff 8inches high strewn all over to put away by the end of the night/
