    Can the two outputs work simultaneously at the same time or it is one at a time only?

    The Fisher 160 receiver. Non tube solid state made in 1968. Works fine, sounds very nice, looks good too!
    A DUAL 1219 turntable. It needed a little cleaning/lubrication, and a stuerpimple. Sounds sweet with a Shure M95ed.

    Merlin Music Systems Signature 4. I've had some Merlin 1b speakers for four or five years, and love their coherence, so I jumped on the opportunity to get these on an eBay local pickup near me.

    At 5'2" and 220 lbs each, theyre huge. Here they are next to my 1b's

    The sound is amazingly coherent, with bass that keeps going lower with seemingly no end. I added some HPM-1500 supertweeters for that little bit of sparkle that they needed, and now I want to come home every night and listen again.

    20171011_210453.jpg 20171011_191141.jpg Well I just picked up two interesting pieces. I scored a eico HF81 for $400 all original and working in great cosmetic shape. I'm not a tube guy so I think I did ok but i'm not sure. Posting a couple pictures if a subject matter expert could chime in and tell me if I did good and how much I should ask for it as I am not planning on keeping it. It has only one issue and that is the level knob scratches and pops when you turn it and speakers cut in and out. When its in the right position everything works flawlessly.

    My second score was a set of Eminent Technology LFT8a speakers with the sound anchors but no grills in otherwise great shape and working flawlessly for $350.

    I refoamed the drivers and gave them to my son for his bedroom system.

    Just now bought a Pioneer SX-750 from the original owner in really good condition for $100. He must have pampered this thing. It almost looks like it just came out of the box.
