This beast come home with me a few days ago.
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.
Picked this Sumo II up along with a handful of G.A.S. sleeping beauty's and a Denon DL 303 from a gal who used to work for Infinity back in the day.
A pair of Electro-Voice Interface A's in need of refoam with the optional tweeter savers.
I refoamed the drivers and gave them to my son for his bedroom system.
10/6/2017-Mcintosh MC2505 private party
10/18/2017-Mcintosh MC2105 Audio Classics-wanted more wattage...............
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.
This pair from Esoteric.
First time I have seen this tweeter saver, wonder if its the same as the tweeter protection used in the Sentry III MK1
the case is about the same size?
Another Onkyo C-7030 CD player and some bargain (but nice!) RCA cables from Amazon
I'm sure it's the same or very close in design.
Another RXV1.Like these so much I have now have two.Excellent amplifier sections in these.For receivers it doesn't get much better.
A Shure audio obstacle course- era iii.
It is warped. Is the warpage intentionally designed?
I've finally reached the end (or is it the actual start?) Wandered into Reel to Reel with a nice Pioneer RT-1011. Needed a good cleaning and a bit more work, but this one has VU meters AND spinny things!
The tape it came with had a recording of live Supertramp I think in China. I wont do anything to overwrite that side for now
Benz-Micro Lukaschek PP-1 T9 MC preamp and bargain MC20E2L cartridge.
The preamp is gorgeous, both visually and aurally, and is a keeper. The cheap cartridge is very good, but will probably go after I save my pennies for a Glider or a "Woodie" .
Trust me, you will love a "Woodie" (so to speak.)
I picked up a pair of M&K satellite's and Servo Subwoofer from the original owner the other day He bought them in 1978, I didn't need them but for $65 I couldn't pass them up. I have them in the bedroom now with a Carver C-4000 and a Yamaha 80 watt amp and they sound great. Best purchase in a while.
