    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?

    I'm sure it's the same or very close in design.

    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" :).

    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.

    One of the very few 70s receivers I have kept out of about thirty.

    For the most part I have moved on from the 70s receivers.I picked up this unit near the end of that run and it worked and sounded pretty damn good.Good enough to push my 9090db out and most all the rest.But like anything forty years old it showed some age related issues.The tuner string became loose enough to not move the dial pointer and through the phono section a resistor starts smoking.In spite of these I chose to keep this and have a total resto on it(not done yet)due to the sound I heard and the beauty(the best looking 70s unit IMO) of it.Really the only advice is it is old and going to more than likely need some refreshing but well worth it.

    Ashly XR2001... It's no Driverack 48xx but it'll do for now. Just need to get cabling and we'll be well on our way to hearing these Tesseracts for the first time!

    I was lucky enough to grab a Yamaha CX-1000 preamp from an AK member to pair with my Yamaha MX-1000 amp that I picked up in August. The preamp needs repair, but is in excellent condition. Life is good!
