Greetings!
« on: November 29, 2015, 06:51:40 PM »
Hello, everyone.

I have a tendency to dabble in vintage Hi-Fi. I'm a collector of records of all sorts, and have a modest collection of LP's, 45's, and not quite as many 78's as I would like to own. I love everything old.

Got back into vinyl about two years ago, with a passable entry-level turntable and a Pyle 90-watt mini-amp. Due to an anti-skate issue that I tried to fix, it is no longer worthy of even my 78's.

I just picked up a Dual 621, and while I wasn't looking, people neglected to bid on a demn-fine looking Philips 677, so I got that also. Awaiting shipments, I picked up a nice looking Toshiba 7550 receiver (Craigslist) for my new-old TT's. Still need something for my 10-inchers, though.

Yes, it does. I will need obtain a few choice tapes to see if it works. The insides look clean and in order, so we'll see!

I just discovered a little record shop up the road a piece... prob find something there.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your stay.  Might have to warn you though, this vintage habit is addictive.

Hey BJ. Been up all night because I'm so sick from the chemo already. Got really caught up on audio forums and FaceBook.
Mark Zukerberg and his Asian wife (not sure what flavor) just had a baby and named it Max. Should have named him Steven.
