Few from the past
« on: December 28, 2017, 04:52:14 AM »
Hi all,

What can I say about this wonderful hobby. Music is a passion that runs in my family and it seems to have infected me as well. I've been collecting for a while now.

Couple of pictures of some of my gear.

I love Sansui equipment.  Some say its the poor mans McIntosh.  Either way its some really good gear to my ears.  That turntable though is beautiful.

The 9500 & 717 in the photo comes with how it was back in 1974 & 1979, original box, all manuals, warranty cards & receipt. The 9500 is special to me for it's low end sound.

Couple more Sansui. 517 & B2101/C2101
