Rare vintage audio
« on: November 28, 2009, 12:36:18 AM »
Anyone got any rare vintage components?
I have a Philips DFA-1000 copper chassis, built in D/A converters, 125 w.p.c. first 25 in class A. Rare and beautiful. I will take some pics and post later.
 I love the rare stuff, if anyone has some please share.

Dude, that is a kick ass integrated amp. The DFA-1000 in Class A opeartion is superb. I have nice True Image set consisting of a sweet pre and two matching boat anchor power amps.

The last time Tom and I talked about True Image and getting one a pre and amp came up on ebay.  So if we keep talking about it one might just show up. ;D
Got Carver?

I have a Pioneer A-717 "Reference Stereo Amplifier" intergrated amp with the copper chassis. I don't know if it is rare, but it sounds great.

I also have a pair of Allison one speakers.

Last, I have a cute little pair of Polk Mini Monitors.
