This Kenwood KR 8050 is quite a beast! Dig those meters!
A McIntosh 2200 with a new lease on life and ready for a new home.
A very nice Pioneer PL A25 is now available. Before turntables were made of plastic.
Here’s A cool little Technics SA 300. Great entry level classic.
A Marantz 2245 with the optional walnut enclosure. It’s al ready for a new home.
A Pioneer PL-518 turntable with custom walnut finish. These originally came with a gray vinyl covering over the composite base. The lids are usually destroyed, and this too is brand new. And of course, it sports a brand new Ortofon cartridge. All of our new tables come with new cartridges.
A Pioneer SX 750 finished in American black walnut. These originally had a vinyl wrap. Ready for a new home. #pioneer. #vintagehifi
We now have a couple of Rega Planar 1s and 2s in stock. We are expect a couple of Planar 3s. After these are gone, the next shipment won't be here until spring.
Bask in the warm glow of this classic Sansui G-7500. Been quite a while since we've seen a bigger G series receiver. Great to look and a great sounding amp.
The Yamaha CR-820 is not only a great sounding receiver, it looks great too. Those k***s!
People often wonder why we favor the old analog receivers, and don't work on modern era receivers and AVRs. This is from a Pioneer SC-63 Elite. It's the main HDMI/Logic board. The receiver is in error mode. The fix is to replace the entire board. Once available for $600 for just the part. To Pioneers' credit, they were replacing these for free until early 2020 when they finally ran out. This one made it eight whole years until it became a brick.

This Pioneer sX 838 is waiting for you.

01/19/2022

Some will recognize this receiver right away. The Pioneer SX-1250 is easily one of the most sought after receivers ever made. This one is a little different from our other offerings, in that it is a consignment. Something we don't normally do, but decided to give it another go. Of course, like every amp and receiver we sell, it has been though an extensive overhaul.

01/07/2022

This Kenwood KR 7200 is freshly refurbed. Every cap in the power supply, preamp, and power amp has been replaced with higher spec parts. And it has a mic input with a mixer control. Yes that's right, it's ready for Karaoke!

01/05/2022

They just don't make them like this anymore. Fortunately, we have been through this CA 1010 stem to stern and it works like new.

12/17/2021

We know some of you out there have been holding out for a vintage table that is special. Well, we think the wait was worth it. This is a direct drive Pioneer PL 518, refinished in natural finish red oak. It's also sporting a hand made acrylic cover and a new Ortofon 2M Blue.

12/17/2021

This Pioneer SA 9500 sounds so satisfying. We would say it's also built like a tank. Franky, it may be built better than some.

12/09/2021

This wild looking turntable is a Rega Planar 8. A Glorious piece of engineering. On other news about Rega, supply line issues have taken a big toll. We may still have a few Planar 1 turntables for the holidays. It now looks like we won't see Planar 2 or Planar 3 turntables until the new year. The first to receive these turntables will be those customers you have made an advance purchase. To these folks, thanks for your patience.

12/04/2021

This Technics SL-QX300 is direct drive AND fully automatic. It needs a home.

11/27/2021

A nice set of Bose 901 series 6. With trumpet stands and eq. We even have the boxes so you can wrap them for under the tree.

11/27/2021

For you turntable hunters. Here’s a cool little Harmon Kardon T25. Auto return and shut off too.

11/20/2021

Our Marantz 8B is finally ready to leave the nest. Oh how this bird can sing!

11/20/2021

Here’s a cool Dual 1257 ready for a new home.

11/20/2021

A very cool Pioneer SA 6500 vintage amp with built in Bluetooth.

11/13/2021

The littlest Marantz still has big sound. It’s waiting for you.

11/06/2021

A Harmon Kardon Citation 19. Great sounding amplifier in an interesting package.

11/02/2021

This Thorens TD-160 is a rare get these days. This one needs a good home.

10/31/2021

A very nice example of the McIntosh 7082 tuner. This thing is so absurdly sensitive, it practically rips signals out of the air. You can see in the picture no antenna is connected, yet it is actually receiving KMFA in stereo.

10/30/2021

No, these aren't monoliths from 2001. It's a pair of Acoustat model 3s. These are full range electrostatic speakers. Imaging and sense of space and depth has to be heard to be believed.

10/27/2021

We love the old Dual tables. This is one of the last metal chassis units. Fully automatic of course!

10/22/2021

This old gem came to us with a bad arm. It now sports a hand made panzerholz arm board, and a new Rega RB-220 tonearm. Just about ready for its new home.

10/09/2021

A Marantz 8B has been added to the collection. It’s awaiting restoration. Stay tuned.

10/07/2021

The new Planar 1 is now in stock. It has a new finish. We have waited months to get these in. Supply line problems and all. For those that have been waiting, we have them new in the box.

10/02/2021

A very nice Ariston RD11 turntable. All ready for a new home.
