Check out this set of vintage Magnavox speaker. Super efficient horn two way. Would be great with a tube amp.

Many of you know about the supply line problems these days. This unfortunately include Rega as some of you know. We did come by one available P3 in our recent order. It includes the exact cartridge.

To the folks, and more than a few, were looking for a set of Fyne F300s, we now have a few pairs in stock. They have been hard to get due to production issues caused by the past year. If these speakers are new to you, they are an amazing little bookshelf speaker. Stop in and give them a listen.

One of the very last receivers made before Superscope sold the the Marantz company to Philips. The stuff made after that was no where near the same quality, even though they tried to keep the appearance.

How about a vintage set of McIntosh XL 10 speakers. Funny to think that some might consider this a "big" speaker. It's teeny compared to some of the top of the line models.

The early Dual 10 series turntables are among our favorites. A fully automatic turntable that will compete with many an audiophile manual. This on is in amazing condition, with a bubble dust cover that is also in outstanding shape. #vinyl #austintx

Sure, it's not a 2270, but for average and smaller rooms, it's plenty powerful. Plus, it now has Bluetooth, so you can stream all your Tidal, Deezer, and the like. And if you're born in the `60's like we were, don't feel bad if you don't recognize words in the last sentence.

This Kenwood KR-5030 sounds as good as it looks. We just finished the amp restoration, and it's ready for a new home. Do message or call before you come. This is likely to sell soon.

Here's a classic turntable from Sanyo. Very similar to an early 1970s Pioneer model. So much so, we wonder if Sanyo actually bought and relabeled the unit. Just as with cars and trucks, this also happened in audio industry.

The Marantz 22 pre dates most of the more commonly known models. It's also rare in comparison. This one has just completed an extensive rebuild, and is ready for a new home.

One of the earliest McIntosh amps to feature "power guard". These can drive down to a two ohm load with no trouble at all. This one is just out of restoration, and ready for a new home.

Pretty rare set of early Sansui speakers. Very nice shape, and they sound great too. Speaking of Sansui, you can also see one of our SF-2 Omni speakers in the background.

This is a Krell KSA-200S class A amplifier. And wow does it sound glorious. It weighs over a hundred pounds! The name actually comes from the movie, Forbidden Planet. "As though his ape's brain could contain the secrets of the Krell."
