    my 50 dollar vintage setup

    Paid 10 bucks for the Pioneer SX-780 , Got the Kenwood KD-2070 Turntable for free a few years ago.



    I am waiting on the mail for one of these and this sucker will be fully functional again

    Paid 10 bucks for a replacement darlington power pack


    And tomorrow i am paying 30 bucks for a pair off pioneer CS-88a Speakers (pictured in a lower post)


    Gonna be a nice little setup on the CHEEEEEP!!

    lots of the 70's realistic equipment was great. One thing i like about the pioneers is the phono preamp is seriously one of the cleanest integrated preamps around. Minus some seriously expensive equipment that i could never afford. LOL

    Re: my 50 dollar vintage setup

    well after some closer inspection and digging i think these may very well be the speakers i'm getting. I only seen them with the grills on in the craigslist ad , but i noticed the front lip is tapered in the pic i showed above and the craigslist speakers don't have a tapered lip. But i counted the diamonds in the grill and found these. the grills are identical to the ones in the craigslist ad and they dont have a tapered lip on the front of the cabinet. WOOT!!

    Re: my 50 dollar vintage setup

    i hear they sound terrible. but that is the opinion of the SQ snobs over on audiokarma(dot)org. I seriously can't pass up a pair of speakers that are same brand and same era as my reciever for 30 bucks. LOL

    Re: my 50 dollar vintage setup

    Also to back up my theroy that those are prolly the correct speakers........ they are 26 inches tall according to the manual and in the craigslist ad they are against a cinder block wall. The average width of a cinder block is 8 inches and these sit just a inch or so higher than the 3rd block. LOL. Which means they are about 26" tall. I am a ******* super sleuth!
