I couldn’t agree more. A happy bar is an open bar! big_smile

P.S. UK and Ireland pubs are still shut. sad

Wow, I guess that is why I see so many pub sheds being built and showcased on youtube.

Very cool cabinet by the way.

Thanks! big_smile
I have a big shed/den coming in about six weeks myself! Won’t put it on YouTube though. tongue

Pub beer gardens reopened yesterday but only in England. Scotland and Wales I’m not sure about but we’re still closed in Northern Ireland roll Right in the middle of a freezing arctic blast of weather! lol It was snowing here yesterday.

I recapped the sansui's power supply last year.. rebuilt the crossovers in the speakers and got the spring reverb connections resoldered.. I have he other set of speakers but took up too much space in my den... its a quad amp
Works great!

The real to reel has a channel out but 3 channels work, just wish it wasnt the left channel on a 2 track recording, sucks..

My dad bought this setup when he was stationed in Japan...

That reel to reel is rad. I’ve always wanted one. cool

Re: Vinyl and Vintage Audio Thread

Starting off the day with a little vintage punk... Since I’ve been working from home for the last year I think the best part is that I get to listen to my records all day, everyday.... And so do my neighbors...

Yeah, I picked up a pre-amp to use with my modern receiver in case the sansui ever goes down. It sounds like shit. Night and day difference between my Sansui and my Sony lol

Edit- actually what you’re seeing in that picture is the box to my Discwasher lol But the pre amp is right behind it..

Nice!! Yes, I have a yamaha as500 running tv, Bluetooth and turntable, its about 8 years old.. it does the job, but its not my Sansui.. I feel you there... I think a more warm and robust amp is in my future.. The phono tube amp helps get some of that warm tone back.

Nice setup and cool room. Love the bowie board.

Exactly!

It’s amazing how warm and rich a tube amp sounds compared to a solid state. I’ve considered picking one up. The MC240 I want is expensive, and I know the extra care you have to take with a tube regarding warming up, and maintenance can be a pain- but the sound is sooooo good!

Thanks man! That Bowie board is my favorite. Jason Lee is rad and David Bowie is one of my favorite artists. I named my dog Ziggy Stardust lol

Re: Vinyl and Vintage Audio Thread

I’m a total freak about dust around my TT. My stylus is so sensitive that the slightest amount on my records make them sound awful. I have this crazy cleaning routine every time i put on or flip a record lol

Everywhere else I couldn’t care less. I make my daughter dust wink

I have one of these and they are awesome. Well worth the $.

No issues and I have done hundreds of albums with it. I use a small craftsman shopvac.. perfect.

I’ve seen something similar. Legit cool

My carbon brush, Discwasher, then record DR roller routine seems to be doing the trick for now. Been hesitant to buy something that doesn’t fit in a drawer. But if I decide I need something better, I’ll definitely consider one. Thanks man!

This is my 40s era phono art portable tube powered  turn table.
Great display piece and has decent sound for its age.

Re: Vinyl and Vintage Audio Thread

Not vintage, more like Old School. Threw these on before night shift. It’s an odd mix but so what?! tongue
