    I was cleaning up an old Technics SA-5270 35 wpc receiver tonight in preparation for its going to a new home :-) Snapped a few photos while the hood was up; thought I'd share them here.






    Dunno if you can tell in the last two photos, but all of the panel lamps on this ca. 1976 receiver still light! Interestingly they're large-diameter, fuse-like lamps extremely similar to those found in vintage Fisher 400s and 500s. Never saw such lamps in a Japanese receiver before.
    all the best,

    mhardy6647,

    Those are some great photos of good vintage receivers there! That Technics has some decent caps.

    It's quite a bit nicer than the next model year's SA-300 or the following SA-303, I can tell you that.
    all the best,

    Default Here's a few of mine...

    The first three are Harman Kardon DVD-22
    Next we have Rotel RB-951 (Mark One)
    Finally, Rotel RB-985 THX Mark II

    Enjoy!
    I'll have to take a few tops off, but I should have some more to add pretty soon!


    Edit: I hooked up the 951 to test it, (I bought it for surround channels to complete a 7.1 setup) but it sounds better than the 985 Mk II. Puts me in a pickle, because the little 50wpc amp sounds so laid back, musical, and relaxing that I'm going to have a hard time putting the 985 back on the mains.

    Any thoughts?

    Question,

    Does the Mk I and the Mk II sound different, or the same?

    I really don't know if the Mk I and Mk II sound any different, but I do know that, at least in my case, the smaller amp sounds better than the bigger amp I own. I tried today for it to not, I hooked up the 985 and listened to some good stuff; Fourplay, Norah Jones, Sinatra, then moved on to Def Leppard and some modern pop stuff, then I switched back to the 951. The difference is too much to ignore.

    I don't own the Mk II, I grabbed that picture from this board. Thanks whoever owns that pic. :0)

    I don't think I ever posted photos of this EICO AF-4 single-ended EL84 integrated amp in this thread. This one's been in the family since it was new. My father got it in a "grab bag" from his TV parts supplier in the late-1960s and gave it to his sister. His sister used it for some time, then put it in storage. Last year, she (kindly) passed it on to me.



    all the best,

    Not to post-ho', but today's project was to (finally) upgrade the unshielded power transformer in my (very early) Bottlehead Seduction phono preamp to the shielded PT. I've only had the shielded PT sitting on my workbench in the basement for about 2 years...

    Before:





    After:

    Panamax Max 5500EX, Voltage Line Conditioner and Voltage regeneration. This beast is amazing. it will give your system a constant 120Volts as long as your system is pulling under 4.0 Amps.

    Mine was a display model and it has a factory installed clear plastic top.

    Enjoy!

    Wow I just looked at Panamax.com and they do not offer the Voltage regeneration in the 5000 series anymore. The retail price for the 5500 is $1000.00, the new 7500Pro has the voltage regeneration and it goes for $2000.00!!!

    But if you look at the guts of the 7500, it looks like they are packing a whole lot more stuff into that unit than mine. I might Have to get one! ;)

    I am bored, and you are paying the price.
    Here are the innards of a somewhat bastardized Heathkit SS-1 speaker from the 1950s. The woofer is a Jensen P8RX, not the P8RL that should be in there. Indeed, the P8RXs I have look to me to be recones, but so it goes.

    Found the speakers at the dump some years back, with nasty R/S 8" woofers replacing the Jensens but the RP-103 horns intact and working. Bought the P8RXs to replace the R/Ss; one of my first eBAY purchases.

    Finally found a good home for these (besides my basement, that is).

    Some info on these speakers at: http://members.myactv.net/~je245/vintagebudgetspks.htm

    ... and way, way at the other end of the spectrum...

    How about an S-5 Electronics "K-12" kit (actually the almost identical K-502 from www.tubesandmore.com, which used 11BM8 tubes instead of 11MS8s), with its seldom-seen factory enclosure kit?

    This very modest amp is very nice sounding and a great intro to tube kit building or tube hifi for that matter.

    Happened to have the top off Saturday and snapped a few photos in the morning sun.

    If you are referring to the round blue casing, that is a transformer. Its an off the shelf sealed torroidal tranny, you can get them at Digikey or Mouser.

    Actually I was referring to that ...and I stand corrected....When I looked at the picture and saw the way the voltages were labeled at both ends of the component it was identical to the many solid state relays I had worked with over the years. When I saw where it was mounted on the board, and the ac coming in extremely close to it ...all pointed to ssr ....hadnt seen toroidal transformers encased that small before. I figured the transformer would be larger and remotely mounted. Good catch...I was so intrigued I looked up the manufacturer... http://www.amveco.com/Low_Profile_PC.htm
