Share some of your early system setups.
I fondly remember one early setup I used to have:
Yamaha CT-600 Tuner:
Kenwood KA-9100 Integrated amp (look at the analog meters!!):
Infinity Quantum Jr Speakers:
Old wood base Girard Turntable with Sure V-15 I cartridge
(sorry - couldn't find a picture!)
Not too bad for a poor beginner... ;)
What were some of your modest beginning rigs?
