    Default Which button was it?

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    Think he'd qualify as a "gear head"?

    I am pretty sure I spot 4 maybe 5 things I owned in the early 80's there :)

    Looks like a garage sale in a bedroom.

    Man , I remember when reel to reel was the **** and cassettes were for rookies :p

    R2R is still the sh!t, done right. Talk about tedious, makes vinyl look easy.

    No doubt.....I want to love R2R but it's a lot more hassle than vinyl plus the availability of tapes is a real issue. Listening to Ken's R2R and PF '05 is still one of my audio high water marks.

    I think that is all Pioneer stuff.

    Troy, the big RT-909 R2R you see in the photo is a great player. I have a RT-707 which is comparable in sound playback but cannot play 10" reels. He also has a RT-707 lower on that same rack.

    I also have a Teac X-2000 which is my baby. What kind of player did Ken have at PF?

    Carl, it was a Stellavox. Sounded great too.



    That pic......a wall of mediocre sound, IMO.
