Cool gear and some excellent photography. That wall of vintage goodness in the attic(?) looks amazing.

Anyone know if this is "Vintage" or how good it is???   Its sitting here in the box.

 

Here is a pic

"Vintage:" not quite. It looks to be from the late 1990s/early 2000's. As for "good," you own it, let your ears be the judge :)

This needs an NSFW tag. It's pretty much porn :D

My Marantz 4400 front left channel has stopped working and it was just at Audio Specialties :( The rear channels work fine. I've checked all the fuses and they are all perfect. so what is it a transistor issue? it worked fine and today nothing out of the left front channel. when I turn it off the usual static still comes out of the left until it discharges. I am getting real tired of lugging these big heavy things around and am about done with it all to be honest, Portland is 200 miles away and its been there twice and $160 invested into it on top of the $400 I paid for it.

no left front channel sound on any of the front inputs, man is this frustrating! I've taken each fuse out and nothings wrong. the transistors look fine on the affected side. This 4400 was working fine just two days ago.

That sucks, sorry it keeps failing you. I had to bring my Spec 2 back and forth three times, and I only am 20 minutes away. Can't imagine being 2 hours away, I'd be kind of pissed. Have you called him yet? He does stand behind his work, I'll give him that.

Fantastique! Serious eye candy thanks. 

 

 

I've just picked up another Rotel today, I was that impressed with the hp stage on my recent NAD that I've been looking to try some other amps from the same period.

 

Anyways its the RA-820BX2. Just like my NAD 3020i its another great headphone amplifier. Not as warm as the NAD but extremely balanced and neutral. It's a nice alternative. No hiss or noise at all even with the HD800's turned right up! In very good condition, only the black paint has worn on the volume knob.

 

Very modern and minimalist looking and doesn't really look like a typical 1980's design. Heres a promo shot of it because I haven't got my camera handy. Very pleased for £60.

Hey guys,

 

just want to pass on that I got my sx1050 back from Terry Dewick out of Knoxville. He did a tremendously nice job on it. I was able to pick it up on my way to visit family in VA, so I saved myself the trip to get it. The only disappointment is that I can listen to it until I return to Atlanta on Saturday. :(

 

I decided to drop off the sx1280 for the full resto also. :biggrin:
