Just sending a ch ching (from me glass of scotch.) from uk, coz we don't do what you doing now brother. Respect. 

 

My Rotel is working out killer. Serious. :D

 

(drunk? Yes.)

Wow... great post. :D (I wish I could remember writing it.... Now that is worrying.. Ouch my head.. Still managed good punctuality as well!)

 

Got told I was being made redundant yesterday... The company is sending my job to another country. Thats why I got so drunk.. Still things could be worse. I'll just have to get a better one! Then I'll be able to afford a some serious vintage. 

 

Oregonian, your spec rack looks the bees knees bud! Jealous ;)

Ya - waiting for my turn - everyone around me has been replaced with offshore.

Picked this up for $150 on Wednesday.  Bench tests at 46 wpc and not a scratch on it - absolutely mint!  Got this in the hope that it would sound better than the first 2230 I had - no such luck - raspy mids and sizzle-y highs.  Very disappointing - especially when I hear so many comments on AK about this being a favorite of the 22xx series.  Oh well - won't have any trouble getting my money back (and then some).

Great contributions from Skylab; Oregonian. I was wondering what the article pictured in the lower right was - imported media from Japan?

:popcorn:

Upfront: I am tired. But I feel good. Prior to getting stuffed on Salmon and Sweet Potatoes yesterday, I enjoyed a 50 mile bike ride along the Pacific Ocean. I'd argue that I'm not tired from the ride but rather from dinner. Food & drink can be very taxing. :wink_face:

 

Still sleepy, I pointed my browser to head-fi and headed straight to this thread. Upon seeing your beautiful stove and your beautiful Spec rack, I immediately thought of:

Perhaps, it's their grand stature... :rolleyes:

Yeah it sucks bud. 

 

Shame about the Marantz.  it looks gorgeous anyhow! I think the only Marantz I would buy these days would be very late 70's. The sound of the older one that I've got sounds very unrefined compared to Sansui/Pioneer from the same time.

Cheers guys much appreciated. You're all goodins! 

 

Back to the normal schedule :) 

 

Heres a pic of my new Rotel RA 820XB. Such a great headphone amplifier, I'd highly recommend it and it sounds much better than my 70's Rotel. This is one company it seems that improved in the eighties.

Yup. 

 

Am currently seriously considering a turntable by Rotel - just came up for sale locally.

Had an eighties Rotel CD player that was absolutely awesome.  My son has it now.  Always liked Rotel.
