nice work - I use a nibbling tool as well. They even work on the thicker steel chassis if I take smaller bit off at a shot.

 

You're post is giving me some incentive to do my Sansui once I get my new headphone/line driver completed - too many projects here and not enough time :-)

 

73's

Happy new year folks!

 

Glass of Scotch in hand and Sansui nicely warmed up. I'm gonna join my family in a mo, but just enjoying a little peace (Branford Marsalis style) before the party starts :beerchug:

I'm hoping to get a call from Terry who is doing the restoration on my sx1280. I'd love to drive up to TN and pick it up before I have to get back to work. 

 

Happy new year everyone!!

Now, if you return from TN with an unmarked barrel and no Pioneer in sight, I'll :wink_face: keep silent... "Happy New Year!" to you and yours.

A lovely description, sidrpm. Let's celebrate the years 2014 and.... 1978!!!

Happy New Year to my "vintage friends".

1st pic of the year! I've fallen for the NAD sound... It's very classic Sansui like- warm and detailed without any aggression. Anyhow picked this 80's 7130 receiver up for not very many pennies. Lovely tuner and the HP out is fantastic. Perfect for the HD800's. Dead silent and what a luxuriant sound! Unfortunately, when I was un-boxing and in a hurry to get it out I grabbed the flimsy front fascia and the side broke off in my hands.... I swore very loudly I can tell ye! Luckily I'm a dab hand with a tube of glue and was able to stick it back to together. You can only notice on close inspection.  

 

I know they look like Hot Poop compared to 70's steel, but I just love their sound.

I have a NAD M15 that I like very much.  It was well regarded for its two channel sound even though it is a surround processor.  Hardly vintage though.

Good stuff. This is my second NAD, I also have a 3020i amp, the last incarnation of the award winning 1979 model. (and just for anyone else who's interested :)-They are very popular here in the uk and they soon gained a reputation for punching above their price bracket as a no thrills cheaper alternative to the likes of Naim. The early NAD sound is what I'd describe as coloured with a leaning towards warmth (very warm bass) and smoothness through out the FR (very silky). This sound will not be for everyone but feeding an hd800 its perfect to my ears. I wouldn't use one with Audeze or bassy speakers though.

NAD Model 60 coming soon.
