Negative on both, but good guesses. I think that means the secret is still not out. I'll spill tomorrow either way.

Great impressions of the restored 1280, Moody. There is no doubt in my mind that these vintage units sound much better after a complete restoration. I'm happy you're getting to hear the 1280 in all it's glory biggrin.gif

Just posting a pic for the sake of it. NAD for the HD800, Sansui for the Grado's. Happy happy! :D

Thanks guys. One thing I have learned through my vintage journey is, you really don't get to hear vintage gear until you get them restored. That don't mean every vintage piece should be restored(unless you are doing it yourself). What I mean by that is, a stock ka-907 for example, will still outperform something  like a refurbished au-317. And spending hundreds  to get budget gear restored just isn't cost effective. But for higher end gear, getting them restored will be very rewarding IMO.

 

 

Oh, and I'm really digging the sansui LugBug

I have a Sansui 8080 and a 8080db and thinking about re-capping them. They still sound perfect to me imho but don't know how much of a sound difference it'll be with new caps.

They're hooked up with pioneer 2 cs-77, 2 cs88, and 4 cs-63dx's and they rock!

At around 60lbs a piece...*shudder*

post #11634 of 16838

Shipping on those isn't terrible. If you pack them right, you can even put them in the USPS and they'll get there safely for about $100, $150 if it say.... Washington to Florida.

I checked FedEx a moment ago and it was roughly $150 MI to CA.

Still.... your post made for a great day dream. This week I'm going to place the lonely KEF speakers inside storage for a few months. And leave the SX-D7000; SX-650, out so I can move them to a happy home locally. I want the new listening room to have more space, more Zen.

Very cool idea.  I've got at least one old Yamaha.
