Any high end 70's Technics are worth snapping up imo. But they are rare and with this comes a high price. The SA-1000 was $1700 in 1978 :eek: 

$1,500-$1,900 was pretty much in-line with monster receivers 1978-1979 from what I've read.

That Technics was 330 watts per channel! Talk about overkill and the horsepower wars of the late sixties re animating in the late seventies. Amazing........never saw a SA-1000 on eBay or talked about anywhere. Impressive.

During the 2000s I'd see the rare monster receivers pop up for sale all the time! Including the SA-1000 but you how the audio universe works - I wasn't into getting vintage gear at the time. :rolleyes:

Correct me if am wrong but most if not all Realistics are outsourced from the bigger companies, so do a bit of research on the particular model and you can sometimes find out who made them. Interesting stuff.

I have question.  I hear alot about people with phone with low sensitivity. Planar magnetics like HE-6, and etc.. comes to mind.

 

My question is why do these people not pick up a SS amp to power it up?  Would these provide much needed juice?  Is there something about these receivers that are not for headphones?  They have a headphone jack.  Wouldn't it be more economical than paying 2k to get that 5W?

Visit the HE-6 thread and you might be in for a shock. My HE-6 has been plugged straight into the speaker taps of vintage

 

Onkyo and Sherwood iron with great results.

Bingo. Yes it would be the way to go but for some reason vintage amps are still a niche and not everyone wants the size taken up by these. These are AMAZING for headphones.

They gotta think outside the box/desk they dont need to sit on the desk. I am searching hard for some little nighstand to suit my room that these things can go on right next to my desk.

Any of your guys have the LCD-2 or HE-6.  Which amp do you guys like to use them with?

post #12419 of 13098

HE-6 via speaker taps with the Sansui G-22000
