Hi REB,
My main source for headphones is a Meridian 506, and on the Kenwood (vinyl and tape)

Holy mother of Christ! 800euros for a AU-717??? Yikesss! think im gonna grab all the X17s i can, ship em over to EU & make a killin! what say u REB - u wanna go into the vintage amp biz wit me?? LOL. dont know if should say this incase u guys think im gloating but i paid $250 for teh AU-517...& TU-717 combo! & i thought that was high. i just sold the TU-717 tuner for $200 tongue.gif.

 

seriously i dont know whether to shed tears of sympathy for u europeans or laugh in joy at the ridiculously low (relatively) prices we pay here. not that i dont choke...cough...cough...at the prices i sometimes see. i almost tossed ma lunch the other day seeing someone ask $1800 for a Pioneer 1980 receiver on the local CL. incase u havta ask, the 1980's pioneer TOTL monsta receiver sporting 300w rms per channel weighing something like 80lbs! basshead.gif. things like twice da size of reg receivers - niceeee

 

O & incase we think that big bucks, Sansui's equivalent G-33000 goes for $8-10k. its all bout braggin rights & yaa they are very prized collectables too. LOL

That is indeed a sweet rig, CrazyRay.  Kenwood made some GREAT gear back in the day.

Hi Scottiebabie, great idea! Let's get rich dealing in vintage stereo equipment. good thing is, sansui stuff is easily changed from 110v to 220v. usually it's just a switch right on the back.

 

No seriously, I don't know why sansui fetches these prices. Luxman (except for the really high-end stuff) is relatively cheaper. there's apparently still a mystique associated with sansui. That said, I totally understand it L3000.gif!

Hi scottiebabie,

The wood combo is a Pioneer SA-8100 integrated amplifier with a Pioneer TX-8100 tuner.

The Kenwood is this system, Kenwood KA-907 pre amp and Kenwood KT-917 Tuner.

I've got a Marantz 1060, love it.  Don't use it much anymore other than for a cheap speaker set up in my other living room.  Used to use it with the HD600 and it was great.

I Sold The RSA amp because i find the vintage Kenwood 600 sounds wonderful. The KA 7300 Sounds great too.  and it is Cheap.  Easy to mod with fancy or cheap capacitors.

post #72 of 12930
