IMHO - they were overrated anyway.  When I bought the 2400L I thought I was buying the best there was - until that is I wandered into Stereo Emporium in Buffalo NY one day and was taken to school.  They were all setup with Audio Research, Levinson, and Acoustat.  From that point on I wished I had stopped there first.   The SAE was OK, but did not have the sense of refinement and detail that other high end stuff had - dare I say that some of the vintage receivers we all love are better?  Not a stretch in my opinion.

So my brother's girlfriend's father is giving me a vintage amp from the late 70s with speakers. Supposedly it's a ToTL setup from back in the day. I have no other information. I'm interested to see if we struck gold or lead. Should know within the hour. Stay tuned.... .

Yeah, I feel like that too, this all came out in the last day or so. My brother went over to his house to pick it up.

What's interesting is that on Friday I ordered the he-500.

I kinda feel like a have been given a lottery ticket. On the other hand never win anything

120 watts per channel I think. Monster of a receiver. You lucky dog!

Thanks! That's great to hear. I feel like I won the lottery.

He also gave me a pair of Realistic MACH ONE 4O-4024A floor speakers and a Realistic LAB-420 turntable. All beautiful looking with the original 1978 or so owners manual.

Truly at least that good. This guy kept the original extra fuses plus the owner manual looks Like it rolled off the press yesterday. Took huge pride of ownership. His new girlfriend just moved in and said it had to go.

My wife would have to go before I'd give up my Sansui...just sayin'. You should have seen her face when I went to pick up the Sansui and also came back with the Pioneer HPM 100s. She looked a lot like this.> eek.gif  LMAO

 

Hope she doesn't read this. tongue.gif
