OH MattTCG... we're gonna have to have your back one night. The moment you knock on my door in the middle of the night, I'll just gesture you to come in, no questions asked 'cause I'll know already!

I had to read that twice before I was sure what it meant. Yes, I may need to sleep on your couch. Three nights max, I promise.

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.

 

You are in for a pleasant surprise, my friend biggrin.gif

 

See my post in the vintage speaker thread.

Thanks! I just read your post.

 

i turned on the system last night and it was awesome! so much power! I was tired so i wasnt ready to listen critically but i am super impressed already.

 

i did notice there is some static when pressing some of the buttons especially the low pass filter. thinking about bringing it in and the speakers for a "tune up".

Probably needs a treatment of deoxit on the pots and switches.

As Matt said, likely just needs a Deoxit treatment. Google "Deoxit process" or something like that and you'll find the link on Audiokarma on how to do it. Very simple and not intimidating.
