BUT someone on a certain site (if you know how to obtain it) uploaded a truly wonderful MFSL vinyl of it, it's just incredible! he also uploaded the Division Bell 24/192 there is absolutely no surface noise that I could here and it was so clear it's as if PF had released an audiophile version just for us audiophiles it was so INCREDIBLE. He used a $3,400 ADC for friggen sakes on The Division Bell LP! 

Meddle I actually done have. Are you collecting them or do you sell them?

Every time I see Doug, he has new inventory. Seems it turns a lot but that Kenwood pair I took that photo for you is still there. Had a great 1971 pair of Akai solid wood speakers too......and a couple of new reel to reels.

Yep, vintage porn.

Thanks a million Silent!

 

I'm in the middle of relocating out of town - have not found a place to stay. And paying storage costs isn't in the budget. However, what I am considering - it just "hit" me - is perhaps, buy them and loan them out to a local head-fier or two for a few months. wink_face.gif That'd solve everything.

I'm in a similar spot with a pair of vintage JBL 4311's. I'll be moving in a few months and I have too much already, but ohhhh man they are calling to me.

I collect them. I have got them all except Piper at The Gates of Dawn, however I do have a mint 'A Nice Pair' that includes that album and A Saucerful of Secrets. I was so excited to find The Division Bell one day at my local Record Store for $80, it was a Brazilian copy.. I found an unopened copy of The Division Bell at Hot Poop Record Store in Walla Walla, WA but it was $200! rich kids college and damn hipsters! an below average copy of 'The Wall' and 'Meddle' was $90 there! a day before I got a NM 'The Wall' on vinyl at Adventures Underground in Richland, WA for $21 no tax! you have to go to record stores where there are NO HIPSTERS. Hipsters ruin everything.

Yeah I saw that Kenwood KA-7100 when I picked up my HK 670 the next day. I hope he puts out that GORGEOUS Marantz 4300 he was working on there! Did you see that sexy Pioneer receiver he's got there in the middle of the store next to the counter? people bring their stuff there and if they don't pick them up he sells them. Here's to hoping that 4300 does not get picked up B-)

@ PhoenixG

 

I think sending them on loan will work for us brilliantly! Well wink_face.gif with the right home audio luvr.

So I spotted a Marantz 2015 on craigslist for $65 and assuming he still has it, I'll be bringing the following to test out the thing, will this be okay or is there anything else that I should take along?
K240 Sextetts & Takstar HI-2050
Sansa Fuze with a 3.5 -> RCA cable
He should have a pair of speakers to test it out in the speaker out department as well.

One more question about the Maranz, is there any way to use either the HP out or Speaker out separately? I want to use both my speakers and headphones for it, but only want to use one at a time.

Hotel side with the mobile hook-up! iPod>Sansui G-22000>HD650. 

 

DSLR pix to follow soon, pc usb driver difficulties. iPhone pix for now...

 

Also, Line-Out to RCA Din connector is packed away; Headphone Out > RCA > AUX IN has a bit lower resolution.

Just unplug your headphones when you want to use speakers. There'll be a 'speaker off' option as well for when you only want to use headphones.

Thanks. As far as I can tell, she's doing whatever it is 'Miss Sansui' does when wearing the crown out in public...rolleyes.gif looking pretty. Currently, limited by the iPod and I'm really anxious to put it through its paces, properly so. Like the final instrumental break in Donald Fagen's "New Frontier" @ with 1:55 minutes remaining, cranked! I use to really move air inside the D7000 wooden cups when mated to the SX-D7000!!! ksc75smile.gif
