Calling All "Vintage" Speaker Owners - Page 10

post #136 of 1258
Just to be clear, only "The Tape Project" tapes are $500 per title. Normal vintage pre recorded reel tapes range widely from a few dollars to maybe a hundred dollars for the most desireable titles. I've only bought a couple dozen of these, mostly for $10-20 each.

My Teac X-10R was bought freshly serviced for $400. Not so bad.

I paid $75 for my Teac A-3300SX 2TR that does 15 ips.  Had to spend about $150 to get it running right.  Now, if I only had some high quality 15 ips recordings.........

It's hard to find 15 ips tapes but not impossible..dig around your local used vinyl shops, ask around ...

Oh this:

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/Polk-Audio-Monitor-model-10-speakers-/260827071050?pt=Speakers_Subwoofers&hash=item3cba81424a#ht_1279wt_1396

There is that $80 shipping. These are getting like $150/pair which sounds reasonable considering they are SO OLD and they were $370/pair in the 70s.

$70 shipping for me, but they do have the stands, your's dont (i assume). I wouldn't pay more than $100, at at that id be think about it.

Yes 80's, and FYI their is a paperclip and you can edit your previous post, so it doesnt look like your intentionally getting your post count up.

Never noticed that, thanks!

i forgot about this thread. well only vintage speakers i have still operating is a pair of late 70's pioneer cs-77a speakers. they sounded pretty bad untill i just got done stuffing them today and man do they sound pretty **** good now. i was gonna sell these at first but i think i'm gonna keep them now. stuffing them made the biggest noticeable difference and the vibrations(resonances) is gone down to the deepest bass notes of 40hz(as far as they can extend to the most) , all i used was just some polyfill from some extra pillows and stuffed toys around the house. works wonders for acoustic suspension cabs(especially subwoofers) and it's very cheap to grab or can even find in your house. this stuff can absorb vibrations down to 20hz pretty **** well. thing is,it doesn't itch like fiberglass does. and safe around animals and people.

Rob, I wouldn't try it.  HPM-100s are in a different class of Pioneer speakers than the CS line.
