Calling All "Vintage" Speaker Owners - Page 31

post #451 of 1257

 

Instead of showing you a photo of my system, here's a recording of it playing vinyl (Albiet a very shaky one)

 

Goodmans Axiom 201 in bass reflex cabs

Almarro 318B

Technics 1210MK5G + Nagaoka MP150

Jolida JD9

 

I was running a pair of Fostex 206Es in ML TL cabs and while they sound slightly faster (read: Clinical), these Axioms are the bomb man...vocals are surreal.

Finest kind,

If all the drivers are working and original then that is a great price.  I have a set of the W90s and they have a lovely midrange.  More of a Classical, Jazz, Opera type of speaker.  But, some love them, some hate them.  I enjoy the W90s, full and soft sounding!  Excellent napping speakers and they do look lovely!  I over kill mine with my Pioneer receiver, need to get my tube receiver recapped one of these days...

 

There is potential resale, but it's for a particular buyer.  So, location pending you can ask for quite of bit of coin.

Wow! Very nice... i like the speakers, and you should just turn the lights off and sleep with them tubes that beautiful. Do you have alot of vinyl?

Cifani, i used to buy vinyl on a regular basis but i have been cutting down on costs..

 

I probably have a 150++ with most of them being Jazz..

 

The tubes run extremely hot! Seeing that i live in the tropics i don't think i would want to run them all night....haha.

Very nice. What kind of stands are those?

post #457 of 1257

I got them off a local forum for 20 bucks....no idea what stands they are!

 

The previous owner used it for vintage Tannoys apparently.

Very nice setup!

Hello all! I have been on the hunt for a nice pair of vintage speakers since I picked up my 2265b. I was pointed over here from the vintage receiver thread. I read through, found what people were really digging, and got to looking. I found a pair of Pioneer HPM-100s on my local craigslist, and I'll be picking them up this weekend or next. Can't wait! Thanks for all the input everyone!

 

Here's a picture from the ad:

Quad ESL 57's Mine are from somewhere around the early 70ies I believe.

Cool! Let us know what you think.

Definitely will. I got a line on an SX-1250 too. I might have a pretty nice combo then. Not the Marantz is anything to shake a stick at.

I'm headed to Lowe's this afternoon to buy a 2x12. I plan to build a box for these to sit on. I'll get some more pictures posted when I get the speakers settled in.
