Just pulled the trigger on a 1988 Technics SL-P550 in mint condition, so while I'm awaiting Mr Postman I thought it would be nice to hear from anyone else who owns/owned a vintage cd player.
It seems they will all become a thing of the past soon, but I'm looking for the classic years from early eighties through the nineties.
Were they better made then? Have the converters improved over the years? Or is it more a case of taste.. I do know that the old Philips TDA1541 chips are still very sought after, and I own an Arcam Black Box with one implemented and it still sounds very capable compared to modern chips. More musical and warm, albeit without the same level of detail.
The older machines certainly look the business! Where have all the buttons gone these days ha!
Anyhow, would love to see pics of any gear you have or have had, with optional views of it.
Heres a pic of my upcoming Technics
