    We haven't come as far in 30 years as we should have: my experience with a NOS pair of AKG K340's

    Regarding the price: Tough to judge really. A new house might have been $30,000 -- a clock radio $49.95. I remember appliances being very expensive, too. I think that electronics are a much better value today than they used to be -- you get a lot more for your money.

    Found my dads old vinyl setup...need some help!

    I'll bet the TT is OK. Maybe a new belt and cartridge is in order. You're not going to get a TT for $500 that will sound much better. The receiver is also nice if it still works well. The speakers probably are the weak link, but if they are still solid, I'l bet they'd be OK with some decent...

    The 100 Greatest Albums from the Golden Age Of Rock (1965-1975) [Includes Poster]

    I have been listening to Tres Hombres on original vinyl -- great recording. This is an album that demonstrates that my K701s can rock with the right recording. Time for a new copy though...some songs have too many scratches. My favorite song on American Beauty is Candyman. Jerry on steel guitar.

    New AKG K601 Owner.

    I have noticed the same type of distortion on my K701's when they are plugged into the headphone jacks of my NAD 302 integrated (around 25 wpc) and my Yamaha reciever (probably 50 wpc). Should be plenty of power.

    Hendrix Albums, which is the best sound quality?

    Hendrix in the West gets my vote. But that's on vinyl...I don't know if there is a good version on iTunes (there isn't, I just checked). How can iTunes have such a limited selection of Hendrix? Only a couple were iTunes Plus. I have Electric Ladyland on vinyl and CD -- neither sound very good.

    So that is why Vinyl was invented....finally understood the hype.

    Most manufacturers use turntables to demonstrate the merits of their equipment at the Consumer Electronics Show. The next one is January for all you digital apologists out there

    AKG 701 newbie help

    My 701's sound very nice using a Yamaha receiver (I think it was about $200) or a NAD 302 integrated.

    What makes me so sad

    Stock tip (if there is a stock market left): Hearing aids - all these people listening to to noise a very high level.

    Better turntable deal: AR-XA($200) or Technics SL-1200mk5($250)(both in great cond.)?

    I had an AR (forgot the model) in the 80's, and a Technics SL Q-2 that I purchased in 1981. The Q2 was a very nice TT, and worked flawlessly, but the base was very resonant. When you cranked it up, the bass would become muddy. I've never heard a Technics 1200, so maybe they’ve resolved that...
