    Re: Modern hostile take over


    I have a vintage Crosley console in my living room sitting beside my vintage Pioneer setup. The Crosley is all original with AM only radio, 78 RPM record player and powered by a mono tube amp. I also have a 1960's Grundig console stereo with every band known to man on it including shortwave, turntable all powered by a tube amp. It has Alnico speakers and Jensen horns. It is absolutely mint without any scratches on it. It sounds wonderful if you are into siting on the floor when you listen to it.

        Curt, that brings back some memories! When I was growing up, my dad built a 16 watt/ch tube amp (from one of their catalogs) that he used with a Garrard (sp) turntable and a pair of speakers built with parts/plans from a local dealer. The dealer, Lafayette Electronics, offered alot of that stuff, and they would even put it together for you, if you wanted.

            Curt, it sounded great! I didn't understand all the control knobs, there were ten across the front. I do remember one that controlled the RIAA curve with 4 positions and the speaker wire hook-ups had 3 sections, one pair for 16 ohms, one for 8, and one pair for 4. The speakers used a slot-vent design (I remember my dad cutting the plywood and assembling everything while I looked at the plans) with a Pioneer PIM-16A 2-way (similar to a coax) 6" driver in each box. I still have both drivers, but the paper cones are dried out a little...expected since they were made in the early 60's. I just wish I had that amp! Here's a pic of the driver...I don't know what I'll ever do with them, but for the early 60's, we had the best "hi-fi" of all my friends and relatives! I guess that's what started "it" all for me.
