I've been away for a week and tring to catch-up on whats been going on (can't find a thread on secret mailing list) But i've been reading up on

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/showth...=&threadid=2223

Everyone had valid points some i agreed with some i didn't. So it got me wondering what sort of Hi Fi Equipment everyone uses to base their opions on. So I tought I'd get a discusion going on equipment.
I myself collect and restore what I call clasic (1967 - 1980) equipment. Back when a Stereo was a Stereo.
My main system is
Receiver: Marantz 2600. 300 watts @ 8ohms 20Hz - >20KHz THD 0.05% at 300 watts. Capacitors the size of 12oz beer cans. I could go on and on forever about this unit. Never really got into amp/preamp
Turntable: Technics SL1600.......
CD Changer: Pioneer PD-F905 - Nothing spectacular
Speakers: Marantz Imperial 9. 2-10" woofers 4 Midrange drivers 2 Tweeter drivers
20Hz - >20KHz SPL 100 db....I could go on forever over these also.

So...just wondering what everyone else is using.

BTW Fewtch The reason for my wanting to put my Lps on hard drive I've some irreplacable Music on those Lps

BTW so everyone knows where i'm coming from I grew up in the sixty's When we imearsed are self in our music. ( Sometimes with a little help )

fewtch I certainly can understand your situtation with the condo. However you sound like someone who could get into classic equipment. I'm telling you the secret that i've known about these systems Is getting out and someday you won't be able to afford one. The system I've been after for awile is now out of my present price range. (Sansui G33000). Check out the specs. This unit is over 100lbs
(Pioneer SX1980) Check out the specs. Start out with something small (EBAY)
IMHO Sansui G series 8000 9000 8700 9700
Sansui 7070 8080 9090
Marantz model 2270 and above
Pioneer SX1050 and above.
Get them while you can. You won't regret it
BTW the Technics SL1600 was part of my original system I bought it new in 1976.
