Vintage Audio Appreciation - Page 2

Okay, I've got a couple of new vintage pieces, recently. biggrin.gif


Pioneer SX-1980, I will hook it in with my Onkyo in the HT system so the Pioneer will still be for pure 2 Channel when I need/want it to be. thumb.gif

And my Kenwood KR-9600:

The Pioneer SX-1980 can pump out 270 Watts per channel, RMS, 20Hz ~ 20kHz at 0.03% THD

The Kenwood KR-9600 is 160WPC RMS, 20Hz ~ 20kHz, 0.08% THD

JELLY, I love vintage high end aluminum faced receivers. Awesome sound, easy to use and they're built like tanks.

Man, once I get some spare cash I'm going to go on the hunt for units like these at garage sales/thrift stores etc.
Where do you get yours?


I just recently got a H/K 330C Amp/Receiver, Technics SB4500A, and a Sony record player which I see no model number on. I actually like the sound that my NAD 7130 produces better than the 330C, so I'm using that still. I'll probably use the 330C in the garage, been needing a unit out there smile.gif

Sadly one of the tweeters seems to be dead on the SB4500A...which is weird because there is a "fuse" of sorts on the back that says "Reset Tweeter and Reset Woofer" and I'm not sure how it would be dead if that is in place. I know it's not wiring, because I plugged the other working tweeter into the "dead" side and it works fine. "Dead" tweeter doesn't work on either side. Doesn't appear physically damaged either.

Sounds like a blown voice coil. If you have a voltometer set it to measure amperage and touch it to the tweeter terminals, if it reads zero it's definitely blown.

They're fixable, but it's usually a huge PITA.

I've got my gear from variety of places, a couple of pieces from members at an audio community site I go to, and some from a friend, some on ebay.

The tweeter may be dead because of clipping.

So i gave the JBL's a little love. I see a lot of vintage JBL's with red grills a little darker but i felt the brighter red matched the wood better.
