    Ken, you have made it quite clear that you think that I am a more on. I take no offense as I admire your uncanny penchant to surmise the obvious. Bravo my good man!

    Jesus H. C H R I S T - Afterburner - can you ever be courteous and stay on topic. If you want to blather on about "Family Affair" start your own dam thread! I get tired of your inane comments. You're not clever and you're not funny and most time you're posts are completely irrelevant to the topic.

  • Can't think of why they wouldn't. If you get some w/ the peerless tweeter you might not even want to go the upgrade route to the Polk RDO replacements.
    They are wide. Space may be an issue. 7's are good all-rounders.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    I would love to have one of those spectrum analyzers in blue with stereo 32 bands in blue LED. I used to love watching them dance to the music as a teen.

I was able to barter off old gear and with some cash I have reached a pretty good point thus far. I would also like to say that anyone on the fence about jumping into the reel to reel game, do it the sound is fantastic, well to me anyway. I hope you all enjoy the pictures.

    Re: R2R, do you buy old tapes for that sort of thing, or make your own?

    How's the fidelity? I have zero experience. Didn't people used to buy records, record them to tape and then put the records away, listening only to the tape copy?

    Oh, do you need another expensive rabbit hole?
    The fidelity can be superb -- remember for a long, long (long) time, virtually all all records were mastered from tapes.

  • EndersShadow I wish I did , it took forever to locate the one I have. Those kits you linked me to are pretty cool, I have also seen bigger models on ebay that the girls would really be able to jam out too. Post a picture of whatever you grab in action, please.
  • Todd did your dad get his RTR? Buying new pre recorded tape is not a option for me, half the fun of owning a RTR for me is making my own tape mix or putting complete albums on tape its a good time and I enjoy the sound it reproduces over a cd.
  • Msg do you have anyone near you with a RTR ? If so go give it a listen I don't think you will be disappointed in the sq.

  • I just picked up 15 7inch reels for 20.00, sony, scotch, radio shack, audio tape, and one branded irish. I am going to give them all a spin tomorrow and see whats been recorded onto them, one was recorded in 1963.
  • Thanks again for all the kind comments on my system.
  • Msg, people sure did record there LPs to tape to preserve and protect the records, I have new and used records that I have already put on tape.

    Nah man, I don't know anyone locally with one. My parents had one when we were really young, but something went wrong with it and I can only remember seeing it used a couple of times. I'm a bit intrigued, though. I like these analog media formats that involve a bit of ritual. I'm also just realizing as I write that people probably enjoy the benefit of recording records to tape because they didn't have to mess with cleaning the records all the time!

    I'm going to see if my Dad still has any of the old tapes around. Doubt it, though.
    Just remembered using his 8-tracks for building blocks when I was around 4 or so... Made good garages for my diecast cars.

    I had a R2R up to the mid 70s, a Sony. I agree it sounded it great, but sucked even worse than a turn table for randomly selecting a song. Even with tapes of "favorite songs" I would want to skip and select, and get P.O.ed how hard it was to get to a song start. LOL

    A few years ago I looked around for a RTR, I wanted to do a complete vintage system and already had a couple of Pioneer and Marantz amps and receivers, but, the cost kind of kept me away. That, and the thought that I don't know the first thing about them as far as repairs are concerned. I like your set up and it's got me thinking again.
