Vintage score...

Picked up a Sansui 350a, and a pair of Electro Voice speakers in near mint condition this afternoon, for free! I will post some pictures later, but that little Sansui looks to be a well regarded receiver for its day. Not sure what model the speakers are but they are huge....

Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    It is important for you to identify the EV loudspeakers for... umm... some of us.

    :)

    This may help, if they're old ones:

    If they're kinda old ones, check http://www.alliedcatalogs.com/ (and be patient) :)

    If they're 1970s vintage, check my Warehouse Sound catalog scans:

    EV was all over the map, from the sublime to the ridiculous well, far from sublime. :p

    I will let you know tomorrow. They easily weigh 100 pounds each, and are very large in width and depth. They are not corner loaded like some I have seen. Once I get the back off, I will know what they are.

    sounds promising.

    I've never seen an "A" variant, though, so I dunno about that, sorry!

    Looks like hifiengine does have the "A" manual, though :)

    The Sansui looks fun, after a good cleaning, lube, cap check would be a mod to replace the the spring clips with binding posts :)
