    Jimi Hendrix and turntable. Anyone identify the turntable brand?
    Garrard ?


    Yup. A 301 or 401. I think it's a 401, based on the BIG stobe markings on the BIG platter.
    (edit: and the rectilinear look of its chassis)

    (borrowed image, of course. The one here has a SME - I think! - arm; not sure 'bout Jimi's)

    Here's a photo of Stefan Kudelski inventor of the Nagra tape recorders

    Looks like a Tek scope (or two) and a coupla HP meters behind him.
    Cool image; I've never seen a photo of him before (although I am still a bit more disposed towards Stellavox than Nagra, had I, indeed, the income so to dispose!).

    When these needed repair, would they send a plumber or an HVAC tech?

    Big commercial conglomerates were "in" for a while. For example, LTV (Ling-Temco-Vought), better known for military-industrial complex stuff, owned Altec for a spell. :|

    ... and then there was Fairchild. Fairchild made... most everything at one point or another, including (among other things) top-flight semiconductors, aircraft, and some of the finest music reproduction equipment ever made.

    EDIT: Oh, I presume youse guyses all know this, but Roberts was the importer/reseller of AKAI components (most notably tape decks) for a while -- back in the days when most if not all Japanese brands were handled by third parties in the US (e.g., Sony Superscope, at least their tape recording products).

    Beautiful Kenworth conventional.

    Not bad, I sold Pete's for awhile in the mid to late 90's. Needless to say I prefer them.

    Only because you liked to say you had a new peterbilt....

    😉

    You do realized there was a bumper sticker that said that. I saw two old truck salesman in their Caddy with that bumper sticker driving thru a lot full of trucks many years ago. It was the first time I had seen that bumper sticker.

    It said " Old truckers never die, they just get a new Peterbilt."

    Great trucks. Pete's have narrow cabs. I'm on the thick side & prefer wider cabs. I've had Freightliners, Western Star, Macks, Volvos. Their all good trucks. Years back I used a Mack Superliner with a 500 in it & it had 2 shifters & had to put arm thru the steering wheel to shift it. Wouldn't that thing pull a hill. Back in the 80's my Mack 350 Cummings you'd see a hill & it was like you threw a anchor out. 60mph to 40 if you were lucky. Don't miss that truck. I am semi-retired now & don't miss the racquet one bit.

    My father was in the truck business for 30 years. He sold Whites (Freightliners) and Macks. I still have the Mack chrome bulldog ashtray he had. Don't if you had ever seen one.

    At one time he was Used Truck Manager at White Trucks (later Freightliner) in Dallas. I got a little bonus because of this. My first car was a 57 Chevy 2dr with a pink accent color. Needless to say I didn't like the color, but I knew I would get it painted when I bought it for $700.00.

    He sent it to a local body shop a lot of business so they painted my 57 for free with nine coats of Maroon lacquer and the local interior shop put a rolled and pleated interior in my car for the costs of materials. The cost on the interior was $45.00 in 1967.

    Just goes to show how far the value of the dollar has dropped since then.

    Here's a photo of six Ampex 351-2 decks being used to duplicate tapes at a radio station.

    The HH Scotts on the bottom flanking sides (with Philips dome tweeters) actually ain't half bad, nor (?!?!) are the Radio Shack "Nova 10"s sitting atop them. The Nova 10 has a PR and those fetching white-coned woofers (JBL wannabes) and those audiophile cone tweeters with the metal dustcaps (to improve dispersion and HF response!).

    Yes, I am jealous - of that large open space where a proper HiFi system could be set up. Would love to have that much room to set up my system in.

    That blue Panasonic (one like it) there was my first cassette player.
    I played the wheels off it.

    My mother's cousin was a top mechanic for White/Freightliner in Omaha all his life. They flew him to other places to make repairs that others could not. He probably retired in the late 1980's.

    I'm pretty sure the guy on the sofa is Randy Newman. Can't place the girl. It's not Olivia Newton-John. It looks more like Susan Anton?

    Probably toddlers. Even today's teenager's can (hopefully) operate a Phillips screwdriver. When parents were gone, it would be unscrewed. The wife could have put the screws in too ya know. :)

    No one should do that to even a cheap piece of gear. But we see it all.

    I believe that's Hal Blaine at the drums and Carol Kaye on bass.

    You are giving them way to much credit. If it's a virtual screwdriver perhaps.
