  • Those of you old enough, remember when Sunoco pumps had the dial where you selected the octane. Remember 260, I think it was 100 octane. I purchased my fair share of it.

    Ran across this old ad.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    Political memes posted as fact and accepted as fact, are sign language of the ignorant, for the ignorant

    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'm sure you know that this is the reason why there are no jokes about the Jonestown Massacre.

    The punch line was too long.

    LRE KT-630, complete with the popular murine urine chassis accents, it appears.
    Sounds good, though.

    It's kinda sixties, isn't it?
    I bought it one the strength of its appearance (from the front -- it does have a nice
    cover, too) and the price. I assumed it was pp EL84 ...

    Nothin' wrong with 6BM8 amps (the Japanese audiophiles love the 6BM8) -- but the danged tubes aren't in modern production and they're too darned 'spensive. A matched quad of new ones would cost far more than did the amplifier.

    Fortunately the quad in there, battered as they appear, still sound OK. No redplates, either, I am pleased to report.

    There's a female a cappella group from Radcliffe College (Harvard) called the Radcliffe Pitches. :)

    https://www.pitches.org/

    We saw 'em in Bermuda one year when we were there on our erstwhile annual MA February School Winter Break visits to Bermuda.
    As an aside -- we really like Bermuda. :)
