Just finished putting my vintage Hi-Fi System together in the mancave! Loving the sounds of a true vintage system.

I love that old Marantz gear and the reel to reel looks great too: I used to have an old valve Sony reel to reel my Mum gave me as a kid; it sounded great just plugging my guitar into it and cranking the record level up to overdrive it. :)

I dug my Dad's old turntable out of the loft yesterday. It hasn't been used in 35+ years and was a bit grubby after being in our loft for about 20 years. I cleaned it up a bit and managed to get it playing; the belt slips a bit when it's trying to lift the tone arm at the end of the record, but otherwise plays fine, so I ordered a £4 belt off eBay. I'll give it a better clean up and see if I can polish the plastic lid a bit.

Really good to play some of our old records that I've not heard in a long time. :) Using a positively modern Denon AVR to test it as it's the only amp I've got with a phono input, but I might see if I can find a used older amp to go with it.

Not really 'vintage' as such, but it was part of a 'stack' system we had new in about 1978.

I cleaned it up a bit more after this test, but it's purely cosmetic as all the mechanicals seem fine and I gave them a bit of a cleanup and re-greased some of the mechanisms:

My uncle sailed into Long Beach on a slow boat from Vietnam with three Sansui 2000x's (and 3 pairs of cabinets to boot), so I inherited one of those when my folks upgraded in the 90s. I had that thing for ages.
