So I went to the Hi Fi store today
I had not been to the Speaker Shop in Amherst Ny in quite a while. Like maybe 20 years. I’m not really sure. I found myself driving by today so I took a few minutes to have a look. They even invited me upstairs to look around in the ultra high end area. Downstairs in … Read More

Building A basement Home Theater
This has been a multi year process for me. We let our basement get REALLY bad. It was piled up with junk and partially torn apart to expose the heat ducts and pipes for service… This is what it looked like before I started the theater. We had some plans for finishing it so … Read More

Pouring a stamped concrete front porch
We had this horrible front porch when we moved in. It looked home made, the concrete was all broken and flaking, the bricks were all uneven and busted. It had to go. So the contractor started busting it out. After it was ripped out they built a retaining wall (you can see it in … Read More
1982 Tech HiFi Catalog
Here are some of the pages of the 1982 Tech HiFi catalog. They did a great job of showing their products being used and offering something at every price point. I just about wore this catalog out in 1982. (These pages are being shared under Fair Use and we do not own the information … Read More
Stainless Steel Fire Pit Cooking Grate
I just added this stainless steel cooking grate to my fire pit install over the weekend. It was custom made by my cousin who is a welder. I was just going to set it on the block but he hooked me up with an adjustable height system. It works “GRATE”!
Build A retaining wall
This is not my handi work. A few years back we had our front porch redone with stamped concrete and the contractor suggested a decorative wall and post. In our case it was not really retaining anything. Just more of a divider. We said sure and here is how it came out. … Read More

Refoaming My Infinity woofers
This was a refoam job I did on my Infinity Kappa 6. I would guess they were about 20 years old at the time. I had not used the speakers in a while and they were in the basement. I was mortified when I first saw them. These were the only tools needed after getting … Read More
Tannoy Reveal 6D -4 photos
Not sure these count as vintage but they are great speakers. I have these hooked up to my computer in my office. Have had them about 10 years now. They sound terrific. My only complaint is the switch on the front to shut them off is very cheesy feeling.
Realistic STA-7 System 7 reciever
I had wanted one of these set ups REALLY bad as a kid. Stumbled on it at the thrift shop not long ago. Works pretty well but the left channel seems to be out. So I am running 2 speakers from the right.
Klipsch Outdoor Speakers
Got these a few years ago. had them outside for a while, then we resided the house and have not hung them back up yet. I was not super happy with the sound from these. Have to give them another try.
Basement Sound System Photos
This was my basement set up while in High School. A friend and I had a mobile DJ system and we set up this “home radio station” set up in the basement. Lots of hours of fun down there.

Vintage Klipsch KG2
I got these Klipsch KG2’s sometime in the late 80’s – early 90’s. They were perfect. Just the right size, they pack an incredible punch. Really enjoyed them greatly. But I just had too many speakers and something had to go. I sold them about 10 years ago now. Miss them often.
