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

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

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.
TDK Tapes by the case
I literally used to buy these by the case.

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.
Advent 3 Acoustic Suspension Loudspeaker System
Technics Linear Phase Speaker System
I picked these up at a garage sale for $35. They were in pretty good shape. I didn’t keep them. Have too many sets of speakers already. : )
Infinity Kappa 6 Speakers
These were the first pair of speakers I ever bought new. I think it was about 1992 or so when I got them. I was working for a large stereo store so I was able to get them at just about cost. I seem to recall they retailed for $699 each. I re foamed them … Read More
Technics SL-10 Direct Drive Linear Tracking Turntable
I LOVED this turntable. My dad bought it for me when I was about 14 or 15 years old for $250. It was used from a serviceman who had purchased it from the PX in Germany. It was Very highly regarded and would play standing up or on it side, even upside down. I had … Read More
