Here is my late night entertainment. 700 watt tube amp to play the vinyl the right way. Jim
Mate is there anything you can't do..
yep fuck them dishes hehe
But I bet you could build a machine...
IRON BUTTERFLY - IN A GADDA DA VIDA perhaps?
how many btu's would that pump out on your tube amp to play? That should heat up your shop some. :lol:
So let's see the speakers that it's drivin' :mrgreen:
I want to see if he could drive a Les Paul. Guitar Buggie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJLjHPz5OnI
one of my favorites. Cheers,
I was just listening to some good vinyl last night on my old turntable (Lxman PD-284, bought in 1980)
Nothing else in my hi-fi has lasted the distance - but I don't have a "tube" amplifier like yours.
Listening to Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Stevie Ray Vaughn etc gets me in the right place for working on the Nortons
Music & smell are the great evocators of better times.
Hope for more good times
I have killed a few amps over time playing my old vinyls, in my yonger days I use to buy a new record every week, sometime 2, a close female friend at the time worked at her family record shop, she listened to all the new albums all the time and put me onto some good music, CDs just not the same as playing vinyl records, my amps that I killed was normaly playing Led Zepplen flat out, my neighbours must have hated me in them days, I notice vinyl are making a big come back here in Aussie land, but they aren't cheap, but thats the way life has become, eveything going up except wages and even harder when retired.
Yep vinyl, at least when it started skipping and you were to pissed to get up you still had some music
I can only dream of what Mr Kossof would sound like through that holding one of his sadly troubled notes
Where's the operating table that elevates up through the roof during thunderstorms? :mrgreen:
Don't give him ideas. :lol:
I just re tubed and went through my old Sansui 1000A for my vinyl listening pleasure. Nothing beats good to sound for music or a guitar amp.
For speakers I use two on each channel
One Carver AL3 plus and one Infinity Quantum 3
There are also a pair of planar loaded horns with ribbon supertweeters in the rafters that I don't have a picture of.
And here is my turntable. Milled from solid glass re-enforced Teflon. It weighs about 80 lbs. It uses Norton valve springs for suspension....
And Mr Kossof sounds excellent.
Love that turn table, but where is the handly bars
At one time I really wanted a Sansui 1000. Great unit. Just never could afford one.
Of course I even drooled more over the 3300. They bring ridiculous prices today. Jim
That all makes my phone thu a car stero to a couple of speakers nailed to the wall seem a bit trival
Nice. I have four tube amps, and the most powerful of them uses Russian cold war tank valves and put out a whopping 10W, though it has ~1000 volts on the plates.
