Not REALLY vintage, since they are younger than I am...
Compact disc players: Revox B226 from 1985, and B226 'black' from 1987. Pretty much identical inside except for trim and colour scheme.
Both use a Philips CDM-1 mechanism & optics, and a TDA1541 16bit 4x DAC.
They will play CDR, but not CDRW.
And CD-ROM - they were intended to also be used as "computer peripherals" and have SPDIF out and serial data I/O ports.

How old should hifi components be to be regarded as vintage  :thinking:
In a maximum bank turn in a normal category airplane, like a typical Cessna, everything is fine until you turn across your own wake

Anything younger than me is still fairly modern... ;)

This is considered as being nearly vintage:



1932 or thereabouts.

Yep, Sansui used two different sets of knobs for this model. My other AU-111 amps also use the ali knobs.

I'm trying to make out what that is next to your on/off switch?

Do you know how many Sansui AU111 (working condition) in South Africa?

1)I own 1 myself,
2) you have 2
3)Henry (Mr. Valve) has own 2
4) Thomas has 1

Any AV forums member has own Sansui AU111 please show here and comment here.

I like my AU111 special on the bass is stronger but not too tight and hard, you never felt bright sound and too sharp and then had drive with the AR3a and Maggie 1.6 easily without any problem, prefect match to drive with JBL 4 serious.
