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.

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

This is considered as being nearly vintage:

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?

Title: Re: Vintage Audio Kit - Members' Pics
Post by: win555 on July 15, 2014, 11:15:45 PM
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.

Bean counters took over the running of the Company. Apparently they believed it was more profitable to make a lot of rubbish instead of fewer high-quality units.

Not just Sansui. What happened to JVC, Teac, Phillips, Akai, Dynaco, Aiwa. I think people lost the plot when they focussed more on cutting costs by replacing metal with plastic and selling quantity instead of quality.

A lot of the very high end flagship products sold at a loss, due to special materials and processes required to build them. Somewhere in between that and entry-level was the 1978 kit you posted. Something had to give. Besides, those were the days of "Jap Cr@p", a malicious propaganda spread to discredit Japanese industry.

Those little guys from the land of the rising sun knew what they were doing with audio products. I do not mind paying for what I get but today you are not paying an equivalent for the components you are getting inside. Only a 6th of the price is components. The rest is salaries, marketing, ect.. Why didn't they go the nad 3020 or pioneer A400 route? Is it because they lost their passion and everything became just about the money?

Sansui, Telefunken, Nakamichi are slightly different. Sony & Philips for example are still operating companies with an interest in their reputation.
The others ceased entirely to exist as manufacturers, only the brand name was traded.

Thank you kindly Atjan. It is hard to find complete vintage sets these days and when you do the price tag matches  the Quality of these marvellous components. I have so many incomplete systems. You buy a tuner here a tapedeck there. Most of the stuff I buy comes with an extra shipping pricetag. I want to start rackmounting my stuff.

Can 1992 be classed as 'vintage' ?
Since it is an out-of-production format, maybe:

Thanks alot for your Kind comments..

I could not get a decent set of Old skool hifi speakers so I went out and bought a brand new set of Wharfedale Diamonds in black.
Looks lovely, sounds awesome  :)

Also was looking for a decent Equalizer in silver.
I could not find a decent Equalizer locally that would match the silver look of the rest of the Gear, so I bought a Silver Technics on ebay. Should arrive anytime soon, cant wait.....

You should have asked in the Wanted section, theres a nice Pioneer equalizer in Bloem which would look great with your system.

They have two actually:

Thanks, but I've already collected the Technics.
Will post a pic soon. I actually wanted something with the Spectrum, the Pioneer SG50 would have been perfect as it was period specific (early 80's) but that was extremely difficult to find. My next option was Technics.
It has arrived and I will post a new pic soon with everything setup.  :)

Some McIntosh porn I owned when I lived in the USofA for three years - unfortunatey I sold it all before returning to sunny SA - it was all 110V and I was reluctant to ship owing to the weight and delicacy of the units!

These XR7 speakers were (are) extremely rare monsters. especially complete with the Mc Equaliser unit sitting on top of one of them.

All items were in mint condition and I collected all the user/service manuals for them, and bought brand new shipping boxes from McIntosh Labs @ $200 a shot to complete the units before selling!

Took the unit home and out of the stand and gave it a good clean

(http://s25.postimg.org/8bwww29db/IMG_20150215_00061.jpg)

Tossed the old speakers and connected some Aiwa SX-D1'S

(http://s25.postimg.org/gvgatthpr/IMG_20150215_00066.jpg)

Tossed the old stand and used a self fabricated stand

Looks like a nice retro setup now

(http://s25.postimg.org/5dzy2d1pr/IMG_20150215_00016.jpg)

I have seen these units before and never really liked
the look but it is starting to grow on me.

Listening impressions- WhaT I like about the turntable is
the cart is not very revealing as some of my better units
so I put on the first record I could find in the house which
was very dirty but yet no clicks or pops.

Despite the volume pot that needs replacement as it works
the wrong way round(when you turn the volume down the sound levels go up)
the unit has the typical Sansui sound with nice bass.
The Aiwa's compliment this unit well.

Man I just hate when that happens. Was so exited Tuesday evening. Bought two beautiful Technics amps. The guy assures me he doesn't have speakers to demo them for me but he knows they work. Come home switch them on. Units come on but no sound.

I will never trust a guy in a wheelchair again.

@ JadedGem, that Pioneer kx440 brings back a lot of memories. My old man bought that system with turntable and bookshelf speakers in 1969-1970. I enjoyed that same system through my teens in the eighties, adding only a pioneer tape deck. Super fun and boy did that little system sing.

I thought the color change to black and white would go nice with the whole vintage thing. I will post some color pics now. It was one of a very few plug and play and everything worked perfectly units.

I even got the original owners manual and printed schematic with this unit. Even the manual for the cs-33 speakers that came with. I love the black face more than the silver ones and the wood chassis cover instead of metal. The thing is what I like about vintage systems is you do not need a lot of watts as the speakers are so efficient you give them 10 watts and you get beautiful sound. Also I find when listening to vinyl that full range and even 2 way sounds better to me than 3 way imo. All that was missing from this unit was the pl-12 tt but luckily I have 3 of those. The guy gave me a super awesome JVC turntable with though and I really am not complaining about that.

I love working on these vintage units. There is just something
abouth them that keeps me hooked.

First  took her clothes off. Some ugly scratches on the veneer

(http://s25.postimg.org/o7kjzdz3j/image.jpg)

(http://s25.postimg.org/41h20i3fz/image.jpg)

Sanded the scratches out and gave her some oil

(http://s25.postimg.org/vq3p80qgf/image.jpg)

Now it was the faceplate's turn

(http://s25.postimg.org/nlvl3a41b/image.jpg)

(http://s25.postimg.org/es4om6h2n/image.jpg)

The unit was pretty much dust free on the inside so
I just lubricated all the pots and scrubbed the
faceplate and put everything back together

(http://s25.postimg.org/b9sopsg6n/image.jpg)

Even if I have to say so myself this one turned out
really beautiful

Hi Robert

I have used numerous electrical contact cleaners on pots. Like any other topic on this forum there is always lots of opinions. Some say spanjaard is to rough on the pots other's say don't use wd40. I have used them all with no ill-effect. The one I am using at the moment is from Hershell. Just go to your nearest Builders and ask for Hershell contact cleaner. But just make sure its a contact cleaner for cleaning electrical switches. Don't buy silicon spray.

Wow - those bring back memories!! Which are those - 303? Or 505? If memory serves my late father had the 707 - legendary component rack systems sold with stand the works! I still have the turntable (P-D30). Dad's had black faceplates though. The volume control was a vertical slide though, complete PITA as it needed contact cleaner regularly!

My late uncle had the Sansui A-77 & B-77 pre & power. Lit up like a christmas tree when being played. If anyone knows where I can source same I'd be very keen to purchase! Together with matching graphic equaliser, double tape deck etc. I also have his turntable (FR-D35) but it is poked :(. Strange how only the turntables are still around!

Trompie just look at an earlier post on this thread I posted a black faceplate one with graphic equalizer and stand.

I own 2 x FR-D25 and 1 8 FR-D3. Very nice tables. Out of my 6 Sansui turntables I like the D3 the most.

Thanks - found it! Looks like a 505 set excluding the equaliser - which my late father also had - the RG-707! Spent many a misspent youthful afternoon annoying the neighbours with that - it had a reverb and echo function as well iirc.

Also found the one with the turntables on the radiogram!  :envy:

I actually sold the black unit to one of the guys of the Bloem Vinyl club and he is very happy with it. I like those equalizers. The black unit had two. When I get home Friday I will find some pics and post them. I also saw the reverb function and the inputs for guitar and it has this rainbow lcd type retro dispaly I liked.

This silver one will stay with me for a while though. Those turntables that came with those are good but not great. To me nice workhorses to save your more prized carts and styli.

The amps do well for the 30 watts they are worth. They drive either bookshelves or floorstanders with ease. I drove a pair of maurdant short bookshelves and then a pair of aiwa's to nice levels.

The silver unit came with original speakers so I will restore those as they need new surrounds.

I have 5 of those rodiograms I think. They make nice stands haha. I must actually just restore that one. But time is my problem. So many projects so little time.

My faded memories are being jogged, creating some nostalgia I must admit!

My Dad had the RG-7, whilst my Uncle had the RG-707 equalisers. Had hours of fun as a teenager mixing tapes on the double tape decks - tape to tape & LP to tape, that RG-707 was amazing, fade in & fade out too iirc. :)

That system looks good, again, invoking some nostalgia!

I'm certain part of the reasons for purchasing/wanting to purchase these vintage components relates to a rememberance of "the good old days" - perceptually at least! :)

Love the laser disc player, a colleague's father had one where I first started working, spent many an evening there watching movies!

Indeed Jacques - cleaned her up today and much better looking now.  Yes, the belt seems like a problem to source but if OK with you I can drop the table off at your place on Wednesday evening when I come through to Tango class. Hahaha, yes, I'm the guy who dropped off the Technics SL-B303 week before last.

Cheers

Picked up this beauty from my local Cash Converters this afternoon.  Really blown away by the sound - even if it's just 20 W/ch.  Sounds way better than my NAD T763 which is around 130 W/ch in stereo mode.

Hi basil959, could you give us some more info on how you did the LEDs? I have 3 old NAD CD players which still use globes in their displays......14v if I remember correctly (must check still) and would like to install LEDs.
I must add.....that Yamaha looks superb :)

Can't recall exactly, but probably 6.3v globes, 200mA or so. Don't go to bright, not necessary. Mantech should have something suitable.

Why not just go to LEDs? Or is the point to keep it closer to original?
Title: Re: Vintage Audio Kit - Members' Pics
Post by: Family_Dog on July 30, 2015, 06:56:12 AM
LEDs still give a clinical look, one needs to play around with small warm white LEDs to match it as close as possible to the original colour.

Thanks, an electronic engineer at my office gave me a hand (no longer works here).. unfortunately I have no idea how to do it myself.. I know he used surface mount LED's to get to the correct diffusion ... maybe look for a retrofit kit on ebay..?

I should have two 16mm projectors (ex video shop rental) and one 8mm Kodak projector if you're interested. No charge.

Don't know their condition though, and should have a couple of 16mm reels of film as well.

One of the best sounding solid state amplifiers I have ever heard. I actually opened it up saw 1 leaky cap so a recap is on the cards.

Hi there.

I'm new to the forum and I'm glad to see there is people that also appriciate vintage audio like I do.

I'm new to the sound game, recently bought a Sony DA5400ES 7.1 Amp with a set of B&W DM602 S3 towers,LCR60 S3 center and DM600 S3 bookshelfs. Great sound!

But, I grew up with this vintage Pioneer setup and got it out of storage from my dad. I even found the original cabinet for it, my ouma is using it for a TV stand. That is the only thing I still need to go collect.

So, here is the set as I got it. I have already restored the Amp and 2x equalisers. My friend(ghostinthemachine) is currently restoring the vinyl, tuner and timer. Then I have to do the speakers.

There is also some old AM Radio, got no info on it.

Here is some of the model numbers.

Tape deck JVC TD-W253
Amp SA-720
Speakers CS-629
Equaliser 1 - SG-300
Equaliser 2 - SG-540
Timer DT-510
Vinyl 1 - PL 720
Vinyl 2 - PL320
Tuner - TX-720

I really just need the original tape deck, I could not find it.

I'm busy renovating my house so I have no space to fit any of my sound systems properly, but all in due time. I will send new pics of the whole system fully restored. :cool:

Got one of these too, packed in its original cardboard box. Not sure if mine has the white plinth stand though or not, been a while since I looked at it. This was an option at the time. Still a good-looking turntable and much netter than many of the similarly-priced opposition gear at the time.

Won't sound that good - the unit was often fitted with a Ronette 105 (and 106) Stereo Ceramic cartridge, never heard of any of these working with a MM cartridge. Yet the Ronette was one of the better cartridges of its time, fairly low output and reasonably high-compliance as well.

@ JadedGem, that Pioneer kx440 brings back a lot of memories. My old man bought that system with turntable and bookshelf speakers in 1969-1970. I enjoyed that same system through my teens in the eighties, adding only a pioneer tape deck. Super fun and boy did that little system sing.

+1 Same here. I used the KX-440 with PL-12 TT at varsity, and managed to crack a window in one room (a double room to boot). And I still have the KX-440. One channel is dead now, but I still have it. Not sure what to do with it, though.

Thanks Anarchy - I just love the solid engineering of ye olde vintage gear! I really wish I could showcase all at once in a suitable room. This was the original intention but the collection has grown to be somewhat unwieldy. Shamefacedly, I have bought some gear from members here and have not yet even removed same from the packaging due to space limitations.   :-[

Thank you Attie. It's nice to know that some people still have faith in me.    :angel:

But it is time I started planning an extra room again. I knew I should rather have chosen stamp collecting as a hobby - far more space-friendly!

So here are some pics of the B&O system i got today.

All of it:

(http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj567/KBJ1964/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zps505rajc6.jpg)


Beovox 2400 speakers:

(http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj567/KBJ1964/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsikkjyypx.jpg)

Beomaster 1000 receiver:

(http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj567/KBJ1964/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsj5ezqu92.jpg)


Beogram 1000 turntable:

(http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj567/KBJ1964/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsdjbkj8yo.jpg)

(http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj567/KBJ1964/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsg6dwljrs.jpg)

The exteriors are all in great condition, but the right channel of the receiver doesn't work properly (see DIY section soon). The turntable was a freebie thrown in (with a second, incomplete one) and needs work - the gimbal-type mechanism on which the arm is mounted is a bit dodgy. But hey it looks really cool

Those 2400's are lovely speakers - listen all day without any kind of fatigue. Not lazy, muddy sounding but just right. And the cabinet work - beautiful. So they are proper pieces of furniture too. :2thumbs:

0Very nice! I have a couple of sets of the same speakers, they do sound good although I need to probably now change the crossover caps - they are some 5 years old! I think I might also have a similar TT stashed somewhere too, as well as a few other B&O receivers. At their time, they were considerably more upmarket than much of their immediate competition.

Hi guys,

Some pics of my kit that I use on a daily basis...

Very simple setup
(http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff237/gibsowa/AV%20Stuff/58c6a96f-c85b-4624-9c28-52e6c25b91be.jpg) (http://s237.photobucket.com/user/gibsowa/media/AV%20Stuff/58c6a96f-c85b-4624-9c28-52e6c25b91be.jpg.html)

I'm looking to get the Pioneer in for a thorough inspection and fix-up. As you can see, there are bulbs that have died. Then also, the B output isn't working. The knobs are also scratchy when turned.

I'm very happy with the setup, but I'd love to get a valve amp for use with the record player

I am now the lucky and proud owner of that B6. Looks like Darth Vaders mouthpiece at the back. Pity i am useless at posting pics otherwise I could have shared.

Yes, they are. Pioneer S-Z85D. I'm not sure with what system they originally belong to, but they came out in 1991.

So... found these in my Dad's garage. My grandfather bought them for my uncles 21st birthday party in 1972 i think. They are in perfect condition to be honest. No degradation of the cones or tweeters whatsoever. No crumbling surrounds or anything like that. Using them with the Kenwood TK-40SW that he used with them. All ship shape.

They sound really good...but...I mainly use them for background music in the dining room. Pretty much on Classic FM all the time. I think because they have that history they are more about the thought than the sound or performance. R300? Score for that buyer

On the Wharfedales - Maybe it's not really their *purpose* to be vintage? They were probably meant to look respectably brown and tidy, and sound good. If they still sound good, and you can return them to tidyness (without wrapping them in carbon fibre or high-tech composites), then you could argue that you are helping them serve their purpose.

On the subject of sanding, though - is that solid wood? or veneer over fibreboard? If veneer, that might not survive sanding. Perhaps some sort of chemical stripper might be an option?
Title: Re: Vintage Audio Kit - Members' Pics

I think it is veneer over fibreboard. Will have a closer look tonight. Thanks for the input

the one have came with all the paper work and even the original receipts as I mentioned it was still on the box and never opened...
so perhaps pass those on to someone who don't already have a set ? 👍🏿

Ooh, shiny!

Is it OK to use Sunlight liquid on metal with printed lettering? Even matte metal, for example 'brushed' aluminium or steel? Any other safe and tested recommendations? (If that's not a trade secret.)
Title: Re: Vintage Audio Kit - Members' Pics
Post by: JonnyP on November 24, 2016, 07:33:17 PM
Where there's no print I use wipes for glasses etc (with a solvent), then on the print bits some sunlight or kleen green with water on a microfibre cloth. Be careful, even that may take print off some old silver face.  For the plastic toggle switches where the coating has worn off, silver modelling paint and a fine brush work well

OK, thanks - kind of a stupid question, but was wondering if there was some sort of 'museum approved' cleaner that just happened to be cheap and freely available. I'll start with a damp cloth.

This looks like a job for.....3DPrinterMan!!  Actually in case you were not aware of it, this old forum post http://www.avforums.co.za/index.php/topic,26692.msg350506.html#msg350506 (http://www.avforums.co.za/index.php/topic,26692.msg350506.html#msg350506) refers to remanufacturing broken toggles from 'Interfix 1001 plastic', whatever that is.
Title: Re: Vintage Audio Kit - Members' Pics
Post by: JonnyP on November 25, 2016, 07:39:24 PM
I think most glasses cleaners probably have watered down isopropyl alcohol (available cheap at dischem) so that watered down on a microfibre cloth would work.

3D printed toggle switches would look better with the paint job. I'm no model maker but made the ones on my technics look new again with the paint.  Just take it slowly and use a fine brush with no excess paint (learnt that the hard way, wiped up globs of silver paint)

I eventually googled to find out what is screen cleaner,...R100+ for a little spray bottle, seems expensive.  So,...i found there is consensus, people make it with 50-50 isopropyl alcohol and distilled water. 
And i decided that a few drops of Blade (like Cleen Green but better and doesn't stink) in it as well would be helpful.

Which one do would you prefer? NAD 3020A or Pioneer SA-508? The NAD fits so perfectly above the 508, no overlap.

Both have power meters.  :rubhands: I'm so happy now.  :Whoohoo:

Thank you. It's just natural that they should be connected on the NAD. All I need now is a Planar 2 to complete the set. But that would be a waste on my part, I only own a dozen and a half of LPs, most of them are old MFPs.

Spent some time this weekend blowing out 36 year's worth of dust and cleaning contractors and connections as you had to sometimes fiddle the knob to get both channels working on the input selector. All working well now. No signs of leaking capacitors so hope all is good.

Washed all the knobs and faceplate, still a few light dull marks on the face but I don't want to scrub too much.

Looks interesting.. Looks like the exact same image though, so be careful if it's being advertised for sale locally.

Goodmans had a speaker cabinet not too different in appearance from that one back in the good old days, but only a speaker cabinet, not a full-fledged system. Nice one, please keep us informed if you go for it... as you should!  ;)

First post in this section. Not sure if circa 1982 kit is ok for vintage?

Anyhow, I picked up this Marantz PM750DC beauty yesterday at a Cash Converters shop in CT.

She sounds good and has a healthy 80 Watts/ch.
Very neat condition and just had to do a light cleaning and I must re-attach the acrylic window over the leds.

2 phono inputs with both MM and MC

Thanks FD, I may well keep this one for a second (my vintage) setup. Iím getting a pair of modern Mission MX2 speakers (hopefully today) and it will be interesting to see how they will match up or not. This is also my very first Marantz stereo amp.

I also have a very nice cosmetic condition Pioneer KH-4455 (aka Rondo 3000), but I already like this one even more.

Ok, I finally hooked her up and must say that I'm pretty impressed. A step up over the entry to mid-level Pioneers of the same vintage that I was used to?

It has an ok damping factor of 85 for the era. Although I do prefer a high damping factor and as such I crave a minimum of around 400 and makes it easier to match speakers.

Currently got the Mission MX2's hooked up and its not a total disaster as far as matching goes.

The Marantz has a nice full and solid sound. Not bad with high hats either and articulate enough for most genres.

Will listen some more and then hook up the Piega's to get the lowdown.

I made a plan with the speaker terminals for now, so that I can switch amps easier - I wish everything had banana plugs.

Yep, those spring terminals are terrible. Worst ones I came across were fitted to the Tehcnics SE-A5. Beautiful amp, but really crappy speaker connectors. Ripping them out and fitting decent binding posts solved that problem. Obviously Technics thought so too, because the SE-A5 Mk II had decent binding posts fitted straight from the factory.

Hallo!
New to this forum thing!
Can anyone maybe assist in giving me some more information on my system?
Blaupunkt System 222 Super De Luxe, canít seem to find anything on google?
Is it worth restoring?

That looks like a nice enough turntable, decent looking gimbal at the pivot, arm and headshell looks promising, a semi-automatic with pitch control by the looks of it, belt drive performance, and what looks like a spring-suspension table, Blaupunkt, being German by design if not mistaken, overall may make this worthy of the time and effort spent in getting her singing sweetly.

Finally found another set. The big Jamo CB1702 and smaller versions CBR904 pictured. Both have a similar sound. Very transparent. I prefer the smaller CBR904's the my set of AR38s. The CBR1702 are 1982 models and the CBR904 1984 models. Driven with Yamaha A700 and Lenco L75.

Testing testing.. The Yamaha C-4 arrived last week, still need to give it a good scrub but couldn't resist.. Hooked it up to the big M-2 power amplifier and it is sounding pretty darn good thus far.  :2thumbs: I currently have the NS-100M speakers connected to them but will be running the FX-3's once the woofers have new surrounds.

Yes that's the one. I'm still looking for a decent vintage Yamaha cdp but the Philips is doing just fine for now, especially when I have it hooked up to my Theta dac and Cary "cd processor".

Hey Bradley - I would love to see the pictures . You need to host them at an image hosting site , like www.postimg.cc (http://www.postimg.cc) , once you've uploaded there , click on the small image so it becomes larger , then right click on the image and select the option "Copy image adress" . This copies the image URL to your computers clipboard in the background (you can't see that it has happened) . Then go back to the forum topic and push the "reply" button , not "quick reply" . This takes you to the full forum editing interface . Then push the button that looks like a little "Mona Lisa" picture , this will make the "insert image" brackets appear in the text block with a flashing cursor in the middle . Press the "CTRL" key on your keyboard , hold it in and press the "v" key on your keyboard at the same time , this will copy the image URL from the clipboard to between the brackets . Now click behind the brackets and repeat procedure if necessary .

Just cleaned it up a bit and she was all good - sounding absolutely beautiful.  :2thumbs:
I think I will need to replace some caps at a later stage as there is some ground hum from the TT, which is not present on my AVR, but I can live with it for now.

Ancient Wharfedale Airedale loudspeakers from 1964 (I think)

They are huge!  (HxWxD: 100 x 68 x 35 cm)

This is me standing next to them (I'm 1.83m)...

And here they are in the living room...

Got these beauties but found out afterwards the tweeters are blown.

But thanks to Brian they are alive again, he did am amazing job of putting in a new tweeter whilst still keeping the original look except for the purple color but I'm happy they not purple anymore :).he also made a new cross over and backboard with binding posts, added some bracing and put on grill plugs. I also got a detailed report on all the work done with measurements. Thanks again Brian you are amazing.

They sound lovely, beautiful midrange and a well balanced sound  :dance:
