I have a thing for vintage audio gear as well. Not a serious collector as space limiatations are just that.

I tend towards Pioneer and KLH (Kloss era). I have several examples of both. My flagship is a Pioneer SX-1250, fully restored, with HPM 100s, a Pl-530 TT, PD-70 CDP, 1020L RTR plus vintage cassette and 8 track players. I have a few other of the SX series as well.

Also a few other random gets here and there. And old Magnavox tube player, a restored Yamaha CR-1020, some Eicos and Duals that I have scavenged. And I cannot turn down an old metal faced CD player should I stumble upon one.

The one problem is that other than cleaning pots and switches, I have no skill at fixing them up.

I have some Heathkits that I built back around 1970. Separate AM and FM tuners and a "hi-fi mono amplifier"! I used the latter for my electric bass; since it was only 25W RMS, I could get lovely distortion out of it without it being earsplittingly loud. It still worked about 10 years ago. I don't know about the tuners; the electrolytics may have dried out by now. They were fun to build!

Cool. Replacing the caps, in theory, is not that difficult.

Yeah (in theory). I suppose I'll have to give them the smoke test one of these days!
