Yow, what a collection. Any McIntosh? They were always considered the best when I was growing up.

I still use my JVC receiver and Sony turntable from 1976. Great stuff. The JVC receiver has a 7-band equalizer built in. I hate the new stuff with 'preset' tone settings to choose from. I also have two reel-to-reels, a Sony TC630D (ca. 1970) and a Teac 3440S (about 1976). I also have late-70s Polk S10 speakers with passive radiators.

ur right, jvc stuff from the 70s is really decent, and very much overlooked by most audiophiles, i have the 5550u receiver from the early 70s that i love, i too have a few sony RTR decks, i have 2 tc-558s and a tc-200, i also have a teac 4300 and a a-2340r, i have the polk monitor 10s with a passive 10"radiator, and the peerless tweeters, (early model), i use those with a marantz 2230

It appears to be a collection of mediocre gear. If the object of the exercise is listening to music with as high a level of fidelity as possible I'd argue he's better off selling all that stuff and using the dough on a few pieces of excellent gear.

Read the OP. He's a collector with over 300 receivers, etc. If he listened to your argument "selling all that stuff ...." then he would not be a collector, would he?

Personally, I think it is very cool to see the old Pioneer receivers and RTR's.
