What a beauty, super scope! :D

We don't see much KLH stuff on here, and I'm a sucker for those blue lights! It's got that nice, sleek, European look to it, too! It looks good with your Techie, as well...It seems to have that nice, "warm" sound, as demoed here... =D>

Any 8-track love? From my dad's garage, a Panasonic LTD RE-8140:

A couple of new belts, some fresh lube, and this guy was working just fine!

That's surely a unique one, Jody, and in immaculate shape...What 8-tracks have you been playing lately on 'er??? :-k

I guess I do get a little nostalgic for that "chug" sound every time it changes to a different program...Reminds me of this Lloyd's machine my Dad once had...

Haha...I grabbed a Ray Stevens 8-track tape for testing purposes. This unit was traded for cash at a local record shop for the lowly amount of about $10 :( That barely covered the cost of the new belts.

LOL, been there with 8 tracks. I picked up this good looking 8 track to putz around with and with new belts the total cost was $15. When I was done playing around I just wanted to recoup the funds, and barely managed that. It was a fun experiment but I think I have scratched my 8 track itch .

Pioneer SX-980 I've used this in my project Studio for monitoring through my Yamaha
NS-10s because of its flat response. And amazing clarity. Now it is going back to turntable vinyl duties.

Others will tell you, but the easiest is to turn your camera 90 degrees when taking the pic.

That looks like a real beauty! 8)

You have to open the image on your computer photo program, rotate the image and resave it once you have it upright.

Those were the days when Pioneer, Technics, Kenwood, Sansui, Sherwood, Scott, Fisher, and others, were all trying to put as many buttons, knobs, and switches as possible, on the front panels to outdo each other, in order to impress people.

It works. More wood, knobs, and brushed aluminum I say!

Is this from the days of the "power wars?"...about the time that disco hit? Late 70's, most of the 80's, I never followed music, just played what I had on my Sansui 3000 (then Sony STRV35) into my Bose 901's. Seems that I missed out on a whole 'nother generation of gear!

That Pioneer is absolutely beautiful: why can't they bring back the "silver face" once again?
