Noise and Stuff
I haven't posted for a while, but I found an interesting New York Times article on noise that I thought I'd share.
A few weeks ago I shipped my KLH Model Eight table radio off to Ohio to be fixed and it came back in tip-top shape. The guy replaced one tube and several capacitors as well as a general cleaning and getting rid of volume knob static. It sounds as good as new and should be good to go for another 40 years or so.
Not exactly vintage audio-related, but I picked up a full-sized Aero Fighters arcade game from Salvation Army yesterday. You can see a video of it here.
I've got my eyes on a vintage Toshiba receiver, so I'll post that if I decide to get it. Otherwise - send in your photos, stories, and links to videos.
Don't forget you can post your gear photos on the HiFiCollector.com Facebook fan page HERE. We're over 100 strong now!
Also - Our new blog, The Nostalgia Lounge, has several vintage and strange items from around our house.
Last but not least, the HiFi Collector Forum continues to grow and is a great place to get vintage stereo pricing info, gear suggestions, technical tips, and much more. Join or just browse - have fun!
