Sony Stereo Components (but I would trade 3 of my Sony receivers for one Sansui amp like Kreshna Aryaguna Nurzaman's one he posted above!!!! - That's a beauty for sure)
Sansui integrateds are plentiful on ebay, and low-watt models like my A-40 aren't really expensive. Good hunting! 😀
EDIT: P.S. Kreshna, I'm not that much into vintage speakers but you might be interested to know that my dad has used a pair of Klipsch KG-4 clones that he built in high school as the main living room speakers for years. They sound just as good as real KG-4's (coming from me that's a real compliment cause I'm annoyingly picky about audio quality), which is a miracle because he didn't even do any calculations or anything when he built them.
Interesting. Did he copy the exact dimensions of the original KG-4? Also, do you have photos?
I remember auditioning a pair of Klipsch KG-4.2 in early 2015. They indeed have impressive bass, but HF details leaves a lot to be desired --certainly nowhere as impressive as JBL titanium speakers.
I NEVER just let something vintage from my collection just sit on a shelf.
If I can't use it, I don't buy it.
In fact, I'm just about to go walking around taking pictures with a vintage film camera.
Come to think of it, I have come to realize I'm not really a collector either. When I stockpile a certain kind of hardware, it is because the hardware is suitable to build the system I want, instead of its collectible values (or the lack thereof). A Voodoo5 5500, for example, makes it possible to activate FSAA on most GLide games, and some of my favorite flight sims just happen to be GLide games. And that's the reason I 'collect' Voodoo5 5500 video cards. On the other hand, I'd never buy something purely because of its collectible values. You wouldn't find me buying a pair of JBL 4311's, for example, because I don't really like the sound despite the speakers' historical value.
So, no, I'm not really a collector. And it's kinda ironic, because both my grandpa (on my dad's side) and my dad were both collectors. My grandpa collected purebred horses, while my dad collected vintage 4x4 offroaders. Turned out I don't really inherit their traits. 😊
Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....
