Now to get some speakers

Ignore the mess. Testing items... IMG_20180217_171509.jpg


Nice haul!


I may have to repair my Yamaha receiver.
The sound (amp?) is cutting out randomly (video keeps on fine).


The HSU setup sounds gooooooud...even in near field.

U can try reselling the tape deck on the Bay....
$480 is harsh. You can get better components that will blow those out the water for way less $. I not trying to get you to buy my gear but have a link above with my gear for sale. Non of those items were even close to the price he wants for the set. I can assure u, much better quality.

Ppl on eBay with those "vintage" gear are way ridiculous now. Your money, your choice.

^^LoL yeah some of them really ridiculous.
I paid US$120 for mine

US$89 for the equalizer from another seller.

US$480 is a hell of a lot.

Ikr Morph!
Damn, daz what u call a great deal on your buy. I have speakers to pipe if u want. In a jam n need cash urgently.

Thanks bro. I did a lot of research. I was gonna buy a tape deck but changed my mind. Way too expensive. I bought a better and more versatile format instead.

I piping the amps btw also

Good afternoon all, has anyone tried replacing their cablebox (specifically Digicel) with an HDHomeRun or similar type device? Curious to know if it would work here. Link provided to the product https://www.silicondust.com/hdhomerun/

How much for that? Can it handle high powered equipment? Like about 600W or so?

I have the Andrew Jones powered sub. It was broken in good and it really does perform at barely half frequency and volume. I believe it is mid to high for a good home entertain system. I use a sound bar and I would add an external amplifier and get their bookshelf speakers as I am pleased with the subs performance.
Also added to the fact I am a Pioneer junkie

This an amazing non audiophile system. Was looking at this when I was buying my system

How much shipping cost though ?.

BTW got my receiver repaired. Had to bring in a regulator for about 15usd and pay a guy a $400.
