Also been very useful as a husband and got the wife a
new desk and computer in the bedroom. She now has
two desks, two computers and a laptop! So no complaining
about the 20 cd players in the living room please

Mainly thrift stores and marktplaats.nl I've got a few smal piles of
wireless world, pe, elektuur, radio bulletin to read before bedtime which
my father collected. I just kept a few as there's no more room in da house
I love it as falling asleep literature.

Simple but nice find of the day.

Nakamichi receiver 2, cdplayer 4 and cassette deck 2

Just hooked them up and this does not sound bad
when played through the boston accoustics

Would surely give Kitarist his rock warmth for not a lot of money

And daddy finally got himself a pair of reading glasses Last night I was
changing some caps on a cd player and the eyestrain won from the 'I'm still young
I don't need them' voice in my head. Must admit I can now count the pores in my
fingers again

I reckon I got the first ever Bose (no highs, no lows....)
Found this Decca Decola radiogram (yes I know everyone loathes radiograms!) in the local auction rooms. What caught my eye was a pair of PX25s peeking through a ventilation slot (these subsequently turned out to be 100% and 105%). $30 took it home and when I opened the speaker cavity, I found this....

Now I can only imagine what 3 x 12" stiff suspension single cone wooffers would sound like in a 2 cubic foot open back enclosure, but "wide range" are not the words that spring to mind!.

With all the open baffles going around it might even sound decent compared
I've heard some stiff suspensions doing amazing things.

But the tubes already made your day I guess
