Well that beats the hell out of my 10 ohm resistors and a selection of diodes!

There's some lovely retro equipment there

I heard one of those at audiofest in Victoria... not bad for what they cost. A "modder's delight"

So who's next with their barnyard, thrift store, graigslist etc. finds?

This was intended as a running topic for all to post and not just my
personal 'hey look at me, ain't I lucky' corner

Today, when looking for a decent tuner for a friend and after deciding
there was only junk I walked away and in the corner of my eye something
shiny winked at me I just had to get it...

Well i'll share a few things I picked up - I received most things free except the Image towers I paid $200 for them.

Klipsch KG-4's - Free from a guy that fed me beer all afternoon then said oh you like stereos? I got some Klipsch's in my basement you can take away. They have 2 powered 8" 1 klipsch horn and 12" passive on back. The cab's suck but ohwell.

1950's Westinghouse Tube shortwave/am radio(okay this costed $5). With AUX input. I used a cd player on it!!! Here it is restored and gave it to my mom for christmas! My father thought it was a 'brand new old style' radio. Lost track at 18 coats of varnish - LOL

Some nice small Advent's

Image towers made by API canada in 1986. They sound great, 4 inch air ports, cloth dome tweeter, rubber surrounds and poly cones i believe they are also stitched to the cones They most definately hit 20 hz and i'm still amazed to this day the deep bass that comes out of the rear ports.

Here's another pic of the radio - the other picture showed the varnishing was not finished, I just had the radio in for testing because it was being a royal pain, but runs very nice now.
