Complete novice here, even though I am 78 years old in the outside world.

I have gradually resurrected my old Revox system -

Revox A76 Tuner
Revox A78 Amp
Revox A77 4 track tape recorder
Revox Ax4-3 speakers 4 ohm impedance
JBL L100 Century speakers 8 ohms impedance.
Dual 1229 turntable

Many accessories, headphones, microphones etc.

I live in rural New South Wales and information in s small town about this stuff is hard to come by.

I have downloaded all the on-line Revox manuals, but when it comes to understanding the details and how it all works together I completely lost.

I am hoping a kind soul can give me some onsight on what is and is not possible when trying to couple the old stuff with modern equipment.

I run a 27" Mac wired outside with ADSL 2, Wifi indoors and Bose sound systems.

I have also tested the Revox and JBL parts of the resurrection. The speakers JBL and Revox work well, the tuner and amp are fine as well even though they haven't been used for well over 15 years.

I guess good gear lasts?

I hope people can give me hints on how it may be possible (for example) to get a signal from YouTube via by Mac and Wifi to the Revox amp and tuner and hence eventually to the speakers which always sound so clear and mellow to me compared to the modern equivalents.

Thank you for reading,

Tom

Welcome to the forum! I used to make my living slaving over a Revox tape deck or two. :)
There are several ways to get the audio out of your Mac and into the system. The easiest would be a simple 1/8" headphone jack to 2xRCA that you plug into the back of the amp. If you have open inputs.

A somewhat more complex version is to use a USB external soundcard, or even Apple TV. With Apple TV you are not tied to wires.
