Recently purchased a vintage Pioneer SX-1050 integrated amp (super clean!) from an estate sale for $280, mated it with a pair of jbl L880 speakers from Tweeter (they are closing out their California stores) for $700, and then added a Rega Planar 1 turntable from eBay for $350.
Finished bastardizing with Monster cable from Radio Hack for $30.
Grand total $1360.
I am not including the free Denon DCM 440 (thanks wifey) CD carousel changer that I want to add to my backyard system so I can upgrade.
Many questions to follow as I listen to my new unit with open ears and open mind...I should add that my tastes range from trip-hop to bluegrass to opera to jazz to rock....etc...etc...
comments...questions (hopefully DUP responds to validate me on this forum..)
