Wow. I had a KLH model 24 turntable. Then my parents bought a pair of KLH Model 6 speakers. I remember how excited I was to unpack and listen to them for the first time. Does that make me vintage too?
If you're vintage, so am I. I remember the whole system....I also remember when the walkman was all that too.....
I enjoyed the fun of gadgets and components. It was like golf or fishing, there was always a gift opportunity for someone to add to their system. It is a bit more interesting than the iPhone where you purchase hardware once and done. The joy of the iTunes gift card and the download just fails to have the same feel of unwrapping that album or upgrading your turntable, adding a new cassette deck or disposing of that 8Track component.I miss big speakers. I loved busting up old woofers for the magnets and wire. OK, I just liked busting things up.On the other hand, who ever thought hundreds of hours of music would be so transportable as it is on the iPhone.
No, it wasn't!
I would love wiring components. I am still amazed that I personally installed a cassette player and 4 speakers into my 1970 Impala. I think it really prepared me for the wiring of today. I'm not afraid to tackle setting up a new desktop or a roku and figuring all that out. This mom is the go-to person for wiring at our house.About 15 years ago my father-in-law asked me to get rid of the blinking light on his vcr. I said "sure" and got a piece of black tape and put it across the light. He got a good laugh out of that one.
Hey, I have black tape on all my equipment!I also still have a B&O tuner and big ugly speakers.
I have a B & O tuner too. Will sell it cheap.
Sell it to who?
