John T. Rescued His Thorens from the Dumpster

We have had the Pioneer since new in 1977. It was my dads, Christmas present from my mom. Just finished re-capping it. It was paired with the JBL 250Ti bought new in 1986. I built the 10 cu. ft. sub-cabinet 2 years ago from 3/4” mdf with black oak veneer. Dual 504 was mine purchased new back in the ’80s.

The Thorens I saved from the dumpster as the owner was throwing it away. He thought the motor was bad. Turned out he was using the wrong power supply. Crown powers the sub as its DSP can match the settings used in the JBL BX63A.
