Started creating my vintage setup in 2013 with the speakers I bought locally that had had the
crossovers redone and I refinished the exterior myself. The other vintage pieces were accumulated through trial and error until I was happy with the quality.
As far as the amplifier is concerned, I really wanted tubes after years of using a Scott 222c and wanting a little more output. The turntable was purchased right after my Pioneer PL-41 died an honorable death after I had already resurrected once (but I still haven’t given up on it).
