Chock full of stereo ads - Pioneer SX727 and Kenwood KR-7200 to name a couple, as well as several multi-page spreads for music clubs... including one called the Stereo Tape Club of America, that offered 8 track tapes and a free 8 track stereo unit when you subscribed.
You looked at the audio and music ads in Playboy!!??! No wonder they said we audio freaks were odd ... Good thing they didn't have much in the way of bike ads!

Of course, you refrained from peeking at any of the non-audio stereo equipment on display in said periodcal, right? Right?

Why yes... yes, I did. Nekkid women I can see anywhere - vintage stereo ads are a whole 'nuther kettle of fish. Not to mention all the booze and cigarette ads, as well as a two page spread on all the available configurations available for the new Ford Pinto. I'll take the Red White and Blue special edition, please..... although I gotta admit the orange one with the Sport Accent Group is pretty sweet looking.

Purely in the interests of historical literary preservation, I found it necessary to open up the centerfold in order to gently remove the fine speckles of mold from Miss Summer's imperiled buttocks. For the sake of future generations, mind you.

My cousin had a Ford Pinto. I remember going with her to the dealership to get the safety plate installed so the gas tank wouldn't act like a bomb in an accident. It was bright yellow with a black racing stripe swoosh on the side. My 1966 Mustang could take her Pinto any day though.

It need not. Don't let the industry convince you that you need a fancy TV with built in whatchamajiggers. Get thee a Roku. Built-in Netflix streaming, Pandora, and bunch of other stuff.

I'm about to get another, one to hook up to a late 70s B&W TV set.

You do realize, that by saying that in public and in writing, you just made life a living hell for his daughter, don't you?

Only if she puts any stock into what a buncha bike and stereo freak curmudgeons on the Net, who mostly have never even met her dad, have to say!

My faith in him could be entirely misplaced!

Just now saw a TX-NR901 at the thrift shop. No HDMI, but network-aware and analog pre-outs.

This is my first go-around with Onkyo stuff. I had the 608 installed for about 2 weeks, but sent it back to Amazon. No phono in, no analog pre-outs, not network connection, and its 100W/ch just didn't drive my mains properly.

I didn't do my homework.

The 808 has all that missing stuff, and about 135W/ch to boot. So far, so good. When the ADCOM gets home it gets plugged in to the pre-outs to off-load the mains, and essentially the 808 will become a fancy-schmancy pre-amp.

Just watched the DVD of Albert Collins Live in Austin last night. Wow, that man could play... and Frosty never sounded so good.

The missus had a Pinto when I met her, to a ticket in it going 77.
I had to go to court with her because I didn't believe it.
The judge didn't, either, and dismissed it.

Albert Collins stuff on Gator is hard to beat if you can find it.

Alligator Records? I've got all of those. I've been an Albert Collins fan since he sat down in the seat in front of me at Perkins Palace in Pasadena CA and played his music. That was on December 11, 1981.

I had gone there with my buddies to see the tail end of the George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers "50 shows in 50 days, in 50 states" tour. Albert opened for them, and it flat blew me away. I was 24 years old at the time, and had never heard anything like that live, in my life.

Aside from being transfixed by the sound coming off his fingers, I'll never, ever forget standing right behind him and looking down over his shoulder while he caressed his beautiful music out of that Telecaster. It was a defining moment - I was mesmerized.

>shudder< I need a cigarette......

I saw George in his "50 States in 50 days" tour while a student at Florida State. Made sense he would hit Tallahassee instead of going south on the peninsula for that tour. It was at a small auditorum on campus. George and his boys traveled around on that tour in a Checker cab. Great concert, I was in the second row.

Seriously, though - now that I have a decent A/V receiver plugged in (Onkyo NR-808), I'm pretty much good to go. The 200W/ch ADCOM GFA-555II comes off the test bench today, all tweaked and cleaned and ready to shoulder the 2-channel load to my Hales Engineering Group Revelation 3 main speakers. The Onkyo doesn't sound half bad though - and makes a pretty darn good surround-sound capable pre-amp, what with all the outputs and its 135W/ch oomph. And it even has a phono input - woot!

BTW - pre-game ride and Super Bowl party at my house. Shhhhhh....... don't tell anyone. Come on by, and drag that worthless brother of yours along.
As I recall that "...rat-bastid salesman..." did say something about the audio but it got brushed off at the time IIRC. Just so you know I talked to the same salesman and got hooked up the right way first time around. I heard he's gone now so good luck getting any more decent advice down the road.

I also just scored a not so vintage but very nice Pioneer VSX-3800 receiver that has 390 watts with a phono input for all of $8.00 to take care of my vinyl requirements. Now I just need some vinyl...

Looks like I'll have to pass on the Superbowl ride and game as I'm flying to Orlando, FL that day. Have fun without me. Guess you can have my brother over that day if you can talk him out of the fogbank that is the Central Valley.

Don't exaggerate..... the VSX-3800 is rated at 150W/ch. But still - $8?!?!? Damn.......

I just Googled it - seems the VSX-3800 has a history of power/heat issues. Don't put it next to the curtains.

Here is my recipe for my homebrew record cleaning fluid as well. One part isopropyl alcohol (91%+), three parts distilled water, and a few drops of Kodak Photoflow. Photoflow is used as a wetting agent for developing film. It can be found at camera shops. If you can't find it I have seen a few other recipes using Woolite or liquid dish detergent (Dawn, Palmolive, Ivory, etc.) instead. I use the original fluid bottle that came with my VPI cleaner as the dispenser. I mix up a batch using a 64 ounce gatorade bottle. One 16 oz bottle of the iso alcohol, fill with distilled water and drop in a cap full of photoflow.

Hey bigbossman, that is similar to my '76 Pioneer SX650 receiver that I bought in high school and still use. I wish I still had the Yamaha manual turntable, but I traded it as a lazy teen for an automatic Technics. I still have that one, plus picked up a direct drive Technics at local thrift a few years ago. I also miss my original Jensen LS-5 series lab speakers - they were huge, but the Pioneer could drive them, even with only 35 watts per channel. I use old JBL bookshelfs now. My middle daughter plays trumpet in the high school jazz band and we have enjoyed listening to some of my old jazz albums together. She hasn't gotten into the rock albums, though.
Best wishes to all!

My daughter prefers digital.

I told her records were for dancing. She took that the wrong way.
Last week I had to try to explain a telephone cord to them. "We used to use these to attach the phone to the wall." "That seems awfully inconvenient, Daddy. Why would you want to attach your phone to the wall?"
