Yeah, that's the decoder on them.   Without it, it's just a nice four channel amp, not an actual quad.   Just as well, the Sansui you sold me has a better decoder anyway (but I have a weakness for Marantz).

Too many to list here, but the hundreds of ebay sellers listing speakers that are clearly missing their foam surrounds in their pics as "excellent, works great, etc...".

Had no idea that drugs had been legalized across the USA.

Stupid isn't the same thing as a scammer.

For me, it's the string of albums he did with Paul Buckmaster string arrangements, starting with the self titled, and going through Tumbleweed Connection, Friends and especially Madman Across the Water.   I think it's hard to overstate Paul's contribution to the sound of those works.

I found some Google images.    The ones I have are not for that table.   Sorry.

That would be great if you do.   Ok to text you in a few days  after you can confirm?
And thanks, Mark.

Sure.   I also have a few pair kicking around and a width measurement would be helpful.

Pretty sure I saw a garden hose in there, for the fires I assume.

I have to wonder if he's related to the 5000 watt stereo in the woods guy:

Did Pepe do that video?   Sounds like his voice.

I made it through twelve seconds.

Why not a better HT pre from Marantz or maybe Outlaw or one of the other boutique brands then run vintage amps with it?

You always have to check those before plugging in.   The good thing is that a short there likely didn't harm the amp.   You do know not to power on a tube amp without a load, right?
