This week at the thrifts I found a pair of JBL 3 way 12" Best Buy era speakers for $10.   Need foam but the cabinets are very sound.   I also got a Cambridge Audio D300 Special Edition CD player for $5.   May repaint the top if it doesn't clean up, but seems to be 100% functional.

I stopped by an estate sale early Saturday and grabbed a Sanyo TT and a Cybernet brand integrated amp and tuner.   Also met a gentleman who I assume is the fellow from Irwin who has loads of tubes listed on Ebay (00feedman) .

Amp volume is a little scratchy when turning but plays clean so this should work in the garage while I get the Sansui amp's speaker inputs replaced.

That cybernet gear should be pretty decent, if I recall correctly they were an off brand of Kyocera.

Dave brubeck and buddy guy record


I didn't realize that Brubeck and Guy did a record.   What is it called?

@ ESM   Hope that the doghouse is roomy!!!!

@ Resident    Yes, the Cybernet is pretty solid.  I have it on the deck setup and listening to 'Dinks Song" right now.  Plenty load for the neighbors, set at around 9 o'clock and connected to some Minumus 25s that I picked up Thursday at the GW

@ESM. Great find on the 10.5" reels. Wish I could find an affordable deal on some of those.
