    Default Old shyte and stuff

    Being a big fan of the 'Bargains on E Bay thread ' , I was eventually moved to post a picture of the Oddball 'mancave' and to talk a bi about my hi fi thoughts!!
    Very random I know , but having watched over the last few months , how just about everything on E Bay is silly money nowadays , I am glad I bought my old tat a couple of yrs ago ,in the main , and I hopefully will avoid searching for The Holy Grail of vinyl ,by spending an shed load on different cartridges every now and then , and turntables , in the pursuit of it !!
    Not to say I would not mind a very nice Akai TT like the one my roommate next door had in 1975/76 at college ,forget the model , I saw one in Birmingham 2 years ago and it made £285 at the time , what would it fetch now
    I bought a Technics SU - VX 700 last June , a Denon cd player and a Nad tuner , so they sit along the old Hitachi branded hi fi with a Project Debut Carbon in blue on top .
    Oh and Jachaks old sub , a Rel Q50
    My limited hearing in the one ear (I lack hearing treble in that one) means I have taken a step back from the vinyl a bit ,and since I got into surround sound (Partly through Jackhawks generous donation of his old Marantz SR5400 !!) and the addition of a firestick on the TV , some donated Mission 733 speakers , I am mainly listening to Spotify and you Tube and cds!
    Yes , I know its a mess and the diddy Panasonic speakers are in the tip , and some 50 watt Akai' s inplace of the 2 either side of the tv which have been used as a centre and rear !
    I particularly love watching You Tube and getting all the Rolls Royce Merlin vids , Vulcan footage and 70's RAC Rally highlights and just blasting the room out!!!!
    What a heathen

    Looks like it was taken with a 'fish eye' lens.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    It needs to be solid because the HMV /ADC turntable: is very very prone to any vibration.

    Thank you

    Here is a more conventional look taken today !
    Fired the stove up and away to go


    A close up of the old s*****
    The cabinet came with my old HMV stack ,and I find it handy ,despite it being 'shedwork'! It even has a bottom draw for those bits of tat you don't know what to do with.
    The upright silver lamp was given to my daughter to save it from the skip.
    Neither lamps worked in fact the top halogen bulb uplighter was a 500 watt!!!! Jesus !! (sign on side said max 350 watt !! ) At least it must have doubled up as a heater once I put a 15 watt led in it and a 5 watt in the spot !
    Tidy

    Looks good, except for that red and white lampshade which is an abomination. I'd recommend killing it with fire.

    What are the 3 way Akais like?
