How do you solve the problem with noise from the computer? I've reduced speed of fans and isolated as much as I dare with regard to heat, but it is still not quiet enough. Any other tricks worth trying?

Originally posted by Annuka Most of it purchased 1998. Still satisfied with it after four years. Hope to keep the system for at least 10 years.
Originally posted by smg Wide variaty Thats for sure. Everything from pure analog to pure digital and some hybrids mixed in.
Originally posted by smg Pio2001 I'm trying to understand this statement: "Vinyls are played directly on the drum, no slipmat. Two upside down glasses weight on the record to prevent it from slipping". Is there a purpose to this method that I'm unaware of?

Originally posted by fewtch Is there anyone around who still repairs 70's power amps, etc? I would think within another 5-10 years, capacitors will start drying up, pots will need replacing, flywheel tuner systems will need overhauled, etc.There could be a lot of "hidden costs" in 70's equipment a bit down the road, unless you're an electronics expert.
Originally posted by fewtch I just bought this tuner today... this might be a little too "retro" even for you smg (or too cheap) ... who can complain for .00? I bought it purely for the looks, looks *great* next to digital computer equipment! (hahahaha!):I plan to hook it to some old amplified computer speakers I'm not using, to start with . Maybe start dabbling around again with a little AM-band DX'ing, picking up long distance stations at night with it.
Originally posted by ff123 lol! Does it have an AFC switch or does it actually do PLL to keep the station from drifting? I see the little meter to tell you when you've got maximum signal strength.
Originally posted by 2Bdecided I have no idea how much of this is available in the USA. I assume you have your own classic hi-fi, but it seems to be the the British stuff from this era that is collectable - many a Garrard/Quad system been purchased by hi-fi enthusiasts from Asia.That fact that discerning people from that continent are so keen to collect British Audio equipment from the 1960s tells you all you need to know about their own audio equipment from the 1970s!
