You've done really well in the last few months with some great acquisitions, so I'm sure the improvement in sound has been very noticeable. Would you buy just a CD or a SACD capable one?

Have my eye on a Marantz CD5004 which I believe plays both.

Dude .............. seriously ?

How can you say treatments don't matter to you much because of hearing loss but upgrade your gear thousands of times
[Show spoiler]
to get a better sound

. Which one is it kid ?

I know the old CrazDogg would've loved to have "had his cake and eat it too" but not the new version

Definitely a great find for $20 I certainly approve.

Hook those up and see how they sound

No upgrades, was just doing a garage sale thing, something people do. See you read the posts, as stated I'm not trying to wrap my brain around the panels and science of placement at this time. So you can stop singing that song. The Sansui's are my garage sounding tight, could'nt pass them up. A nice investment .

Those would be some killer garage speakers! I don't blame you for picking them up, and for only $20, you'd be a fool not to have. If you ever want to flip those, you could make some good coin, considering the cabinets look as good as the grills and fronts.

Haven't really spent anytime in the garage will reorganize it tomorrow. Ripping some classic house mix off yo-tube for the task, stretch them out after the gym.

Nice.

My garage system doesn't get much activity either during the summer months.
