Default My new "old" setup.

So I was using a very crappy starter Crosley player. I bought it with very little research and it really is junk. I asked my dad what he had and luckily he had his old stuff laying around. I hooked it all up and I'm thrilled with this setup for now. It all works great. Only new thing in the setup is a pair of Polk bookshelf speakers... Everything else is from the late 70's to early 80's.


I really couldn't be happier right now. This sounds and works 100x better than what I had.

Do you find it a pain having to kneel down to choose a record? I just ask because I'm debating whether or not to put my shelving that way as apossed to the taller way I have it now.

No problems as of yet, but as the collection grows and there is more to look through down below it may become a pain. This works pretty well though right now because the cubes are the perfect size for vinyl.

Thank you. The turntable is an old Collaro which is a Magnavox brand. I was going to get a new player and my dad gave me this thing which is great. Took away any need I have for a new player anytime soon. I love this thing.

It is a Technics. No clue on the model number. It is from the late 70's (78-79 area). My dad gave it to me and it works fantastic still after all these years.

I have searched for a good analog receiver to replace my 38 yr. old Pioneer SX - 450(gave up the ghost ).

Pioneer SX 450 Stereo Receiver


This has been such a difficult rundown, however I found/bought a Onkyo TX-8020 Stereo Receiver(it has similar components on it as the Pioneer that I wanted...especially to listen through our Sony TV + 4 speakers...old school )!!!


ONKYO TX-8020 Stereo Receiver
