4 out of 5 "Mission 780A speakers."
Bought these years ago when I managed a popular hi-fi store. I owned them for years as I couldn’t find anything I liked more after listening to more than a few other speakers. These aren’t the most civilised speakers but they are very good at everything rather than excellent at one. The bass is low and tight, midrange open and airy with vocals coming through silky smooth above any amount of instrumentation or guitar howl and the treble is smoot... More

I've had my pair of vintage 307a’s since the late 1990's. They required an ENORMOUS amount of breaking in – over 200 hours before the harshness left and they sweetened up. They are also very amplifier dependent and need something capable of delivering decent current otherwise they just sound flat. They are neutral, almost analytical with very detailed with a wide soundstage and great separation. As to be expected for a speaker of this s... More

5 out of 5 "This amp (& tuner) changed my life as a teen"
because from then on I heard my rock and roll in a new way. I got the matching tuner too. From a pawn shop. Put a Sansui SE-77 EQ a pair of 301ii’s and JBL’s. Add a Yamaha cd player and it makes amazing music. I have clean out the front controls every now and then. I’ve had it repaired only once. Power switch needed repair. I have NEVER turned the volume past 5. More

4 out of 5 "Marantz pm25"
I own this one , is excellent , it’s 30 wpc on 8 ohms. Sound is warm and deep, phono max volume is not as good as the other sources but with a phono pre amp works great if you love wax. For cd it has a direct button that gives a nice boost. More

5 out of 5 "Sony STR-D1090"
I've had mine for 30 years almost: in that time its been simply brilliant. Finally something has failed so I get the failsafe signal that usually means the speakers have shorted or similar, but with other speakers is does the same. There's no simple capacitor failure and nothing else I can see: the transformer checks out as in spec outputs. No local techs will touch it [obsolete money pit they say] so I keep looking for a used one so I can keep m... More

5 out of 5 "Fantastisk AV-AMP/Music AMP:-)"
Jeg havde denne forstærker i 9år, købte den i KT Radio sammen med et sæt Audiovector S3 og SC Center. Forstærkerenen her er med B&O ICE Powermoduler, den spiller som en drøm og har en power/kontrol ikke mange surroundforstærkere har, den spiller også rigtigt godt med musik i pure direct.. Der er MCAC kalibreringsmikrofon med og den indstiller alt til den mindste detalje, så det er kun småting man selv skal indstille Solgte denne og købte en Ma...

Translation: I had this amplifier for 9 years, bought it in KT Radio along with a set of Audiovector S3 and SC Center. The amplifier here is with B&O ICE Power modules, it plays like a dream and has a power / control not many surround amplifiers have, it also plays really well with music in pure direct. The MCAC calibration microphone is included and it sets everything to the smallest detail, so only small things you have to set yourself. Sold this and bou... More

5 out of 5 "One of my best ever purchases"
I was 17 and looking for some speakers. A friend said that a friend of a friend had some excellent speakers that he was selling for £100 which in the late 1970s was a fair amount of money (indeed I don’t remember where I got such a sum given that my Saturday job paid £5.40 for the day). The seller was Dill Katz (he is still around I believe) and I bought them unseen. Imagine my surprise when these huge speakers arrived. They weigh 84lbs each and ... More

5 out of 5 "Product of the year 1998"
What hi fi awarded this awsome player product of the year. I've had this cd player for over 20 years and recently gone for an upgrade to Marantz cd6006. I've been putting off comparing them but couldn't help listening again and wow the pioneer sounds so smooth and sweet. Listening to both I got a bit tired of the Sound of the new Marantz. Awsome CD if you can get one on Ebay you won't regret it. More
