Bought some `Vintage Gear`


On a whim and a hunch, I bought some old gear locally. 

Marantz 500 Amp
Marantz 3300 preamp
JBL L200B Speakers

The gear is 46 years be old!!!

It sounds WAY better than I thought. I had a blast tonight. Played it for wife and kids (who think this hobby is rediculous) and they were super impressed.

Anyone every had a similar experience? 


Maybe bc will get a reel to reel next

kosst is giving very good advice. I too am not a fan of vintage speakers and especially dislike the JBL "sound", but this is just my take. Significant improvements can be made with the vintage electronics, TTs not so much, with some time and a small investment.
