  2. One of the most beautiful songtress in the field of smooth listening soul / jazz ...
  3. Yes, yes, now the truth comes to light......Bosch, by the way, is still a German company headquartered in Munich
  4. Agree ...one of the best british trip hop bands ever .....
  5. Reminds very much of the music film " Floyd Live in Pompeii from 1972
  6. He´s a dutch jazz musician, born in Hilversum. Excellent flute player and nice jazz funk riffs....
  7. Would be nice . Gonn´a do it ...need some inspiration for my record collection.
  8. You hit the nail on the head @Dave1291. What a musical journey with the refurbished tube mono amps. These have never sounded so fantastic. Tested some new tubes and used ECC 88 from Siemens in Munich and 5814A from Philips USA; 829B Tetrode from RCA ,GEZ 34 rectifier from Siemens and 12BH7A from "EI" former Yugoslavia, I also still have to test here. Since I had to take a longer community break to listen to me with the new tubes. Since we had a lot of snow, it all fit together. Now the spring comes back, we had already 68 Fahrenheit in the last few days, we spend much time outside......
  9. The Teac X 300 R is a autoreverse ( bi -directional ) machine as well as the Pioneer 707
  10. Forgot a third option, the Poineer 707, but it´s a lovers machine and very rare to get, so if available this one won´t be cheap.
  11. @rockhound I´m still a R2R Lover and owned many since my age of 12 years.The most beautiful and best sounding machine is still in use. It´s a Tandberg TD 20 A. As your son is driving 7-1/2 inch tapes and not 10,43 inch with NAB Adaptar tapes I would like to give you two recommondations based on my own experience in my youth. There is the Philips NA 4506 which is a exciting peace of high tec R2R for 7-1/2 and the TEAC X 300 R ( looks similar to models from AKAI ) Of course I would buy them sec. hand fully revised only.
  12. @MeloManiac Hi Ivan ....just a quick chimm in to clearify some basics....Your TT is limited for better pick ups than a Ortofon 2MBlue or the OM 20. The tonearm is not designed to carry heavier pick ups than 7 gramms. Of course the are MC´s in this weight class available , but even entry class only. So you better keep your eye on a real MM phono pre like a Graham Slee GramAmp2 for good 200 € ( see details in the link, scroll down ) . Than upgrate your TT with the Ortofon 2M Blue like you attended to do it a couple of weeks ago before you bought the CX 300 Tube amp. I think this is the only and real listenable upgrate with you new tubeamp.
  13. It´s a Tandberg TD 20 A / 4 Track with 19,75 cm/ sec. Speed. Built in 1978, First Owner !
