Change of pace from all the high rent district stuff you lucky guys have been posting. A lowly Realistic receiver from back when they had good stuff made. (actually a MOSFET design). A snake oil salesman conned me into buying this. Dont regret it at all. It also heats the room up nicely on cold winter nights. @Woofers and TweetersFits in well in my manloft.

😂

 

Glad it's keeping you warm. After paying for the gas because you conned me into bringing it to you, then, having me over a barrel, raking me across the coals on the price, my date and I were able to afford to share a breakfast sandwich. 

 

I will try to be there to buy it back, before next winter.

 

My largest regret of that trip is not buying Matthew's Cherry Chorus.

From all that I have heard Realistic made some really good receivers back in the day. Enjoy. 

Rumor was they were made in the same factory 

Really is a nice unit. I might put a Pioneer sticker over the Realistic. (yes, I am that superficial)

Word was you were in town visiting you daughter any way. All the cash was gravy. And you stole a license plate off our parking lot while there too.

I thinks @Shaun K ended up with those Chorus.

Stole? Lol

Your selective senility is showing. 

 

Actually, I was on a mission to do several things on that trip.  Transporting the part that you made to Matthews was just more icing.  I ended up buying an amp and a CD player from him while I was there.

I have seller's remorse on some things, those Chorus I have passed up deal remorse. If I wasn't 3 states away in a car already packed for two on vacation,  I would have grabbed them.

I remember when you could walk in to Radio Shack and buy these.

Yup, still have them here.  Not currently in use, been thinking of selling them...but I just picked up a nice Denon amp so I want to hear them again before I make any rash decisions :D

I used to have that exact same HK amp and pre-amp combo (actually had two of the amps) -- bought them new.  They were part of my very first "good" stereo system I owned.

Jeff Rowland Model 5 -- the photo below isn't mine, but is identical to the amp I used to own.  It's probably been at least 20 years since I sold it and didn't have any photos.  It's 100 pounds of clean solid-state power!
