My wife is out of town nursing her little sister so I used the kitchen table as a work space, and brought an old project back to life.
Glowing in the dark, playing Sting's  Ten Summoner's Tales.
A Fisher 400 receiver from the mid to late 60's.  All US made, all tubes.

That's a beauty!

I'm pretty happy with the way it turn out.  The most labor intensive thing was getting all the cigarette smoke out of it!  I swabbed all surfaces, inside and out, with naptha then alcohol.  Cleaned the pots, all tube sockets, changed a few caps.  Not bad for a $100 find.  I still need to do a more thorough restoration.... one day.

How did you rip it from the SACD? I have a few hybrid SACD titles, but no SACD player. I'd like to do this as well.

I'm listening to the soothing sounds  :thumb: of Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden's "The Number of the Beast" album from 1982!  FLAC from a CD reissue. I once had the cassette but I don't know where that ended up...



Are there any hard rock / NWOBHM fans here?

The double bass drums will put your subwoofers to good use!

Admittedly, it took me quite a while to appreciate Miles Davis, but I think my ears have finally matured enough to grok his music. I began the morning listening to a TIDAL mix of mellow Jazz songs from various artists. The third or fourth song was Generique by Miles Davis. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to listen to the entire "Ascenseur pour l'echafaud" album. WOW!  :shock: Holy shit!! This is fantastic.
