Because it just feels wrong playing
Zeppelin anything on a Zune, grab some inspiringly enduring, old-school stereo equipment from just-opened Dallas Vintage Audio. Helmed by a guy who got fed up eBay-ing the amazing finds he'd amassed via estate sales, classifieds, and, well, eBay, DVA sells working, warrantied examples of "warmer"-sounding, decades-old analog components from the likes of JBL, Yamaha, McIntosh, Revox, TEAC, DaKorder, and 8-trackers Realistic (slogan: "Time to stop being polite...and start getting Realistic"). A sampling of the goods:
Pioneer RT-909: This "Silver Face" 1960s unit's got a 150W amp, 20-band graphic equalizer, cassette deck, and, according to the proprietor, a 10" reel-to-reel regarded as one of the best ever produced, with a tape-threading mechanism so simple, Nixon could turn it on after a six-pack of Presidentes.
Sanyo GXT Series Turntable: This rare '70s model's got a high-end metallic tone arm to more clearly transfer sound, and comes complete with a built-in short-wave radio with presets, cassette deck, and internal components from Bang & Olufsen -- a name that, when slurred, states the goal of every American male since the days of Full House.
"The Double D's" These lovingly nicknamed art deco speakers feature spherical fittings wrapped in twine and mounted within twin "L"-shaped stands; if you want, they'll retrofit them with modern speaker components, though some might consider adding newfangled elements to D's nuts.
DVA currently has nearly 40 units ready to go, with just as many in the pipeline. They'll also do repairs, or sell your old equipment on consignment -- just make sure it lives up to their classic standards, or Ten Years Gone, it'll still be sitting on the shelf.
