What was in your first system?

Yes! He's packaged it up and is having it shipped tomorrow! Now fingers crossed it doesn't arrive in pieces! Can't wait to set it up! I have a little Carver jar in my safe that I throw a few $$  in from gig proceeds whenever I play (the wife actually lets me keep 10% of the money I make LOL). Was saving up to buy a minidsp 4x10 but couldn't pass up the M-500t which I hear is one of the best sounding Carver amps!

Empty Jar but big smile! :D

 

This will be me soon!

Congratulations! You might have to recap it to make it sound it’s best, but hopefully you can enjoy its great sound.......grin

My first purchase of any real stereo gear...VOTTs. Bought them in '72 even before I had an amp, receiver or anything...Hot Stuff!!!      

What I consider my first "real system" was what I purchased after a month of working my first job out of college in 1982.  I was still living at home, so I had some income....grin.  It was a Yamaha R-

As the title implies - besides the requisite boom-boxes in the 80’s, my first “real”(!) system was based around a Sanyo Quadraphonic receiver playing through a pair of Sony “transmission line” speaker

My first stereo was a hand me down solid state console from around 1970 that my grandparents had bought.  It made it's way into my bedroom when I was maybe 10 or 11.  I remember their best friends bought me a pair of Koss HV1A's for Christmas that year.  (I was a jammer already)  Next was a Zenith Allegro all in one unit that was quite fancy for its time.  I think my grandparents bought that one for me but can't recall.  Now the first stereo I bought for myself was a Technics SU-8055 integrated amp, Realistic Lab-420 turntable, and a pair of Sansui SU-57 speakers.  Nothing too crazy.  This was maybe 1980-ish?

 

Found a picture of the Zenith.  It was pretty cool for it's time.  Right at the end of the era of silver faced equipment.

My first rig was B&O 6000 Turntable, 6000 Receiver and S-75 Speakers.

 

I saw the setup in a shop window and I knew I had to purchase the set.

I walked in and financed for 24 months. 

The Turntable was great, the Receiver and Speakers looked good, sounded good but not great.

Stock Pictures.

 too far to drive easily  butt not that far in the big picture of course   as discussed via pm (i missed this post before now somehow)

Montreal area would be a good 8+ hours each way from me aprox.

 

Sadly as discussed as well it was simply way beyond my finances..  and for the for seeable future as well

(even more s since we talked  need need rubber for our wheels very soon.. so there's another chunk!   Non-winter tires are beyond the wear bar an running winters in non-winter ish a baaaaddddd idea for many reasons)

My first system was based off of a  mid to late 70's Pacific Stereo House Brand Receiver: "Quadraflex" (unsure of model number although I sold it to a co-worker in late 80's = it caught his house on fire / we are still Friends), BIC Turntable (don't recall model number) with Micro Acustics 2002e Cartridge, Roger Sound Lab (RSL) Studio Monitors / Walnut (Still have them,  still Beautiful and Sound Great = using them as Rear Surrounds) &  TEAC A-4300SX Reel to Reel (also still have).

That would have been a great deal, $380.00 cnd = $285.00 usd

I live in Ottawa Canada, only 2hrs away from Montreal. In the last 2 years I have purchased 3 different items

for members, and then shipped the item to them.

Next time you see an add like that, think of me.
