Perhaps some of you are wondering what is the point in repairing and restoring old audio equipment, in times of modern audio devices. Well, the answer is quite simple. Todays audio equipment from lower and middle class, doesn’t give us full sound, which vintage can provide, and playing music compressed to MP3 format is almost a crime. Continuously dropping quality, purposely overstated technical characteristics (which have nothing to do with reality) and nice appearence influence us to buy overproced low class devices, that producers offer.
Vintage equipment presents itself much differently than modern ones. Its dimensions, used materials, workmanship and overall look lead to conclusion, that it is well made and long lasting device. In most cases it is truth, however we have to remember that everything gets older. Even the best amplifier, tape recorder, or tuner need renovation from time to time. It is nothing to have 40-years old device,
which was never repaired, because with age some elements need to be replaced. It would be like buying an old car with low mileage, in which oil has never been changed. Our main goal is renewing old audio equipment to its full glory, to show its values in full, both in visual and sound quality.
