Pioneer 50 - Vintage table, wood base, circa 1973

The 1970's produced some of the best looking and highest quality audio/stereo components we have seen. Many live on today and they produce high quality analog sound than can be achieved via modern (and often more cheaply made) counterparts.

This fully automatic turntable from Pioneer has become a classic and is highly sought after. Perhaps the best looking of the Pioneer line, this late 1970's rock solid unit continues to provide superior sound and reliable performance.

Grundig! Perhaps the king of radio consoles. Doubtful we will ever see this type of quality in home audio ever again.


Aviators are eternal!

Aviators are eternal!

What is it about aviator sunglasses? In style for the past 50 years in one form or another they have never been more popular. Look for glasses lens as a mark of quality.

Boombox rock!

Boomboxes, ghetto blasters...have made a comeback. Items such as the one in the picture sell in excess of $300 on Ebay. Rarity? Nostalgia? Portability? You tell me.


Vintage headphones

Vintage headphones

Pioneer, Marantz, Sony...The Japanese made some killer stereo headphones in the 1960s and 1970s. They simply sound better than what you are going to get today because they actually have speakers mounted inside. Heavier? yes but, so is the sound dude!
