Well! Today is a day of joy. Back in 1999 my dad gave me his old stereo amplifier. He raved on about how it was top of the line in the 70's so he never parted with it. So I plugged it all in, but it had major problems. The left speaker would go out very frequently, requiring you to turn the balance fully to that speaker, maxing out the volume and smashing down on the poor machine before swiftly turning the volume back down again. It's very loud after all! This thing was built to last, I must have hit the damn thing about 5 times a day! Anywho. I fixed it today. Finally. Turned out the amp wasn't being earthed correctly. Also fixed up a constant static noise that I just put down to "running noise". so woo! I could never get rid of it because it looks so retro and sounds absolutely stunning (when working). My folks Sony hi-fi stack thing, my mates JBL Creature 2 speakers. it's all poppycock to this (with Wharfedale Speakers). I mean it'd probably go for £10 on eBay. But still. Anyways! I'm keeping my amp, what are you keeping?
