Three Turntables OG DJ

This is an amazing early console for spinning 78rpm.
Times they have changed. I don't know why this pisses me off but it does. This must have been how Delia Derbyshire or Louis & Bebe Barron felt about the keyboard / synth. When someone says there is going to be a DJ I still expected turntables and f'ing vinyl not this pig abortion of whatever the hell it is supposed to be. The other night a DJ was playing and he had two of these things and not even a token turntable.

I might have more distaste for this than autotune. 
Rant over.

Racon Tweeter Early Hi-Fi

Early wide range Racon tweeter advert. I tried finding an actual example but this must be a rare one. At first I thought it was a Western Electric copy.

Tannoy - The name says it all - Advert

 When I was first reading Douglas Adams it confused me that he referred to speakers as Tannoy as if there was no other speaker. Once I learned of the history I understood. Guy Fountain is one of my audio hero's.

Cunningham CX-112A

I've started hoarding 112A tubes especially Cunningham as I like that extra mica support. They must have made a ton of these. I'm still going to hoard while I can.
The first two test in the 80's and appear unused. Two of them have the same datasheet.

 The third had these extra long sheets wrapped around the tubes packing materials.

Hate it when they have labels. This one test at 70.

 I snagged this Silvertone for $2 on ebay and it test high as well.

Paul And Moon Boots

Paul looks hopped up on the goofballs here. This would have been a good day to hang out.
I don't usually fashion critique but what the hell is up with moon boots lol.... 
To make matters worse they are still available.

Razin And Musatoff

I stumbled upon the work of Razin And Musatoff this week. Their design aesthetics are great. They build more than hifi amplifiers as there is a mix of tesla coil and shortwave gear. Very beautiful work.

Single Eneded SE33.1


I've been studying old radio aesthetic design thinking I would use some of that for inspiration for tube amp builds. The result is realizing many others including friends have already been there and done that.

Chek out the Razin and Musatoff website.

The B-52's - Give Me Back My Man

This could be Kate's finest. Byron might even like it since Fred doesn't sing. I didn't realize this had a video. Glad I have MFSL LP of their first album and Wild Planet.

Too make up for the lack of Fred here is a live version of Quiche Loraine
