Easily the best thrift store find I've ever made. This incredibly awesome and beefy amp did not require any servicing at all—I'm just glad somebody decided to donate it instead of tossing it in the dump.
I found a pair of Minimus 77 bookshelf speakers unopened in the original boxes. Replaced the crossover capacitors just for kicks, and they're better than new.
This amp was sitting in my basement for almost a year before I finally decided to get it up and running again. Only needed a few bucks worth of parts.
I do an unboxing of a mint condition forty plus year old Marantz 2230 receiver, including all original packaging. Truly a sight to behold.
A very handsome matching Sansui integrated amplifier and tuner that I snagged for cheap last spring. The tuner has a cool motorized auto-search function.
This Kenwood was a crusty mess, and several components were fried, but I was happy that I could bring it completely back from the dead.
I restored this amp for a friend of mine, including a complete recap and replacement of other miscellaneous parts. The job turned out to be a complete success, and I'm sad I can't keep it for personal use.
I did a decent amount of repair work to this Kenwood receiver, compared to my usual restoration routine. And I remembered to actually take photos of the whole process this time. Lots of photos!
I picked up this turntable at a thrift store for only $15—the first time I've ever found anything remotely worth keeping at a thrift store. It needed a good cleaning and a few repairs, but nothing too major.
Another vintage Sony receiver that I couldn't pass up. It didn't require much work at all, just a good cleaning and one burned out bulb. Unfortunately I couldn't find much information on this model.
