Vintage Stereo Equipment

I just joined a Vintage Stereo Equipment group on Facebook and I went searching online to see if I could find my first real setup. Found them all except the turntable, and that’s because I don’t remember what kind I had.
Pioneer 424 receiver. A big 12 watts per channel. This baby really pumped out the power.
Acosti Phase Monitor Speakers Phase 1. For the money, these speakers were excellent. They were made by a small company in Vermont. I bought all this stuff from Crazy Eddie. I just found out that they were the main distributors of these speakers. 6 inch woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter. I think they might have been one of the first to have the dome tweeter.
Akai CS-702D tape deck. To tape with Dolby or without? That is the question.

Crying Soccer Fans

I’ve been watching the World Cup. Never seen so many crying players and fans in my life. Look, half the teams that play lose. If your team loses, there’s no need to turn on the waterworks.  I bet most of these crying fans are the one that shove it in your face when their team wins. You lost, deal with it. It’s not the end of the world. Mickey Mantle don’t pay your rent.
