Vintage Voltage: A Photo Feature Part 2

By Bill Leebens, Copper Magazine from PS Audio

Researching and writing theoretical and historical pieces is a lot of work, and can get a little dry. As a change of pace, I present pics from Vintage Voltage, a local meet held Sunday, March 18, which included the annual show of the Colorado Radio Collectors Club, and then branched off into guitars, hi-fi, records, test gear, and more. I’ve skipped the record vendors, as they basically all looked alike; I also skipped the guitars for the most part, as to my uneducated eye, it looked like pretty mundane stuff—apologies if it wasn’t, but how many Strats can you look at without lapsing into geeky fervor over minutiae?

My apologies for some of the pics: apparently I still had some shaky hands left over from my recent marathon cold. And now….


Hi, there! There were quite a few women in attendance—most looked rather bored.

Yep, more Mac gear, a bunch of Chinese tube amps, and a nice Tandberg receiver–the only piece I coveted at the show.

Longtime area dealer Gold Sound was there in force.

There was a fair amount of Crown at the show, including this pair from Gold Sound.

I lied. I coveted this Nak 550 portable, also. For no rational reason.

A pretty Thorens TD-150 in front of a B&O-esque desktop system.

I should’ve looked at the Ampex speakers beneath the Mitsubishi vertical turntable. They usually had good JBL drivers.

“That’s not a tube. THIS is a tube.”

A variety of test gear.

A pretty TEAC r-to-r in back of a recent Numark table.
