Vintage Voltage 3

Vintage Voltage: A Photo Feature Part 3

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….

A rare M&K sub w/ intact driver next to a rare Phase Linear 400 that hadn’t burst into flames. ;->

Spica TC-50s and a big Yamaha receiver.

Daulquist DQ-10s in the rarely-seen white grillecloth. Meh.

Huh: a rare Phase Linear 700 that hadn’t burst into flames!

Radios from the ’20s to the ’50s.

Testing a Crown amp. Hmmm—filter caps bad, maybe?

The once-ubiquitous Zenith 500 portable, with all original packaging. Wow.

A little bit of everything.

They don’t make test gear like that any more. Look at the oak case!

This 1930 Emerson had beautiful casework.
