Hi friends, you’re going to want to see this one. In this video, I run through my recent service, repair and overhaul of one of the biggest, meanest monster receivers ever – the Sansui G-9000DB Pure Power DC Stereo Receiver!
Yes, this thing is officially silly, 170 watts per channel of oval capacitor silliness! In this video, I basically run through the whole process from first unveiling the beast, to final testing.… Read more
This quick vinyl goodness update is for all vinyl and / or Opeth lovers out there. I’ve just received some fabulous new 180 gram, virgin, coloured and clear double-vinyl pressings.

A full article on the Marantz 2330 will drop in the next few days, but can you believe people started offering to buy this baby as soon as I posted the video!… Read more
I’m reluctant to use the word ‘sexy’ when it comes to hi-fi gear because, well – it just feels weird. If I were to use it though, it would be about this baby Sony TA-4650 VFET amplifier.
What can one say after working one of these stunning Sony TA-4650 VFET integrated amplifiers? I really fell for this little beauty and came to understand why so many people treasure these amps.… Read more
