Just a very quick update, to welcome in 2018, and to share this stunning piece of vintage hi-fi gear.
I think we can all agree, it’s pieces like this beautiful Philips RH 750 receiver, with its warm tones and smile-inducing vintage looks, that make classic 70’s gear so desirable. Seriously, this is one of the best looking pieces of hi-fi gear I’ve ever worked on!
You could pay a hundred bucks for one of these old girls and you’d have the basis for a great little hi-fi system. How does it sound? Good! It’s warm-sounding, quite the antidote to much of today’s lean, bright sounding gear. Not an op amp to be seen and a lovely discrete output stage. Old-school hi-fi like this is a real pleasure to work on, to own and listen to.
Maintenance on gear like this isn’t expensive, and well worth doing. Freshly serviced, she is purring and will no doubt bring many more years of enjoyment to her owner. So if ever there was an example of where giving your cherished hi-fi gear a little TLC, rather than putting it out on the verge and buying something new and awful is a smart move, this is it!
