I’ve just finished overhauling this absolutely incredible Sharp VZ-2000 linear-tracking record-playing boombox!
(Reposting this article due to a website glitch.)
The Sharp VZ-2000 is one of the biggest and baddest boomboxes, from the golden era of boomboxes, the 80’s. This thing is seriously HUGE. I can hardly lift it and it took two hands to get it to this position for the photo-shoot.… Read more
Just a very quick update to say WOW and thank you. A couple of days ago my website accrued its 200,000th page view!
It seems like only yesterday that I wrote about the Liquid Audio website hitting 100K views. I never really imagined that my site would generate so much interest, but I’m thrilled that it has.… Read more

I followed that up with a matching Fidelity Research RS-141 one-piece milled aluminum headshell. These wonderful pieces of Japanese analog engineering partner up with my Jelco SA-750D tonearm, Kenwood KD-600 direct-drive turntable and (of course) Fidelity Research XF-1 M step-up transformer.… Read more
There’s not much else to add here except to say watch the video and try to grab one if you find one for sale.
The Pioneer PL-514 is an excellent, high-quality belt-drive deck from one of the big Japanese manufacturers. It puts many other belt-drives to shame. Check out my video, below, and read on for more details.… Read more
