The sound that system gave me was sensational. I miss it more than I can say. I also have, back home in NY, over 300 albums that are near mint, as they have only been played once. I would tape them on the first play and then play the tapes.
I'm not sure what brand my first stereo was, but it looked something like the one WCO first posted. I wasn't into huge speakers, woofers, etc. Just needed something to play albums. Had it all through college.
Here's a corner of one of my college dorm rooms. This was the "shared" space with my roommates, but the stereo, TV, and fridge were all mine. Pretty cool, eh? Love the rabbit ears and speaker wires!
Can't believe I took a picture of my college dorm room, kept it all these years, and actually found it.
I had one of these with the big plastic top, what life saver. I can't count the times that lid saved the carpet after a long night at the OBI, Speaks or some other drink fest where I needed something quick to puke in. wow.
