The reel to reel my dad bought before I was born is in far better shape than I am. I was told his original speakers didn't make it back from Germany though, but I am sure they would have lasted about as long.
I'm trying to remember if I've ever seen a Reel to Reel in real life before. Pretty much everyone I knew had records and cassettes before CDs. Grandma still had an 8 track but never listened to it.

I got one in Japan on my first cruise. Had it for years. Maybe I'll dig up a pic of it. It was a Teac, iirc.

Found it! Even has the custom cabinet I made for all the goodies. Circa 1972 on Oahu. I also had Bose 501 speakers at the time.

That stereo system in the top left looks a lot like the one we had when I was a kid. It was unfortunately fried by a lightning strike in 91. Its replacement is still in use by my parents, with a digital to analog adapter, so they can watch movies with the previously mentioned speakers.

My dad still had the speakers that he bought when I was a baby when he passed. I garage sold them for $25. He had an 8-track, as well as a reel-to-reel, I don't remember when he added the cassette and phonograph players.

I'm quite sure it was Teac too.

This is what it looked like. I got in trouble for touching it a few times.

Is anyone else here disappointed when "You Really Got Me" doesn't follow "Eruption"? Or is it just me?
I combined those two tracks. Even when I shuffle my playlist they play together. Same thing with Intruder/Pretty Woman, Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid, We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions, and others.

Come to think to think of it, it probably was Pioneer. CRS, and shit.
