Screw that, I’m ecstatic.
Last week, I headed to all the thrift stores in my area, always on the lookout for a good deal. And I found a very rare Nikko integrated amp, for $17. I shot to the moon, tested it and bought it in ten minutes. I ran home, hooked it up and fell in love (the hum distortion is quite high, so some of my headphones don’t agree with it too well). Whatever. It’s awesome.
Today, I headed out to visit a goodwill that was opening in my area, to find out that it opens tomorrow. Hmm…
So I headed to the local salvation army (where I found the amp last week), and scoured around. Nothing caught my eye before I passed by the furniture section. Sitting there, on the ground, were some high end speakers… So I looked at them, read the name and serials, and walked away.
I hit a couple other thrift stores… and those speakers couldn’t get off my mind. So I went back, tested them, looked them over, bought and brought them over. I gave them a bath, a nice look over and tested them thoroughly.
Problem lies in where to put them. They take up half of my desk, which is already overloaded with the amp, my monitor, my old speakers, headphones and papers. I might make some stands for them. I wish they came with their factory ordered stands.
