Dusted off some old equipment, converted my electronic "junk room" into a small mancave, listening to CDs on a Harmon Kardon CDR-20 through the Yamaha RX-V663 set on Pure Direct into the Polk Monitor 10Bs. Sounds surprisingly good, I forgot how stereo can sound so full, especially in a small room.
I find it fun to recycle old equipment, and hate to let go of things before I'm sure their lifecycle is complete. Case in point the VP150, I think I'll hang onto it, not sure what use I will put to it but I have a feeling if I sell it I'll wish I hadn't.
