Introduction: Vintage Audio Restorations

Over the time, a lot of vintage audio gear has passed through my hands. The truth is that over the same time, I parted with almost over 90% of this gear. While refining my tastes, I have finally settled down to a few devices that I really like and regularly use. These fine units are mainly produced in the 1970s. Thus I have decided to fully restore them. Once restored, they should be able to survive for another forty years.

This board presents only pure technical information. If you are looking for the stories, be sure to check the Personal Weblog. I wrote at least one article about almost each unit you can find restored here. But you need to look them up.

Be patient as I work very slowly. So updates will be infrequent.
