Hey, that's a pretty sweet set up!

Karen (formerly kcinnova)

You just brought back memories of me buying my first stereo (yes, with equalizer).
This one goes to ELEVEN!

unmitigated me

Obsolete? Not at my house, baby! High fidelity music is the best kind. iPods are for the car.

This is a really cute post!!!! I remember those days too...sweet memories.

Smalltown Me

My husband was one of those guys. And he had the 6 foot tall speakers, too.


We still have lot of that stuff in the house, the rest is in the garage along with probably thousands of dollars worth of guitar, amplifier and other musical equipment. Two years ago he finally found a turntable he wanted then bought, without consulting me, a cabinet for it, the records we have kept and some other stuff that is so complicated that I never use it because I can't even find the on button.

Oh, and the speakers in our living room are about 4 feet tall.


And you've just reminded me that I don't know what an equalizer is or does. I'm sure I MIGHT have had one in NY, but your remembering is my forgetting!!


Mr. Fix-It had a Ford Pinto? So did I! I loved that car and it saw so many crazy experiences through college (and even up to when we got married)that if it could have talked...well, you know... I finally junked it because what we got for it for scrap was more than the cost of parking tickets attached to it - ha!

We are so sad we got rid of our Marantz turntable:(
My boyfriend/fiancee/now husband of 30 years had a red Datsun 180b with a sunroof he installed himself, 6 speakers, orange shag pile on the dash and a mini disco ball hanging from the mirror.
Yes he did.
...but that's ok, because he remembers the gold lamé knickerbockers I wore to my 21st.
Those were the days.

Little Miss Sunshine State

We were living parallel lives! When we were engaged we often went on "dates" to the stereo store, listening to all the equipment, trying to decide what he would buy.

We had a Ford Mustang.

Green Girl In Wisconsin

I remember the days of big speakers...


I have those 6 foot speakers in my living room and the receiver and equalizer have been relegated to the basement, but I can guarantee they will NEVER be thrown out. I think our husband's may be related :)

I couldn't even fathom what was happening or why. All I knew was that a plane flew into the tower. I didn't know details.
