Alright, about a week ago I got a new to me, very nice stereo.
There's a vintage Harmon Kardon a500 amp, and a pair of polk s15 speakers, hooked up to a new (and decidedly mediocre) audio technica LP-60.
I have a new table on the way, but until that time, this will get the job done.
The amp does it's job, and has a big warm sound.
The speakers have enough bottom end to rattle the windows, without being boomy. They're actually really open and natural sounding.
Basically every night since then, I've listened to one or more records in their entirety.
I started with Chet Baker, followed by The Beatles. Pepper and Abbey Road. I did a thread about that on my other account: https://retro.social/@ajroach42/106129236347055584
Since then, I've listened to The 13th floor elevators (psychadelic sounds of and Bull of the Woods), Thee American Revolution (self titled, from the giuy from The Apples in Stereo, but Crunchy), the first Alabama Shakes album (it *does the thing*) and several blues records.
Tonight, I think I'm going to go for Tangerine Zoo.
