In use, a restored Citation 1 & 2 amp and preamp from the early 1960s. I also have a Scott 299 amp (1958) and 330B tuner (1956). JPG or maybe it's the Mc Intosh MC225 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-82PNJ1vt TOc/UDq6VYNig6I/AAAAAAAADw4/N5Bh YQgvt Lo/s640/Mcintosh%20mc225-web1Well, if we're talking audio equipment and not old antique radios.... A sequential serial numbered pair of Stephens P52A 15" coaxial speakers. Have them mounted in a pair of home built Karlson cabinets that look terrible. have my father's Mc Intosh MA230, Scott 310-D tuner with the separate stereo multiplexer and Garrard Type A turntable.

The 135 has a volume control, loudness switch, record-playback switch, and a stereo selector for monaural records, stereo, stereo reverse, and channels A and B.
The back panel also has two power receptacles for your two mono amplifiers, so you can turn them on and off from the Stereo-dapter.
I have a new Ortofon Cadenza Blue cartridge that will be mounted on it in a few days, the very first moving coil cartridge to ever be mounted on my m505A tonearm in all those years. I still have the Marantz 1030 Integrated amp that I bought in 1972. Actually, all my stuff is vintage from thrift stores or flea markets: 1973. Yamaha p550 turntable with 1984 signet A/T cartridge. Not sure which is older, but my dad's first system when I was a toddler: AR XA turntable w/ Shure V15 Type 2 AR 2 speakers Dyna PAS-2 preamp Dyna Stereo 70 amp They all still work perfectly.
I was proud as a Peacock the day it arrived, a big achievement for me at age 14. Bob, this is my dad's XA, I refurbished it a couple of years ago and made a new curly maple base for it.
