Not quite A/V equipment, but I’m excited that a club I’m a part of is getting new (old) hardware

I mean, that’s definitely vintage shit. My mother learned basic computing on PDP computers (not as big as a PDP-10, I don’t know the model now but it at least fit in part of a room)

I’ve been looking for a 20 inch CRT TV to replace the old Trinitron I got rid of before I moved last year. Today someone on FB Marketplace was giving away a free 20 inch Panasonic Tau and I was all over that. Primo shape and even came with the remote.

Love me a TV with a bezel as thick as the pubic hair in a 70s porno.

You wanna go full CRT try to find a late 50s/early 60s model CRT with tubes that you can repair yourself. By which I mean vacuum tubes.

It might not be very big, but the picture quality can be great and the only problem would be finding a compatible RF modulator, I think.

Currently I’m having loads of fun with my CRT and my LD/DVD combo unit. Technically I can output to it using my PS3, but it’s not as cool. Going full 90s up in here

He was kind of a jerk. The more he heard about that Hitler the less he liked him.

WVHS get! It is literally double the VHS at being the size of my DVHS deck and my LD/DVD unit COMBINED.

The good: inbuilt MUSE decoder, component output
The bad: it won’t display on my TVs except for a few seconds at a time and won’t play tapes, this could be for any variety of reasons. I have exactly one WVHS tape and I don’t want to accidentally sacrifice it. I think it wrecked my off air recording of the second season of Wedding Peach, which might be the most useful thing that ever happened regarding that anime.

Just thought of a horribly offensive take on New Jersey:

I upgraded to a 4K HDR projector this weekend. It’s dope on my 120 inch fixed frame.

I mean, that is pretty awesome, but it’s not vintage… unless you hook up a LD player or a VHS to it. Let’s see what Sakura Wars looks like on that thing!

The rainforest is totally gay, tho. In the bad way.

Betamax review:

It’s about 40 lbs and doesn’t work. The tapes are from the mid to late 90s; a Nihonjin stayed true to Betamax until at least 1999. I’m going to have to learn how to repair this… that and maybe save up for an ED Beta machine that might work. Machine powered on but for whatever reason I didn’t see a menu on my TV nor would it play a tape.

I mean, even on my primitive machine I want to watch the ED Betas anyway, if they’re in English maybe a little more so. ED Beta supposedly had higher resolution than DVD, but not full HD (500 lines max compared to HD’s 1125 or 1080); unsure if it would matter on my machine should I get it to play.

I can’t even think of anything I would want to have from that era that I wouldn’t rather just have as a record lmao

Can’t believe I missed this post…

Lots of 8 tracks have 8 track exclusive quadraphonic releases. On eBay people usually sell a DVD audio of the album along with the 8 track as backup. I used to have a quad 8 track player but I guess I lost it over the years :cries:

I have 2 quad records, and they’re the most common: the Elvis record and The Doors record. You can hear SSB audio on The Doors record, and it’s a different mix from the standard singles.

I have to use my HDTV for my vintage shit because I need a new 5v adapter for my RF modulator. The result is not bad, but as I believe I’ve posted before, DVHS tapes have the best result on a modern monitor.

θ–”θ–‡γ―ηΎŽγ—γζ•£γ‚‹

Crap I think I might rather have the Bluray of Toy Story 2 instead of the VHS. There is an important problem when not viewing VHS on a CRT.
