1974 or 1975, I believe. At some point they revised the KV-9200 and replaced the old optional "Quick Start" system (basically just a standby cathode heater) with the newer "Econoquick" system which allowed for quicker starting without the standby cathode heater. Mine is the earlier version. Takes about a minute to warm up from a cold start.

bubble memory.jpg
238KB, 500x721px
>Bubble memory is a type of non-volatile computer memory that uses a thin film of a magnetic material to hold small magnetized areas, known as bubbles or domains, each storing one bit of data. The material is arranged to form a series of parallel tracks that the bubbles can move along under the action of an external magnetic field. The bubbles are read by moving them to the edge of the material where they can be read by a conventional magnetic pickup, and then rewritten on the far edge to keep the memory cycling through the material.

This shit is just too fucking nuts. Storing data as magnetically charged bubbles that you can move around. Not only that, but apart from industry applications they actually put this kind of memory into two pioneer consumer laptops in the early 80s -and- into a few Konami arcade cabinets in the mid 80s, including the original release of the iconic Gradius.

It's because everyone "knows" about it. I've noticed it here too. Back in 2008 when I started I was finding tube radios etc for pennies on the dollar. Now its near impossible PLUS Goodwill and other stores now price check EVERYTHING and anything that looks "vintage" gets marked up. Not so "thrifty" anymore.

For example. I was at a Volunteers of America once, and saw a decent looking tape deck from mid 70s or so. I look inside, and BOTH plastic capstan/reel grippers were broken. aka the whole thing was literally useless. I look at the price. $39.99 bullshit.

Lastly, this stereo console is probably the best find I'll ever have. Near mint condition, it had a blown left channel transistor when I bought it. They only wanted $25 for it. I've used it ever since and it sounds great.

All vacuum tube amplifiers. They still get used though, maybe enough to not be considered obsolete.

Yeah. I started in 2008 and thrifting was already getting tough, and it just keeps getting gradually worse.

Unlike Goodwill, my local Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity don't tend to overprice things. Habitat for Humanity also discounts things very quickly when they aren't selling, and even just gives the stuff away after a while.

I still find some good stuff for cheap once in a while, even at Goodwill, but the finds are very few and far between. I managed to score these Ace Staplers for a buck a piece at Goodwill this year.

I've actually been getting into tools recently and haven't found much worth buying locally yet. The Flea markets were full of nothing but piles of junky and/or overpriced tools.

I've seen a lot of nice vintage adding machines at thrift stores, but don't have much use or space for those.

Unfortunately I have to resort to eBay for a lot of the stuff I want.

If you have analog cable, then you can connect to it directly and receive a handful of channels. You are supposed to use an adapter (still available at Radio Shack and maybe some other stores) to go from the 75 ohm coax cable cable to the 300 ohm twin terminals.

The best way to do it is to use a VCR because any relatively modern VCR will be able to tune all the analog cable channels.

If you have digital cable, you could also connect a provider cable box to receive all your digital channels.

For me, its mostly obsolete. I tend to buy it for the aesthetics. Each era has its own charm.
I use the receiver for radio and tv/movie watching, but honestly I have a 5.1 receiver in the closet that I pop out for serious movie watching.
However, I do occassionally make cassette tapes for my car, since it's older and has a tape slot. I have a batch of Type II and Type IV cassettes just for that purpose.
Most of the records I have are just pure fun/basic stuff. classic rock and etc. I do have some rare releases and alternate mixes that never made it out of vinyl, those are fun to listen to.
As for the Reel to Reel. its mostly useless to me, but If I come across tape at stores I'll pick it up for fun.

I used to do that with my Akai, but my car's cassette deck failed and I figured I'd install an FM Modulator and make the transition to digital music in the car.

You're welcome. Here's a picture of the thing you'll need for connecting modern coax cables to those old style antenna connectors. That will be your starting point for connecting various things. A VCR is the next thing to have for the cable tuner and they can also serve as an RF modulator to connect game consoles and other devices to the TV.

>>45473202
The surround is fine because it's not foam. It makes a metal on metal vibrating sound whenever it's playing which from what I've read is due to a misaligned voice coil. As far as I know there's no way to fix it, at least nothing reasonable for a fairly low dollar speaker.

I had a stockpile of brand new TDK SAs, Maxell XLs, Sony Type IIs, etc. which I picked up cheap before they got rare, but I recently sold them all because I figured I'd never get back into recording. Might regret it someday, but I just don't have the space to keep stuff that I might never use. I still have to get rid of a lot of stuff.
>>
>>45473288
bummer man. it makes me sad when tech becomes terminally ill like that. I try not to keep too many tapes, but 1 or 2 of each kind is good enough for me. Still looking out for some rare Type IVs in the wild. some thrift stores mark it at 10cents and toss it with the rest of the cassettes..

I kept a handful which I had previously recorded on so I'll always have some for testing and playing around with, and I'm still holding on to my Akai deck for now. I should probably get it out and run it since it's been sitting unused for a while.

The only Type IV I ever found was a Denon which I got at Goodwill for a buck. I sold it along with the whole lot, but I think that one was worth about $15-20 by itself.

I rarely see any cassette tapes at all these days. There used to be dozens (mostly pre-recorded stuff, but occasional sealed recording tapes thrown in) there at all times. I think there will be always some enthusiasts who keep the old technology alive. Someone was happy to buy all my blank tapes and I hope they're making some use of them.

>>45473451
Good on you man. When I sold one of my tape decks the guy that came to get it was trying to tell me there was about to be a huge cassette revival. He said he bought 10 different decks in the past month and boxes of tapes from liquidated stores. That was 2 years ago. Revival? haha Maybe..

The contacts on mercury-free relays start to erode after ten thousand or so switches which makes the resistance go up. This was never a big issue for audio equipment since those circuits tend not to switch their relays every ten minutes or anything, and now we've got solid state components without that problem.

>>
>>45480187
It's a hell of a lot easier to desolder and solder in a new component with hand wiring than it is to replace most components on a circuit board.

New electronics are only "modular" in the sense that you can easily replace a circuit board - which means you basically replace dozens, hundreds, or thousands of components at once just because one component failed.

Through hole is a piece of piss, even SMD is easier than some of the old shitwired things.

Or you can take the board out to work with on a proper surface without a rat's nest of wires and cardboard dividers getting in the way.

It's a shame that minis died.

I remember seeing this website someone on /vr/ posted about the schematics to make your own authentic S/360, I mean no parts, it's not a kit, parts would have to be custom ordered, it would probably be like 50,000 but there are NONE left in existence and working condition. If someone made one and had it up and running for demos, that'd attract some people to his hackerspace or public collection or what ever if he wanted that.

12 G3's and 10 G4's.
As far as I can tell only major problem's 2 of the G3's have bad CRT's, everything else NetBoots just fine.
I've been playing with a G4 for the last couple days, they're a hard thing to master but once you've worked out their favorite little codecs they're fucking boss.
Have to wonder how well a G3'd fare with the video this thing's pumping.

Also, I don't know if it's just because it's been so long since I've used a ball mouse but I got my hands on a puck and it's the best bloody thing I've ever felt in my life.

Here's my precious in action.
There are many like it but this one's special because it's mine.
If I can get OSX 10.4 server running on something I plan on turning everything into a xgrid cluster to render on, but I kinda doubt apple'd be too happy with giving me a key.
Still, I'll try anyway. What's the worst that could happen?
Anyway, at first I was thrown off, thinking how could anyone have ever possibly gotten media work done on these, but as I use them more they start feeling more and more powerful.

Yup! Concerto 9U.

I'm really aiming for a Grundig Majestic 7000 or a Telefunken Sonata.

I've left both of those slip through my hands because instead of telling the dude "I'll take it!" my idiot ass started asking questions like "does it power up?" in the meantime someone else snagged it. Felt terrible after that.

I saw a beautiful Blaupunkt console in an antique store around five years ago. It was working and they would let it play in the store. It sat for a few years before it finally sold, even though they didn't want all that much for it.

Still, it was cool to see because European consoles are quite rare in the US, for the obvious reason of shipping cost. European table radios are relatively common, which is somewhat surprising because the US didn't seem to import much of anything in the mid century years.
>>

My neon light only works when I turn it upside down, and even then it only buzzes on intermittently.

1.) how do you fix it?
2.) does it make that much of a difference if it works?

For Zenith that was their death, too many overseas sales that they lost money on it. I don't know much about money and running business to know how this could damage a company, but they began limiting the sales overseas. Then they realized that the overseas sales were mostly all their income, they got closer and closer to bankruptcy.

I love my German sets, some Nazi or a Jewish had it and listened to war news on it. Or some man somewhere came home really happy with his new radio to listen to tunes and weather and what not. There's no limits to what could have been broadcasted through these things and that alone makes the prices worth it, to me at least.

Although, I have heard some spooky shit come out of my German one. I'm not one to believe in spirits, but I can't explain what went on with it.

Sounds like you have a loose contact or something. The light is taped right there on top of the display, just take the thing apart carefully (pop out the front panel and the screws are on the bottom.
Any generic 120v neon panel indicator (radioshack sells one) will be pretty much the same lamp. Crack its colored housing and it's just a regular neon lamp which you can use to replace the one in your clock. If it even needs replacing, check and make sure it's all making good contact first.
To me it makes a huge difference if it works, because I keep it next to my bed so I can look at it at night. I like the white numbers with the nice dim orange glow.

Just a few more things to do before the rack is all hooked up and done!

The ADM31 terminal needs resetting, and I'm probably going to pull the top left Apple IIe for disk image copying in the next week or so. I'm thinking of putting OS9 back on the iMac DV on the bottom right. Might be hooking the 17" ViewSonic P775 to the Dual Pentium II 400 running BeOS (or Haiku, if it will take the install this time). Not sure about the IBM CRT, that sucker has such a low resolution it barely works with anything (ideas?).
