Remnant of the Past
A few of our team members walked into a system installation today. We were swapping out the old with the new. To our surprise, the Client had several components that actually lasted for 20+ years! We have to admit, we are impressed that there are still products that stand the test of time. The item that we’re speaking of were the Adcom multi-channel amplifiers. Our team removed the old 20+ year old Lexicon pre-amp, which burned out due to power surge. Instead, we installed a new Marantz AV7703 as drop-in replacement.
To our surprise, the old amps just fired up immediately. It played beautifully through some tower speakers that were also 20+ years old. It’s just too bad that not much new products these days, are of high quality at a reasonable prices.
Remember folks! If someone says you have to change your old multi-channel amplifiers just because they are old, get a second opinion from someone who is willing to be honest. Don’t fall for people who just see you as a dollar sign.
