New Member from Maryland

Post by mfwatkin on Mon May 08, 2017 8:30 pm

Hello, I just joined this forum.

I am an electrical engineer by trade, but have recently gotten into restoring old electronics, audio equipment in particular. I have a mid-60s Philco Hifi console without the guts and am re-building. So far I have built new speakers and am working on the enclosure. This system will have digital components with the 60s façade though I am considering an vacuum tube pre-amp.

I have also recently acquired a few older items from my grandfather's estate and would like to get them restored to its original working condition. These items include a Table-top Fiesta tube AM/FM radio, an early-century Victrolla console, and three turn-tables. I love the look of the older radios and love the way they sounds when they are working. My work as an EE has been predominantly with newer technology but would like to get some hands-on experience with tube-based technology.
