Also, banana terminals? I need to buy some quality RCA jacks as well (2 females and a long m/m).

Thinking to check DetourTech/RadioShak after work.

Quite a few places. Expect to pay a premium. I have 2 pairs to sell now. 1 pair Boston Acoustics CR6 & 1 pair Polk Audio R15. The Polk Audio tweeters were shot so I bougbt and replaced them with OEM units (very expensive).

See here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=715788&p=9686844#p9686844

Nothing is wrong with anything but due to circumstances beyond my control, I'm forced to downsize my system. Prices are negotiable and I personally guarantee items not DOA.

Hope to hear from you & cheers! 8)

Hey thanks zim, I'd appreciate the contact for your repair guy. Also, is that kenwood an integrated amp?

You're welcome buddy. I pm u his info. The Kenwood is not integrated. A powerful unit. My only issue is a "hiss" but it can only be heard if u put your ear real close to the speakers. I sometimes use it as my centre channel amp but other than that I consider it my spare. I piping it now :oops:

Anyone can direct me to an electrician? Problem onkyo 7.1 surround sound system turns on (lights etc) however only starts to produce sound whether in radio mode, aux or any other input after a while. It started to play after about 5 mins at the beginning when the problem was discovered but now it plays after an hour or when it feels to. Feel free to pm contact number. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Try switching the input, eq or sound modes or switching the speaker on/off switch on or off and see if the sound stutters in between, also if you raise volume to max you may hear sound faintly. It may be something similar to my issue with the speaker relays.

Most likely cold solder problem with the chip.
If you're diy, you can try to re-flow it with a heat gun or good hair dryer.

I’m hoping to collect my HSU VTF-3 MK5 later this week. Also purchased some of their old bookshelf speakers online. Hopefully they arrive soon.

Any recommendations of where to get bookshelf stands?

More old school eBay items. Really paid for the amp. Guy threw in the tape player and the receiver for free. I'll be using the Onkyo receiver in the background though (for the HDMI etc).

Now to get some speakers

Ignore the mess. Testing items...

Ok cool. Remember to clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller/s. Possible u may need to demagnetize the head/s & adjust the azimuth.

It depends on which gear. There was crappy low end stuff in that era also. What is really great about these units is that they're very easily repaired as compared to modern ones. Not to mention they last hella lot longer.

Lucky to have had that.
If u decide to buy, make sure u have a good money set aside for repairs / servicing.

I'd advise against the tape deck tho.
See to get 1 with full logic controls, at least 2 heads, various biasing for different tapes and Dolby B & C (at least). Unless u just buying to have it
