We moved my mother into assisted living about a month ago. My sister and I found many photos she had kept these many years. This photo is of me at about 19 years old posing in front of one of my first audio systems. I believe that I was in college at the time because I remember that Biology book in the lower right hand corner of the photo. This was a MONO system. I made a large 3 way speaker out of an old TV cabinet. Near my right hand is the crossover for the speaker with the tweeter and mid range L-Pads. Behind me is the (unidentified but I believe it was a Bell mono tube) amp that I was using at the time. Somewhere I had a turntable. It was not until a few years later that I could afford a "stereo" system.
So - what was your first audio gear? if you can remember that far back? - lol
