1960- a Thorens TD-124 turntable, a Kenwood tube receiver, and a pair of AKG headphones- all acquired used in a trade at the age of 16. This changed my life forever, creating a lasting love of music and ever finer gear.

1979 - Yamaha receiver, cassette deck, speakers and B&O turntable. 2 years later traded everything except the turntable, Yamaha separates, Nak tape deck, ADS speakers and the cycle just keeps going and going and going.

Dude!! Nice thread resurrection. I bought my first 'high end' in 75 and it included a Marantz receiver too -- pretty sure same model, having googled it for pictures. Dual turntable, Dokodor cassette player and Marantz speakers rounded out the system. Got me through last couple years of high school and college before replacing with Yamaha/Nakamichi/Denon/ADS system (three systems ago).

Infinity RS4 speakers, late '83. Their last role was as bedroom system speakers until about two years ago.
