The purpose of vintagehifi.org is to educate audio enthusiasts and future generations about high fidelity music, vinyl records, and analog audio systems with components “Made in the USA”, from the very beginning to the Golden Age of vacuum tube audio (1950’s to 1960’s) and finally solid state transistor designs (1970’s), thereby promoting its preservation, operation, restoration, and history. Our goals:
1) To focus solely on High Fidelity.
2) To recruit additional volunteers, including the "younger" generation with the same passion for analog & vacuum tube audio. The vinyl surge is going on now!
3) To promote vintage hi-fi history our NEW Library_101 CDROM.
4) To educate everything analog -- tape &vinyl record care; tube testing, speaker / amplifier repair & restoration, plus more.
Our location (485 New Park Avenue, West Hartford, CT) has 2-large areas to take on donation inventory, display vintage audio, host a gift shop / stereo equipment plus vinyl records, host a Hi-Fi clinic for restoration (including vacuum tube amplifiers, phono cartridge analysis, output power & distortion testing), and house a "listening lounge" to enjoy quality audio and "for the love of music". The repair depot is here, too!
