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 be an extension of the radio museum, here in Windsor, thus broadening the reach to the public.
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) Request your vintage hi-fi price history database going back 15-years (with a $5 donation, please!) or our NEW Library_101 CDROM.
4) Create seminars for analog tape & 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, sell within a gift shop / stereo store 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". You can even try before you buy! Hours:
Wednesday 11 - 2pm, Saturday 9pm - 3pm (other times by appointment).
CLOSED (attending events to promote the museum effort): September 14 - 17, 2016 (Kutztown PA, vintage electronics show)
