Hi-Fi systems in those days had a lot better sound than modern systems for me, at least for your regularl/budget, high-street ranges. I still use my 30 year old speakers even though the Hi-Fi system it came with is long gone. They weren't even anything special in their day, but they produce a sound richer that anything else I've found (without spending a small fortune).

Stealing this from the car guys, but it applies to speakers too.

There is no replacement for displacement.

PolarBlues PolarBlues A lot more depth, richness and less tiny hollow, artificial sounding those older systems. Totally agree.

It is somewhat reassuring that it's not just me who thinks this.

Also, going back to that Hi-Fi photo, it's clearly a fakes. All the components are Sony when clearly any self-respecting Hi-Fi system featured a mixture of Technics, Pinoeer, Sony and other assorted brands.

I was mostly a Kenwood and Pioneer guy. My current shop stereo is a Yamaha receiver with Pioneer speakers and a Klipsch sub woofer. Hey I need good tunes when I'm cutting metal and wood.

A TV the size of a microwave built into a wooden cabinet the size of a refrigerator.

And a phone on that endtable next to the chair (or the table behind it the lamp is on). Either a slimline or a typical big base one (dunno what that type is called). Rotary or pushbutton would both be appropriate.

Also a total lack of TV guides or even a newspaper for TV listings.

This was my electronic dopamine generator. The mighty Acorn Electron. (Not the one in the picture).
Many hours were spent wandering around the Palace of Magic, playing Spellbinder, Elite and Exile.
It's somewhere at my parents, gathering dust now. Sad times.
