Welcome to the forum:bounce17...sorry to hear that it was a problem with the registration process...I'm glad you kept tryingHi there!
This is a great site and a great source of info for good music! Been checking out for well over a year... And finally managed to register.
Just a heads up - it took a couple of times to register. The email activation link does't always come through and in that case there is no way to contact using that log in... You're sort of stuck in a 'no permission' purgatory unable to view polls or try and get a new activation email sent out. But after getting another email set up I'm finally in!
I got into surround music visiting the states and I bought a Rolling Stones magazine that had a SACD sampler with it. This site has enabled me to find out many new albums that I was unaware of so thanks for the reviews!
I shall do the same with my limited collection.
Wooooooooooooooohooooo John Joined - Snood no know who you are but Awesome you are here - hopefully get to know ya on the forums :banana::banana::banana:Just joined. Thrilled to be a part of it. Have a Akai reel to reel quad I just picked up. looking for vintage tapes. Proving to be quite a chore as I’m sure everyone is aware.
Hiya Manimarco - Aweeeeeeeeeeeesome Pics and welcome to the wonderful world of Surrrrrrround SOund - you are gonna loooooooooove it. Make sure you ask any and all questions ya have because there are going to be a few and there are quite a few people here ready to help ya out.I just joined, Thanks. I have a Technics SA 8000x I just bought. I really like the 70's stuff but this is my first quad and so far I really like it. I hooked it up to my 15" Lafayette Goodmans and it sounds great! But needs the pots cleaned. View attachment 32038View attachment 32037
they certainly made nice looking equipment in the 70s!I just joined, Thanks. I have a Technics SA 8000x I just bought.

based on my experience you will not be disappointed with the Surround Master.Hi Folks,
I usually hang out on audiokarma but this forum keeps coming up more and more in my google searches, so here I am after lurking for a couple of months. I'm really into restoring vintage amplifiers, mostly Sansui from 60s and 70, but also other brands. I'm also into restoring reel-to-reel machines and archiving prerecorded tapes into digital format. I dabled with 5.1 when it first came out and then went back to 2-channel ever since. Well, I've had this growing bug to try one of the sansui quad offerings. A long time ago I bought a Sansui QS-1 (which I know has limited capability) but I need to repair it and haven't got it going yet. Lately I got more and more curious about the QRX9001 and an interesting amp to restore... lots of things for me to fix up inside . I almost grabbed a QSD-2, which I understand has a similar setup to the X001 circuits. Well I just bought the 3-band QSD-1 instead..... and well, that's that.... I'm hooked. What is mind blowing is how well sounds get steered around when I watch regular 2channel movies and tv shows. I can hear I need to align the QSD-1 (left is a bit lower than right), so I will do that shortly and toy with the debated bleed resistors which I can see at the inputs and outputs of the QSD-1. I'm a bit fan of getting rid of electrolytic caps in signal path so that is on the cards too. I have some experience with characterizing transistors and circuits, and will also toy with lowering the noise floor of the QSD-1, which is acceptable but audible.
Additionally, I'm very excited about the Involve Surround Master (and yes, I've read the various threads...); I'm getting one of those as soon as they come out with the new case (which the chaps over at Involve told me is 3 months (which they said means 6 months)).
Cheers from San Francisco
