Today I'll show my Bang & Olufsen Beomaster 2400.
This beast of a stereo I picked up at a thrift store many years ago. If you remember I also highlighted it's awesome record player last year.

This super heavy chuck of brushed stainless and rose wood is a marvel of Danish electronics.
It only plays FM but can hook up tape, phono and aux. Five preset channels, plus many other features to address the sounds as you like.

The top opens up to hide all the features then as you tilt it down it slowly closes on it own. It's very cool. Plus, the buttons are all touch control on the front. Just put your finger over it and it adjusts for you...

This is the classic stereo that a football always hits in coming of age movies in the 80's and the kids have to get the money to replace it...

If you never heard of Bang and Olufsen you should have. They're about the top or were the top in stereos in their day. This one probably cost four figures when it was new.

Having good sound is vital to a Vintage gear guy. Of course if you have an old needle phonograph with the horn, then I'd prefer to have bad sound, but for a daily stereo, this 80's workhorse is about the best you can do... It's vintage gear for guys.
