30. JBL 4311 WX-A Control Monitor Speakers From 1974

Back in the mid to late 1970's these were extremely popular in recording studios.
Rockers would listen to the playback on these. Wonderful speakers for listening close up or as they say "near field". I have them on my computer desk with a nice Marantz 2235B receiver. The turntable that I'm using in this set up is my Pioneer PL-71 with an Empire 2000 E/III cartridge and original stylus. I am really liking this set up!

29. Marantz 2235B Receiver From 1977

This is a sweet little receiver! Made in 1977, it puts out 35 watts per channel.
Total harmonic distortion is at .25%. It weighs about 26 pounds. There is an optional wood case for it that I wish I had! It is my current desktop receiver. I am using a pair of JBL 4311 studio monitors with it right now. I am enjoying this set up!
