Vintage electronics are hard to come by these days. Most of the electronics that are built in today's world are simply junk items that come out of China. It is hard to come by a well built model. Many of the models that were built decades ago were made in Japan, where quality was shown.
There are many different kinds of vintage electronics including; receivers, amplifiers, cassette players and recorders, CD players, speakers and even equalizers. Many of the systems now a days are all in one systems, which are cheaply made. Systems that you can build yourself with speaker wire, cables, receivers and speakers are great electronics that are definitely worth keeping.
Some people keep the electronics as vintage collectables that sit on their shelves as antiques that are never used. Others decide to make some use out of the old electronics and play back their old 45 records or favorite cassette tapes from when they were a kid. Whichever you choose to do, it is important to take good care of those electronics. It is obvious that they just aren't built with the same quality as they used to be. Some audiophiles enjoy rebuilding old electronics. They take pride in cleaning off the dust and replacing parts that need to be fixed. The quality of the sound when it is played back is indescribable and cause listeners to stand there in awe.
I love Vintage Electronics! Specifically I like to collect vintage keyboards. There are many incredible keyboards available. Companies have been developing new features for electric keyboards and organs since their invention. With the exponential growth in our knowledge of technology, keyboards are only becoming more and more diverse.
The story of electric keyboards start with electronic organs. All because of physicist's developments in understanding sound waves, electronic music, music synthesized by electricity and not produced by natural acoustics, has been made possible. Electric organs were marketed to allow small churches to have an organist accompany services without the funds or space required for a full sized acoustic wind organ.
From this development eventually came synthesizers. Unlike electric organs with their factory preset tones, synthesizers put the structuring of the sound wave into the hands of the musician. They allowed for people to start with the simple pure tone of the sin wave and sculpt it to create sounds the like of which had never been heard. This is why some of these Vintage Electronics keyboards are so interesting and valuable to musicians of the modern generation which has shifted back toward having a list of factory presets to choose from.
