the site design is to be like a friend sharing with a friend. It
is NOT setup to be a cold, impersonal "strictly business" place
to buy something.
We hope a good number of you will enjoy
the decidedly different "flavor" of our site when you stop by. And
for those who don't... well, we hope you will overlook our not meeting
your expectations cause all we know how to do is be who we are.
It was our intent and remains our desire to build this site
into a very large and valuable resource for fans of classic audio
gear. We haven't been around long enough to make all of our plans
a reality "yet"... but it will happen. It is a huge undertaking
but we trust that "If you build it, they will come".
amount of work involved has been much greater than we anticipated
or were prepared for... plus, we have experienced many setbacks
and major delays that were completely unexpected and out of our
control. Why is it that life sometimes just does not cooperate
with our plans? See

|We began selling
a few manuals on eBay 2001 and had good success through 2002 with
a growing selection. In 2003 we acquired 3 tons of original manuals

We stopped selling on eBay and began trying to catalog/describe/price
them and get that information on our site. Elderly parent problems
(the worst kind) and other situations hindered progress through
2006. To add to the load... we also acquired an additional 50,000
+/- items during that time.
Time was "finally" being available
in early 2007 to begin getting our "real lists" of manuals on site
and make other changes. We made numerous site navigation changes
and began posting updated manuals catalogs for various companies.
Just after getting a good start, elderly parent problems arose again.
That and other unexpected family projects stopped the project once
again and consumed our entire summer. Most of that has subsided
for now and we are back at it. Much more of the site has been totally
We have printed manuals for around 125,000+/-
models and PDF manuals for around a quarter million models. Additionally, we have an
