BudgetAudio is not just about dumpster diving or thrift store finds. Like 70sAudioMindset, the range of acceptable topics cover the entire range of audio topics, but it's focus is oriented toward great Bang-For-The-Buck audio gear. Almost everyone gets a thrill from finding great gear at bargain prices. You will find like-minded folks here. Visit the home page (link on the left) or join immediately by clicking this button.

MarantzTalk MarantzTalk is a good place to go for information about your vintage Marantz gear.
Phoenix Audio One of my very good friends, Lee Laatsch runs this relatively small audio discussion forum. If you like a cozy place with a few good bud's, this may be the place for you. You can find extensive help with Phase Linear rebuilds and many other topics here. Lee is the man who did a total restoration on Rick's (stereomanuals site owner) Pioneer SPEC-4 in 2013 for FREE because he felt that is something the Lord wanted him to do. How about that? He even had his hottie wife polish out the meter glass (sorry Lee, couldn't resist).
RealisticAudio Ed Hanlon's Yahoo discussion group for fans of Radio Shack's Realistic brand.
SAE-Talk Open discussion on audio equipment in general but primarily focused on equipment mfg by SAE (Scientific Audio Electronics) THE premier site to talk and learn about all things tape... Reel to Reel, Cassette, etc. They also cover all aspects of audio, including vinyl and turntables, speakers, amplifiers and receivers along with everything else that helps to make for a complete sound system. This is a well-run forum with a friendly atmosphere and mimimal rules to worry about breaking. Recommended.
