Even though I frequented every high end HiFi store every other week to see what was new and spent more on stereo than was reasonable, I never got to see or hear the Bozak. It must have been a guaranteed lease buster.
Phil, We sold the JBL Paragon pictured in the 70s when I was with Pacific Stereo (when it was Colombia Broadcast). Most fun job I ever had. HiFi was at its peak before video and we were located in the most affluent part of Dallas at the time. We just helped people in mass get great systems from the best products available. Those bubbles, while generally short lived, are the best of times. Btw, even though it was not my kind of sound there was a JBL 4311 large bookshelf studio monitor that was incredibly live and dynamic. People who own them do not give them up and only rebuild them. All cast frames. 12 inch sub with a massive coil. Every aspect of construction was the best. Do a search.
Kaneboats, you are describing a clinical condition created from years of marriage where you have selective hearing losses coincidentally at the exact frequency range of the female voice. This is well documented. I've also adapted over the years to have lost sensitivity in the vocal bandwidth of small children, especially now that my own are raised.

some of my fondest memories of growing up with the old man have to do with the dedicated hi-fi room, well really the formal living room, but all we ever used it for was listening to vinyl. it was in the mid 70's and you are correct, before video was big.
he had a sofa table in the corner with a technics 35wpc stereo receiver(analog), a b.i.c. turntable with shure cartrige and a pioneer cassette player(ct-920, was a grand and no autoreverse) all playing through a set of polk audio monitor 10b's. I remember sitting on the couch listening to classical music as a youngster. sounded clean and lifelike..
all this equipment but the turntable are still in the old man's basement. hoping to get my hands on it all someday. he still uses the turntable from time to time, but has replaced most of the gear as, yup, the wife wants a/v sound
any ideas how tough it is anymore to find a 5.1 receiver that has a phono input..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

Unfortuneately divorce has become too common in our society. Proof of this is a popular gift item this Christmas called the 'Divorced Barbie'. She comes fully accessorized including half of Ken's stuff.
