Show me some.
not really Soviet but Soviet state my Intervox Mark 10 Model BHP 1062 made in Hungary
Melodya records can be pretty good.
Russia (and China) pretty much dominate the new tube market now.
I've run across a couple of LPs produced in the old Soviet Bloc that sound very nice indeed.
Music Hall turntable are manufactured in the Czech Republic
Some stuff here.
Are you interested in gear from the Soviet Union or the eastern bloc in general?
EB is cool.
The Eastern Block would be the Soviet Union, without it you just have Russia.
This has been knowledge you will never need with you host Vintage Hi-F!
Soviet Hi-Fi equipment, Strong like Tractor, Sounds like Bull...I have a Diora "Calypso" radio made in Poland, it is a knock-off of the German wooden table-model sets of the 1950s-'60s...Surprisingly, it even has the 88-108 MC FM band...Not a very good performer, & the finish is pretty laughable compared to the Grundigs, Emuds, SABAS, etc it was supposed to compete with. I got it mainly because I didn't have a Combloc radio of any kind, I never saw one like it before or since.
There were EB states that weren't part of the Soviet Union - Poland, Yugoslavia, etc.
Cool question; never really thought about it. I'm interested to see what comes up.
As one who has a very under used Master's Degree in History, Poland and the other countries of the old Warsaw Pact (i.e. Eastern Bloc) were never members of the Soviet Union but rather under the economic and political dominance of the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics from about 1945-1990. By such logic Eastern Germany would have been considered a part of the Soviet Union. Under its influence and perhaps a client of the USSR yes but never officially a Soviet Republic by a long shot. The USSR consisted of various "Soviet Republics " within certain geographic areas of the Russian part of the European Continent and Asia (all of the Islamic republics such as Tashkent, the various "Stans", and other Slavic European regions like Ukraine and Georgia, etc.). Do not confuse that entity with the Warsaw Pact.
If you search for "Soviet Union" on Wikipedia, you get the USSR page - which lists these countries as the constituent parts:
Wikipedia also has this to say about Poland's government in the Soviet era: "...emerging several years later as the socialist People's Republic of Poland within the Eastern Bloc, under strong Soviet influence"
Back to the discussion of Soviet Hi-Fi gear...
One last aside: icenine, I love the Mr. Mind avatar. :thmbsp:

Yeah, I was thinking Soviet Block rather than Soviet Union.
