Vintage Crown equipment in the house

Just picked these up today the round 2.5 hr trip was a piece of cake. Threw in some rca adapters for my other 300A and the hand made stand for going mono block. Need to get some banana plugs then I will be off to the races.

I always liked Crown's choice of walnut cabinetry. IIRC, they made a stacked-rack format for the IC-150/DC-150 series. Never saw one for the DC300. At one time, I had a roll-around cabinet from Crown that supported their tape decks and had room for a preamp at the bottom. The whole rack frame pivoted for production work.

At purchase time, you had to put down a $500 deposit for the thing to be shipped in a huge crate that had to be returned. It all came by truck and I remember being totally incapable of getting this huge crate into the house the day the trucker showed up at my door. He refused to help and I ended up 'buying' a bunch of strong arms with beer just to man-handle the thing into the house.

Cheers,

David

yes the cabs are great although they make it hard for placement ( really big) Won't fit into any of my racks they are 21 inches across. They stack on top of each other and look great. Funny when you look in the back almost half of the cabs are empty.

That's a great looking setup Axcel. If they sound as good as they look you're in for a great summer of music!

That's some of the nicest looking vintage equipment I've seen in a while, Axcel! Impressive looking, to say the least!

I'd not hesitate a second if I saw that gear up for sale, and I really don't buy anything I don't particularly need.

Enjoy!

John

Not sure if you've seen this brochure, but wanted to share (Didn't scan the back page with the D-150 and D-60 amps). Nice gear!
