Re: RECEIVER BIC LUX Model;71/2R

I just came into possession of one of these receivers (sold outside of the US, I am told, as the Luxman FQ-900). It had sat in an enclosed (dust-free) cabinet at my late father-in-law's house for years. I also have the pair of Rectilinear III LowBoy speakers he had connected to them. The receiver probably hadn't been fired up in 30-40 years—they had no more than a dozen records, mostly opera—but on a quick test, everything seems to be working. I'll open it up, take a look, do some further tests, and decide what to do with this monster. (Spec sheet says that the weight is 17 kg (nearly 35 pounds)—yikes! It will be interesting to do a comparison against the low-end, recent-vintage Yamaha receiver that I currently have, along with a pair of NHT SuperOnes.

I also now have his pair of Infinity 5000 speakers. Woofers need to be re-foamed (no surprise there), but otherwise they seem OK. Seeing them brings me back to my college days!

I bought one of these new back in the day. Very nice, good looking for that period. Sounded wonderful. Made my Altec Lansing Capistrano's sing. Wish I had kept it.
