It’s a photo of my father’s audio system from the ’70s, when I was a kid.
I’m trying to sort out the complete gear list, but you’ll notice some McIntosh and Sony pieces in there.
Yes, those are mirrors on the underside of the lid. And yes, the VU meters are indeed built into the front of the custom cabinet.
Update: Here’s a partial gear list:
- Sony tuner
- McIntosh preamp
- Sony amp
- 2 x Tandberg reel-to-reel units
- Kenwood oscilloscope
- Modified Rabco linear tracking tonearm
