HOME OF VINTAGE HIFI FREE

ABOUT

   Welcome to my website! Audio Nostalgia was developed as a result of a lifetime passion for HiFi, DIY and vintage items. I always felt that there is something magical about the classic HiFi. Nonetheless, I believe that if vintage equipment is to be used to for playing music (not for decorative purposes only), it often requires some work beforehand.
   I am also a big fan of doing things myself. Not because it is cheaper, and not because I think I can do them better than professionals - far from that!. Simply because I take great pleasure in learning new things, and because using items that I have built gives me great satisfaction.

   On Audio Nostalgia you will find descriptions, specifications and my subjective opinions on many classic speaker constructions. My aim is to experience & explore, and share my HiFi adventures with other enthusiasts around the globe. Since I live in a relatively small house, I cannot keep all of the speakers that I buy. Hence, every so often, you can find some of my vintage speakers on eBay.

   In the DIY section you will find detailed descriptions and photos from various projects, including upgrading crossovers as well as refurbishing and building new enclosures.

   I currently live in West Yorkshire (UK), hence, majority of the speakers on this website are British. Apologies for any spelling mistakes - English is not my first language. This is also a reason why I use my nickname instead of my, rather hard to pronounce, Polish name ;). Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or feedback.

Enjoy!
Brast
