I’ve found via Renzgi at Stereo2go forums that the famous very first version of the SONY TPS-L2 ‘guys & dolls’ is shown at Pawn Stars TV show.

Gosh! 1200$ is a lot of money for […]

I’m preparing a thorough, in-depth article about it where I’ll explain all details about that. But, in the meantime I just found this nice explanation of Dolby system and I think it’s worth to watch […]

I must confess reading this article made me think I must be an important person… or at least I have a somewhat relevant website. None of them are true, but I bet the latter is closer.
