Steve Jobs stereo system 1982

    There is one picture of Steve Jobs in his house made in 1982:






    "All you needed was a cup of tea, a light, and your stereo"

    They are two electrostatic speaker left and rigth and behind him a record player (Oracle Delphi ?) and a Macintosh, Marantz or Scott receiver ?

    Can anybody identify the components ?

    You have to download the picture and try to make it bigger.

    The speakers I believe are Acoustat Model 2 or 3's and Michelle Gyrodec.

    What strikes me about this picture is that the stereo shown would probably smoke anything on display at any of the stereo shops here in Calgary today.

    The lower componant is reminiscent of Mark Levinson.

    Come on Guys !

    We have the speakers, TT and possibly Mark Levinson electronics.

    Thats got to be a tuner on top.

    Any detectives out there ? I'd love to ID all the components.

    Is the amp/etc one piece in two-tone? Is it perhaps just a receiver (ie amp + tuner)?

    The electrostats are too close to the wall.

    And those Acoustat 3s are self-powered, so all he needs to drive them is a preamp.

    Thats not a Levinson product behind him.

    Maybe something from Harmon Kardon?

    Preamp on the bottom looks like a Threshold FET2.
