Because of its relatively "compact" size, this model offers the greatest degree of placement flexibility in the Heritage Series line. First introduced in 1957, the Heresy, a three-way design, started out as a compact center channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn® in three-speaker stereo arrays.
In 1985, we made some changes and improvements to this model and re-released it as the Heresy II. Today, the new Heresy III has a more powerful woofer, a bi-wire network, and a titanium diaphragm tweeter with a larger magnet assembly. The midrange compression driver also features a new titanium diaphragm.
In addition to delivering smooth, dynamic and low distortion sound, the Heresy III is available in a high-quality cherry, walnut or black ash wood veneer finish. Included is a slant riser base for floor placement that can be removed for cabinet installations.

Vintage Garrard 301

The Garrard 301 Transcription Turntable was the first transcription turntable from the Garrard Engineering and Manufacturing Company that supported all extant commercial playback formats – the 33, 45 and 78 rpm records of the time. The first model was called the Garrard 301. Oil and grease bearing versions were made. Which version is sonically superior is a hotly debated point. The later 401 was nearly identical mechanically, but with a redesigned exterior, more powerful motor, slightly different eddy current braking speed control and different turntable thrust bearing. Both models were used by the BBC and in commercial radio stations, mostly in Europe; the 301 and to a lesser extent the 401 were also exported around the world. Production of the 301 started in 1953; the 301 was launched in 1954. The 401 was introduced in 1965 and produced until 1976. Long out of production, Garrard 301 and 401 model turntables today are sold on the used market for as much as ten to twenty times their original cost.

Sherwood S-5500  Tube Amplifier

This Integrated tube amp with the 4 x 7868 output pentodes rocks big time!  tested it with JBL 4335 studio monitors in a huge room, 100 square meters and 5 meters high ceilings. This combination filled easily the room with an incredible rich and precise bass fundament. The only comparable amplifier is the amp unit of the 1967 Pioneer SX-800A. A very graceful sound without any importunity. 

This 1960 or 1961 Sherwood tube stereo amp is 64 watts per channel – very powerful for a tube amp. It is detailed and spacious, whether listening to an iPod, CD or a turntable. It was designed and built in Chicago in a factory on north California Street.
