Default Wheels but not Tires

There are a couple of wheels here. One adjusts the sound and the other selects the output source.

You beat me to that one Bynx!

The tuner on our tuner/amp failed, so I have a separate tuner sitting on top of it. The pair of them sits on top of the piano. One of my more arduous domestic duties, every 3 months or so, is disconnecting the leads from all the peripherals and lifting the lot off from shoulder height to the floor, to allow the piano tuner to do his best on the old wreck (the piano, not me). The turntable, in a gigantic wooden case, is elsewhere, thankfully.

Nowadays folk seem to have all these functions and a c.25Mpix camera in their tiny pocket phone.

I note, Bynx, that you & I have again acquired a couple of orphan posts in this 'challenge'.

Wow, knobs on a stereo, that must be at least a year old and totally outdated. You need to catch up to the times with the touch controls!!!!!

Cool shot and a nice Kenwood system you have there!

Gee I never thought of it being outdated. Its a sound output box. Ive never used the speakers on my television ever. This does my 5.1 surround sound and everything else. I couldnt possibly see a reason to get a new one. I will have to check out the new fangled ones to see them without knobs.

A few weeks ago I went to the shop where I bought my camera (last Dec.) to ask a question, "I have a Canon S5-IS and..." before finishing the clerk seriously says "Oh, that's an oooold camera." I laugh so as not to cry.
