The Mechanic-What was the stereo setup?
« on: 30 Jan 2011, 05:54 am »
Just got home from 'The Mechanic' a remake of the old Charles Bronson movie.
The main guy has a great stereo system, what looks like a Pro-Ject turntable,
a red cartridge, and a Jolida integrated amp.  I'll leave it to you Eagle eyes to tell
me the tt model, cartridge and amp.
It was good to see him clean the record and cue the vinyl.  :thumb:

I saw the preamp was a McIntosh C22 reissue, turntable was Pro-ject and the cart was Ortofon Red

I watched The Mechanic yesterday along with True Grit, excellent action flick,,, my kinda movie. I'm a huge Jason Statham fan and pretty much enjoy every movie of his. Nice tube system but I wish there would have been a better shot of the speakers, there was barely a glance of 1 floorstander.
 
Maybe these types of action flicks aren't for the critical viewer, tons of action with a fair amount of T&A and no Oscar nominations but it rocked my world for an hour and a half. 4 out of 5 stars.  8)
 
Bring on Cowboys and Aliens, Thor, and The Green Lantern.  :guns:
 
Cheers,

They look like Triangle speakers to me.

Looks like a Pro-ject RPM 9.x with a Rega arm.

Thanks guys! What model Jolida was it?  It looks like it has 4 power tubes.
The red Ortofon looks good against that milky white acrylic platter.

Based on the shape of the tubes, it looks like a 302.

If the speakers are supposed to be current production, they aren't Triangles: Look at the way the light falls across the inside of the right speaker. There is some sort of facet, like the corner is cut in.

I don't think they are the Pinnacles linked to: There's no base/plinth on the speakers getting torched.

I don't know the model #, but 2 of my buddies have that amp. Looks better without the transformer cover.

I agree with you, Planet10, I couldn't find a photo of the older model without its covers,  but here is its sister, the 302a
