Identify the Components Game

The Rega could be an Apollo as others have said, but it could also just as easily be a Jupiter or Planet. I had a Planet 2000 that looked just like that except it was silver. It recently took up residence at my sister-in-law’s house.

That’s got to be the ultimate in a high-mass isolation rack. :wink:

+1 for a Rega (Planet) and the Sony seems to be TA-E 1000 ESD Digital Preamp. The Amp is quite challenging. Got no clue…

Looks like a Magnum Dynalab FT 11 FM tuner sitting on the left speaker…

The capture below is from the 1997 movie “Absolute Power” directed by Clint Eastwood. The stereo is in the apartment of the Secret Service agent played by Scott Glenn. I realize it’s SAE but does anyone know if this was a well known high end brand, mid-fi? Any ideas what happened to the company?

From what I remember, circa mid-70’s SAE was High End for a time, especially the amplifier designs of James Bongiorno. James also designed the GAS series of amplifier, of which I owned the Son of Ampzilla. SAE equipment tended to have a busy look to my eye. SAE was known for their power amplifiers, parametric equalizers, and record de-clicker. The Stereophile write up summarizes the company below:

American Psycho, Harmon Kardon electrics and Kef speakers playing Hip to be Square.

Agree. Seems like a lot going on in terms of controls.

Next one is likely easy but here goes from “Love Lotion No. 9” (1992)

Identify the components!


Can´t believe that this is some 30 years ago…
From left to right, Krell Amp KSA-250 (or 150), Krell Phono/Preamp KBL/KPA, then an early Oracle Delphi, maybe Mk I or II, and the Digital Combo MD-1 and SBP.

From the hit series BOSCH…

This one will be easy.

From the 2011 movie “Limitless” starring Bradley Cooper.
