Cosmic Lab Series


Hi Everyone,
One of the nicest sounds that I remember hearing from younger days was the Cosmic Lab Series amplifier. Do they make them anymore? If they do I wouldnt mind buying one.
cheers

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

I'd love to own one too...never had one at home but I used to sit as a 10 year old kid and admire them on their full page adverts on the back cover of Elektor magazines back in the early 80s...cosmic does not exist any more.

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

My Dad had the LAB3000 & cosmic speakers combo, they gave me my entry into the world of music, really miss them! They were given away by my dad many years ago Wish I could just listen to the amp & speakers combo just once again - so many memories attached to them.

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

used to listen to a similar set up too while growing up. cosmic lab amp with arphi speakers. the speakers were huge and at that time i thought that it was one of the best set ups ever. i think thats when my craving for a stereo set up with separate amp, floorstanding speakers etc started. i doubt they'll live up to the current day products though

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

I actually still have a pair of Cosmic speakers and a working LAB 3000 series amp, though I haven't used either in years. I've changed the tweeters over time to much smaller 2 inchers. But I can say the sound pales in comparison to what I have today. That's probably because the caps in the amp and speakers have dried out. It's been too expensive to have them replaced at todays prices. Guess time takes its toll on everything.

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

Cosmic You have really freshened up beautiful memories budy. I remember Cosmic Lab 3000 was my first HiFi Purchase along with the covox 100 speakers in my college days
I wish i could have retained Lab 3000 at least.

Re: Cosmic Lab Series

Bobby, assume you were on a princely allowance during your college days....the cosmic labs used to cost quite a lot by the standards of those times
