P1000844

I picked this up yesterday at the thrift for $10 including the speakers......

After a bit of a clean it looked fantastic, it just caught my eye in the shop as a bit of quality kit......and i was right it sounds fantastic, these things were not cheap when they were new, from what i can find out they retailed at someting like $400 back in the day......and you can tell......

The speakers are quite good quality, not the usual lightweight masonite cases with one crappy speaker in them, these are 2 way with a bass port (the grille is none removable tho....shame) and they sound very nice indeed....

The BSR (made in England) record deck is 99% seized up, and i am trying to get the platter off to oil it all.......but no luck with that yet...

The cassette deck runs 95% perfectly, and its stereo recordings are amazingly good !!!

Oh and its got an 8 track player/recorder as well......but i dont have any 8 track carts.......yet, i think i know a local thrift with some in.......it they havent trashed them !!!!!

Turntable update.........

I noticed a couple of parts missing from the turntable......one of the hinges and one of the clear plastic centering guides......

So.....back i went into the trash in the general area where the turntable had been dumped....and yes i found the bits......

P1000460

So now the dustcover works........and where there was a hole there is now a plastic thingy.....its 99% complete.....the 45 center adaptor is missing.......

Oh and i bought the massive box of records that seemed to have come in with the hifi seperates when they were donated to the shop..........so i have an instant classical collection......

Pics of records later.........
