    certainly dont make them how they used to

    There were some fab looking music centres around when I was young back in the 70's. My cousin had a great Sharp piece that sounded lovely to my ears

    We need more pics on the forum of music centres from the era

    Here's the one my cousin had https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-S...AAAOSwW8FbDvGp


    He also added some Wharfedales, Lintons I think it was and ran them additionally with the originals.

    As I say, certainly sounded musical as heck to my ears - loved it ! and brings back good memories

    No laughter from me - some of those old music centres were surprisingly good and that looks like a fine beast!

    How does it sound?
