    That's a lovely thing, Andrew, and would have been pretty expensive in its day. I'd imagine it will sound decent, the T/T in particular, if the cartridge isn't shagged, although the weak points in these things were notoriously the amplification and speakers.

    Good fun, though!

    So what's with buying all this quality vintage gear - are you setting up as a dealer?

    You enjoy yourself. I just wondered what your plan was to do with it all?

    Restoring these bits gives me great pleasure Marco , if and when I do sell the items itís usually at cost unless I have bought something for next to nothing and it has a high value but most of the time I fuck up ( the jblís for example)
    Iíd love to be in a position to make a living from a hobby but as we talk I canít get to the back of my garage.

    Nice one, Andrew. Carry on, mate. It's of no interest to me what you sell your refurbished stuff for, even if it was to members for a small profit, as I'd simply see it as providing a valuable service to the AoS community

    I think what you're doing is great, as I'm all for restoring vintage equipment and giving it to a good home, or simply doing it as a hobby. It's also something that's of great interest to our members, so keep it up!

    Naughty step? I'd be worried you'd enjoy the spanking...

    I had something very similar to that way back in the 70's. I had a paper round and worked on a farm at weekends and with Christmas and birthday money I bought a National Panasonic music centre. To me it was the best thing I'd ever heard, I was like a dog with two dicks in a street full of lamp posts. I don't remember the model number but it was very much like this one. Happy days.

    Hi Ian , i remember seeing National Panasonic ones , very nice .
    I’m looking forward to hearing this one tomorrow though I doubt the Wharfedale Linton xp3’s ( they came with it ) will do it justice so I’ll hook up my radfords to it.
