I told the story of getting it a couple years ago. I bought it from a local fix-it shop where the owner seems to get the occasional great find. This is as new as something now 50 years old can be. He got it from the estate of the original owner and I recall paying $125 for it. It's amazing how well it still works and while I play records, I also stream appropriate Pandora or Spotify recordings as well. At some point, I'll probably have to butcher it a little and replace the RCA ins as the original plugs are mounted on a metal plate and are too close together for modern RCA plugs. Additionally, they are made with a ceramic insert and they are degrading. I had to open it up and swap the leads for the outs to the ins as one plug broke. These were supplied for the optional tape deck which mine does not have. Still, for now, the remaining two plugs are holding up to the modern sized RCA cable.
