Well, picked this one up for just a couple bucks yesterday at Goodwill. It looks brand new. Plugged it in after a quick inspection, the FM meters light up but not the tuner section, so I'll have to fix that. Plugged some cheapo speakers in, plugged the iphone into the back, cranked up Morning Dew and it plays like a charm, sounds great (for cheapo speakers and an iphone). It looks like a granny-radio, but I think it's absolutely gorgeous and so evocative of a time gone by. Oh and it weighs about 50lbs, and puts out about 60 watts per channel maybe? it can function as a preamp or power amp. Reading reviews it seems to be very highly regarded. Kit went for about $300, and fully assembled it was $650. 1972 dollars, that would be around $4,000 today. Yikes!!! The wood case, which mine did not have, was originally an extra $35. I have no idea how to tell whether this one was bought as a kit or fully assembled. My plan is to take it to a local tech who works on vintage audio, have him check (replace?) the capacitors and anything that looks off internally (oh, the FM doesn't work, but i don't listen to FM, I'll probably have him fix it as well anyway). I'm also mulling over the idea of having my woodworker neighbor build a case out of some flamed mahogany i've had sitting in the garage for a few years - I think it would look nice in a wood case. Here are some pics for you.
