‘Stones rescued from the bin! Anyone else saved valuables from early retirement?

Now that is lovely. I love the way the frequency dial has Droitwich, Moscow and Tashkent on it. That’s a geographical Venn diagram with a very small intersection!

Apart from The Repair Shop, where would you take something this old for a service? Presumably it’s got valves in it.

I love it. Inside the rear cover is the circuit diagram.

No Martinzero, that’s bang on topic.

Lovely piece of kit, I’m hitting mid forties and I seem to be developing a retro streak = there’s a focus on quality that’s built to last, unlike much of today’s kit which is designed to be obsolete one day after the warranty expires.

Do you listen to it?

Only when people say wow, what’s that and does it work? Then I switch it on, takes about 15 minutes to work though, maybe the old valves?

Errr, I intercept old clothes to use as rags…

Does it do muffins?

I get that you don’t like them musically. Saying they are no good is a sweeping statement which may be your opinion but one which many would disagree with.

Naturally, companies were helpful and less secretive then, plus they knew it would go wrong!
Nice find.

I certainly don’t think of myself as old, the Stones first album was released over a decade before I was born.

If the records are not in good condition you can buy a cheap ion turntable at HMV for about
£50. It is not worth buying an expensive turntable For a few records.
