Tintin, was it you who had the busted 207? Did you fix it?
Last weekend I was walking past a local junk shop, and did a double take at an old glass Technics rack outside. It contained Arcam Alpha CD, Amp and Tuner, and a Marantz SD52 Cassette Deck. A pair of Wharfedale Laser 80's sat atop said rack. The price? £30!
So far I've cleaned up the CD player and the amp, both work fine - though the CD player is no match for my heavily modded Marantz - as I'd hope!!
The tuner has a couple of station marker stickers on it so I'll need to get the residue remover on it, and the cassette deck, like the rest of the kit, looks pretty much pristine.
Best part is in the bottom of the rack were two unopened packs of 10 late 70's vintage TDK D-C90s! As I don't use cassettes, I stuck them on evilbay and got £90 for them! Therefore the kit owes me nothing
To top things off, I just won a newly listed (and local) pair of Celestion 44's for £50 buy it now. My mates dad had a pair BITD and I remember them sounding stunning.
Got my new listening room now too - moved house two weeks ago
