Long story short... A few months ago I bought the P-300S from Hifido Junk Shop. Today I spent some time to clear it from the customs. Brought it back to my room for inspection. The condition is so bad that I misjudged from pictures.... From the pictures it may not seem bad... Lacking one knob and left panel got knocked real bad. Not caused by courier. HiFiDo packed it up real nice. The front is full of scratches dents and dirts. Upon further disassembly I found the black cover missing some stuffs as well. There's only a spring at the right. And left is empty. My instinct tells me something is missing. All the screws are messed up as well. This is one of the examples. The mounting hole does not align at the bottom of faceplate. And quite a lot of missing screws as well. Good news is that the boards seem original without any signs of repair. Something is wrong with this speaker pot. I wonder where the wire being cut goes to? Close view of right panel damage. There are much more damages. But I am limited to post 10 pictures per post. Perhaps I'll post more in the morning. The Japanese always treasure their gears but I wonder who will damage this wonderful piece so badly. The worst I have seen in so many years. I thought of giving it up. The restoration is PITA but then it seems to be a waste. Perhaps I should start with the cosmetics first?
