I found an A-19 (not an A9.. couldn't figure out how to edit the title) for sale. It brings back memories of the portable that was my first stereo. Can anyone comment on the sound of the subject device as far as bass and treble? I know portable speakers are never going to be as good as my AR-2Ax's, but are they reasonable? (I know...subjective). I welcome any comments at all. Seller is asking $1,000 which is a bit rich for my blood. Comments? For me, it would be fun to have the ease of opening it up and playing my 1500 records. Right now it's a bit of a hassle with all my rack mount stuff, turntable and wires to my 500-C. Thorne PS - Anyone know what speaker components are in each detachable speaker? Found out: 8" woofer and 4" tweeter. Maybe some good replacement speakers to improve the sound? . .
