    So I found an ad on CL and I caught it about 5 hours after it was posted. Well apparently I was the one the guy responded back to and he said that I can come pick it up today. It's a console some speakers, so I'm hoping that I can roll the dice and get something cool! Fingers crossed and pics to come if it all works out

    Here are some pics!

    Lol if only that console was that big. Hah


    The lid on the Barzilay was gouged a few times . It was my fault as a strap was jostled loose so it kills me. Not sure if I can save the lid easy but want to try.

    Otherwise it was a fun trip. Guy was nice and said that he got tons of calls after me.

    Very cool. Those should clean up nicely. Too bad about the strap...

    I like me some Realistic gear.

    Nice clear pictures too.

    It can be repaired, but difficult to make the same. Interesting pattern on that lid.

    I love the EVs, but probably won't best your Cornwalls. Nice haul.

    I like the Realistic receiver, great style to it. Those EVs are mint, great haul.

    Those EV speakers alone would make my day.

    Looks like a fabulous score. I had one of those Realistic receivers. Punches above its weight. And those EV's look fantastic.

    I see a Sony tuntable on top of the Akai. Is it a PS-LX55II? It looks like mine. If so, does yours have a few dead spots (won't spin up until nudged out of them) about every 90 degrees?

    That sounds like you need to lube the bearings.
