It looks good and according to the seller, this vintage Deccasound Compact 3 audio system works just fine too.

Presumably dating from the late '60s or early 1970s, it is built around chrome legs and a teak wood and brushed aluminium frame, packing a BSR C141 autochange deck and a radio with medium long and shortwave bands. It's also stereo, with speakers included, as well as a tape input and output and the original instruction booklet.

It has also been serviced by a professional vintage audio restorer and has a new stereo cartridge. Condition is described as 'superb', with some marks on the smoked perspex lid, but these 'don't detract from the coolness of this great system'.

More images on the listing, with the price at £50.
