In truth, both have a lot of appeal. The system was purchased by the seller’s mother-in-law back in 1961 and has been ‘safely stored’ and ‘unused’ for many years. It still works, but according to the seller, perhaps needs some attention to double check everything within, safety etc.
As for condition, there is a mark on the top of the player, but overall seem to be good for the age. See all the images to get a proper idea. Of course, you get all that lovely paperwork too, which only adds to the history. Really love the ‘high fidelity sound for space conscious moderns’ ad!
If you fancy it, the ‘Buy It Now’ price is £400, but you can make a cheaper offer.
