Question for the classic stereo collectors...

Postby Sparky » Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:48 pm

I have a chance to get my hands on a vintage Fleetwood console stereo and record player. I have no idea of the model or specs, but it just looks cool. Fitz my vibe for my gameroom.

Here is a pic:

So, at 100 bucks, is it worth it? Do these sound nice or like shit? Opinions?

Bien entendu, tu peut le laisser intact si le gout te le dit.

Yes, lamps.

essentially, I want something to play vinyl on with a retro look. I have an old juke but that plays only 45's. Looking for something to play some 33's.

Pour 100$ ca fait un pti jouet pas cher pour s'amuser une fds.
Sounds shit, surement, les speakers sont surement a refaire et même refait they will sound like shit.

Ampli a lampes, si tu veut l'utiliser avec d'autre speakers éventuellement ca va te prendre
de la haute efficacité dans le genre 96db 1watt@1m et + car y'a surement pas plus de 20 watts la-dedans.

Si tu veut t'amuser avec les vinyls et le vintage y'as beaucoup mieux mais ca coute aussi un peu plus cher :-)

Ah yes, the monkey operated jukebox. You put your quarter in the monkey's cup, he pulls out an album and ques up a song for you. What a piece of modern ingenuity. Way less moving parts to break. Looking at the age of it you probably just need to replace the original monkey.
Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.
