custom electra?
« on: April 28, 2017, 08:16:35 PM »
Hi everyone
I'm looking at a Custom Electra console, it looks like it's solid state, I'd kinda rather have a tube system, but maybe im being picky.
here's the ad

I like the size and look, I like the speaker doors to keep the cat away fromt he grills.

Thanks for any thoughts!

Definitely solid state from the late '60s.  That Dual turntable is probably worth what they're asking for the whole unit, though...

well I got it.
it needs work, of course, theres as power supply hum, the left side cuts out and the turntable needs help.
Wife was actually happy, she immediately turned to the station that play the baseball games lol
