This MC240 was a labor of love, that I totally rebuilt, and should have never sold. Especially when I sold it for a nice price to its "forever" home. I later learned they turned around and sold it for a hefty profit.
Not vintage but I miss trading in my Duson amp, pre and cd player (Phillips Transport) back in the early 90's. 50 W Class A, imported from the Netherlands. Smooth sound. Should have hooked up a turntable with it. I'm sure it would even sounded better.
I miss my old Nakamichi 700ZXE . It was my Dad’s gift to me when I graduated from my Pre Med course . I sold it because back in the mid 90’s the cassette was passé and the tech who was fixing it cannot fix the auto azimuth for recording purposes. I was thinking if I buy one now I won’t be using it and it will be just an expensive ornament of days gone by .
