As always, I was skimming over Craigslist and came across this unit in Alameda, California. It had been posted for 5 days, and I figured it must have sold already. I decided to send an email anyway in hopes it was still available.
According to the research the guy did that I bought this from, he said this was produced in the 1970’s and they only manufactured 50 of these units. This makes you wonder how many are left.
This unit has a record player, radio and cassette. All three work, but the record player needs a new cartridge.
This unit even has its original microphone and stand to record.
I am a child of the 80’s, so I actually have a huge collection of cassettes.
I think it is really sleek how the record player is hidden away.
This unit produces some great sound!
The speakers are huge and sound great. I need to redo the fabric on them because the previous owner had a cat.
I plan to keep this until I fall out of love with it, which might take a while. I plan to see if my good buddy Justin from Stellar Electronics can add a jack so my iPhone can play through the unit.
Here are some other cool Panton Era units…
