I'll contribute the NAD 5120:

Probably will become part of a second system with my recently acquired JVC JR-S201L. Another odd looking piece of gear. :)
I've gotten around to get a picture of the JVC receiver. Here it is:

Somewhat of a beast at 19 3/4" wide x 15" deep x 6 3/4" high and close to 24 pounds. Only looked at it because of its looks but a very nice sounding receiver.


Now, a funky kind of cassette deck:

Just under 3"25 high, this is a very flat cassette deck. But only because the cassettes go in flat in a drawer. Just like in a CD player.

It's a Marantz SD 5010.

Now, I've shown you lots of old models, but I saw this one, a new startup that some of you might be interested in...Ladies and gentlemen, the world's FIRST 3-D printed turntable! :D



For all the DIY-heads out there...You assemble it yourself, too! 8)

Nothing like your collection though. :D

That 3D printed TT is interesting both from a DIY perspective anf the 3D printing perspective. I've been looking at those printers, thinking about getting one. But, although fun to show here, this seems more like a way to get into the 3D printing side of life by Lenco.

First I imagine the motor is NOT 3D printed. But, yes, I haven't yet explored the Lenco-MD site much yet. Then, Lenco is not known for its belt-driven TTs but rather for its idler driven TTs.

But I'm fascinated by these 3D printers.

I'd also like to add a pic of terzinator's unique Thorens here...I think it qualifies for this thread due to the unique plinth and color! =D>

Something very 80's retro about it, too! :-k

thanks, Vinyl Master.

Maybe I should go with Harvest Gold or Avocado Green, as I was definitely a child of the 60s and 70s. :smoking:

Alrighty then...I just saw this on my local Craigslist...Would it have held a record player or is this just a box for records? It's a Zenith Tune Box from 1976... :-k 43527
Not sure exactly what this box was for but it was a limited edition in honor of the American Revolution Bicentennial, circa 1976. Bicentennial Minutes, anyone?

That looks like a TV repairman's tube caddy. Tubes were still in many televisions in the mid 1970's

Some of you may remember the Pioneer acoustic tone arm offered on eBay which I won. This thing is for real and is stereo. It truly is acoustic and requires no electricity whatever.

It is likely to spend time on my R-O-K Rondine 2, however it seems fitting to me that it be on a machine which also requires the use of NO electricity.

I did a search for a record player driven by a Stirling engine to get some idea of could be done. Steam would be acceptable as well if I could get it quiet enough. Of coarse a spring driven motor would also also be acceptable.

Here is the result of the Stirling engine search:



Apparently there were less than ten of these made, so I have to believe it would be very expensive. I have a lot of projects in the Q, but this is sure inspiration to try to bring off a Sterling powered record player.
