This beautiful unit plays in both directions, FFs and RWs smoothly. It sounds great for it’s age, nice crisp warm sound, pots are all reasonably clean. Everything lights up as it should. The only real flaw is the output knob shaft snapped off, and the knob is somewhat difficult to turn. Any decent tech or savvy amateur could easily replace the knob pot at very low cost. Or, you can just set output where you want it on the deck and leave it. Also, please note that this is a vintage unit that has not been recently serviced. As such, it may soon need some basic servicing and maintenance, as these units do require some upkeep to run reliably over time. This will be packed with exquisite care.
