The Luxman looks very elegant
Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

Love the look of the PD-375

Something similar. This one actually plays records. 7" singles only. You hear sound is the best I can say about it... It was a repair like a lot of repairs I get in - for nostalgia versus practical usage. The Lady just wanted to show her children what she played with as a kid their age...

I've always been fascinated by analog meters on tape players. Spent lot of time listening to Willie Nelson & Cliff Richard on my father's deck.
