I agree with your choice of the Fireside A. The Home B would also be good: Does the Home have a change of reproducers? The Fireside should properly have a Model K.

I've got both kinds of music--classical & rag-time.

Hang onto the Fireside. They're like baby Triumphs.

Or, if that list is your collection, why not keep all of them?

Have fun and let us know what the plan is!

I love them all but it seems the Fireside is the strongest and most versate machine for everyday play.

I don’t have a K reproducer, I use a C and H. I noticed the price of a K is quite expensive, and heard they can damage a record that is too high or out of round. Also, I am not sure, but I heard that the K reproducers are of pot metal construction.

Well, the K that I have shows no signs of pot metal...
