The little X like yours will always have a place in my heart. It was the first Victrola I purchased about 1975 for $125. It has the great classic Victrola style in a small package. Thanks, Jerry

Beautiful machine! Thanks for sharing - it was my very first machine: picked mine up at a rummage sale in 1961, for $8, and it's still the center of my living room, and the machine I normally play my acoustics on.

I use an Exhibition - I see you have a No. 1; truth to tell, I switch back and forth.

Thanks Paul. At least I know what the cabinet looks like now :)
If you get a chance, the cabinet dimensions would be great too, just to get an idea of the size compared to other machines ;)
