I have a pretty nice empty XVIII cabinet. It might be a nice marriage of parts. I can easily get my half to Union or APS. Jerry Blais

Eh, it's a beautiful machine that looks a lot better in person than in the pictures -- no need to start doing transplants or part it out. The trouble spots are fairly serious, but really, 90% of it is in good shape. I've moved it to a different corner and, since it's been posted so long without a sale, I'm gonna withdraw it from sale and hope that maybe someday I will get around to the repairs. Meanwhile it's my go-to player for acoustic records -- sounds great!

Instead of reposting it, I'm just going to bring up this old thread. My dog, a sweet 11-year-old standard poodle, has had tumors growing on her right wrist for the past five years. They were removed once at great expense, but started to grow back six months later. In the past couple months, they've become a huge problem, with open wounds that can't heal, and the vet says it's time to amputate. It's breaking my heart, but I've scheduled the operation. Lulu's been with me since day one -- she was born into my hands -- and she's my best buddy. I'll do what will ultimately be best for her either way, but it would help if I can sell this machine because the operation and recovery will be fairly expensive. All of which has nothing to do with the value of this magnificent and very restorable machine, which despite its flaws is very reasonably priced. But her ongoing vet bills have been and are my only reason for selling it.

Please leave a note in the thread if sending a PM. Thanks.
