Very cool! It doesn't appear that the horn is split "right" and "left" to continue the theme of the tonearm. Not that it would improve the sound any I suppose, but it would seem consistent anyway.

Just my own gut take on it, but my guess is that the speaker grill is in upside down.

Nice find! Happy New Year!

Thanks!! Happy New Year! To my ears it seems to have a slight reverb effect. There is definitely a sound difference as I am continuing playing different records. Here is an impressive one: https://youtu.be/Pnjdzdbme8Q

Spiffied up the tonearm and TT edge with Flitz metal polish! Very impressed with this product! Prior to this, I buffed them out with my dremel tool attachment.

That looks very good. I know patina appeals to many collectors, but good metal polishes really bring out the original life of the plating.

I enjoyed the video demonstrating this machine, too! It has a very nice sound and looks great. One for any collector.

Thanks! I dont mind a little patina but this one looked bad.lol. I have since rebuilt the reproducer after that video and have others posted on my channel.
