New Technics vs. old

Can we finally put Reel to Reel out of its misery? Put it to rest people.
@brettmcee rap is pretty disgusting stuff. You don’t need anything more than a crappy $50 Walmart stereo to listen to that.  
Serious turntable popping problem finally solved!!

Problems with Paypal payment?
Tonydennison, PayPal is the only assurance that a buyer has when conducting a transaction with a stranger. Consider for a minute how eBay screws over the buyer to protect its sellers (rejecting all claims when item arrives in much worse condition ...
