Never saw anything like this.  Overpriced IMO, but rather neat in any event   https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/ele/d/obscure-1980-panasonic/6596885183.html

Overpriced for local sale, but he could probably get that on eBay.   Boomboxes are hot.

Not yet. The display on the Denon disappeared.  Probably a bad fuse so swapping it out soon.  Probably just watch less sports and listen to more music.......

So, were you able to make any of this work?

I didn't want to strip them down either, so listed them for half of what I sold my other pair for.  They do have the tweeters and sound great. I have had a couple offers on them but no one has pulled the trigger yet.   
 I would guess the previous owner was that rare bird, a picky audiophile, and put cotton over the tweeter to make them less bright.   But that's just a wild guess.

Well, if they don't sell, I can hook them up to one of my five tvs while watching some baseball. :)

Batter up!!

Honestly, I'd be happy to get back what I paid.   But I am curious to see how this one plays out if you will be kind enough to let us know.   Thanks.

^^^ I just noticed, is it my imagination or did somebody remove the tweeters? ^^^

Someone seen your post here mentioning your find of these a few weeks back and are flipping them. Good speakers reduced to garage use unless you put a ton of effort into them or money on a re-veneer.

Yeah, somebody here said they were looking for a pair. but I didn't pull the grills in store and see the tweeters gone.   That's way too much money for those in that condition.   I passed on them simply because I didn't want to strip them down.

You got to love when an electronics repair shop states "I turned it on platter moves, I did see strobe flash...no further testing done."  On an $1800 table they want you to buy AS-IS.  Outstanding

So a restoration project?  He is dreaming. $300,  only if it is minty.  Assume it will need to be restored.
