re: 480

Just found one of these at the local Good-Will for $3. Not a scratch on the outside. Had a slight chatter in the playback mechanism but a little lubrication and it runs good as new. I am impressed with the wide frequency response on this thing!

Just bought one of these for $5. Underneath the dirt there was not a mark on it and it performs beautifully! Thanks for the manuals :-)
