Hey guys, got the PC 11 finaly. Its even got the original manual and papers.😳👍😀
And since the PC is located less than an hour away, the seller is shipping it free of charge.

The last PC 55 I bought also came with all original manual and papers and on top of that, sold to me by the original, now 71 years old, owner. He had bought the PC 55 for $600CND in april 1984.
Just a fun fact.

The PC-55 is a great BB.  But you dont want to go inside...  Man is it ever complicated techno.

Bought 2 Paradigm speakers that will be modified to fit like the original speakers. Fittting the original front grills Is the real chalange. The reason for this project is the bass missing with the original speakers. The Paradigm produces incridible bass and amazing overall sound.
Will I call it a Pana-digm or a Para-sonic boombox now? 😜 IMG_2779.JPG


I added some Infinity speaker internals to my Sharp VZ3000 cabinets. Made a big difference :-)

Currently fixing up a Hitachi TRK-9100w. Got it stripped down ready for a bath and I've cleaned the pots, sliders and switches.

Speakers make a big difference. VZ3000 plays the records well? They’re not that many BB record player out there,
Good luck with that TRK!!

They’re are great BB. Fun to use and impressive... but stay out of it. But you’ve figured that already. 😄

Here are the speakers I used to modify my Panny RX-C300. That is why I can turn the volume to max with no distortion what so ever.
They sure perform great!

Thank you , I tell you cutting these up right was a hassle , now time to join the parts with 5 gallons of jb weld lol.

The best thing about the jb weld is I can almost mix it to match the case color.

Believe it or not the back is more work than the front. I cut all the pieces with a hand saw lol shiat worked 10x better than an electric saw because there was no melting as i was cutting.
