The Easter bunny has come early this year 😁

These have been on my must have list since the day i joined this site. I have been working flat out and been neglecting this passion, so I've decided to spoil myself when these 3 became available at a very very decent price.
The 767 needs a bit of work.... a lot of work..a lot of parts! 😪😪
The JVC and Diatone are in pretty good condition, just needing the usual detailing & rebelting. Note to self, I need to keep in mind not to blow them up with my 240v AU supply

I find my self just standing there and stare at these ones. The 767 is impressive! I can only imagine what the 777 and 900s would be like.
Until you own the Diablo, i dont think you realise how big the 10inch driver really is... its huge for a boombox! But I particularly love the look of the Diatone. It's such a great looker, true to the definition of boombox in my opinion.

Now to find time and wrap up some ongoing restorations!

Congratulations on acquiring some grails on your list!  All three are gorgeous, but I give the edge to the Diatone.  :drool: :cool:

I've seen that people say it's rare.. is it really that rare?... limited production? Or everyone holds on to them?

The Diatone makes up for any Sharp stuff. Give us a run down of it when you get chance.
