I made it in!


A few months ago I was in Vietnam and was hanging out in Cong Caphes where old radios are displayed throughout the coffee shops and got inspired...


I recently acquired a Goldstar TSR-800 I had this badboy as a teenager, and was a little rough with it, so enter the new old)

It's a mighty fine looking box, but has a few issues:


The tapedeck (of course) wont play, no spin, though it does spin in FF and RWD

At high volumes, above mid way-depending on bass level, cuts out/drops off


I bought this as the start of a display collection for my restaurant....so... I am a busy guy and it may not be a great idea for me to disassemble any old electronics

And, of course the one audio/stereo repair guy in the area just retired!

I'd like to see it 100%, though it is mainly display.... what would you do, or recommend?



(I also own a Sony CF-580, which is a pretty sweet preserved boomer)

And, can you tell a newb how to post a pic?


Thanks for all you do and keep on BOOMING!
