  1. Found one yesterday in a charity shop for 20 pounds,cleaned it up,connected it up and off i went.Nice sound,well pleased,brings Zeppelin and weather Report albums back to life even though my record player is not up to much(Technics SL-BD22).

  2. Could anyone please direct me to a place where I can learn how to check/replace the fuses on my CR450? All the lights/needles still work but no sound, even with headphones. It worked well last time I turned it on ?4-5 yrs ago and has just been sitting in basement. Any suggestions other than fuses? I’m new to repair (e.g. do I remove screws from back or bottom? ). I loved my old stereo and need to get it going if possible. Thanks so very much for any assistance!
