Vintage Lafayette stereo receiver - $100 (Blaine to Bellingham)

As a retirement hobby I get and restore vintage audio equipment

This is a vintage receiver that I have replaced almost all the capacitors and done some maintenance functions

There were a few caps I could not access in the tuner board

The sound quality is excellent ! The tuner is not working like new but specialized equipment is necessary to align a tuner. As a result some stations do not receive in stereo mode and the acritune feature does not work

I think $100 is a fair price, the value of my work alone is $100, or you might have some vintage audio equipment to trade, working or not

It will be in my collection until it sells


note that this model has a quirk that is easily resolved. when the set if turned on a loud pop come from the speakers. this is resolved by using the remote connections for the speakers and waiting 5 seconds after tuning the power switch to the main position and them moving on to the remote speaker selection

Check out the ebay sales, you can see my price is very fair
