This is an old Heatkit Model AD-27 Compact Stereo Center from 1969. Included in this auction is the original manual along with several advertising pages. It has an FM stereo tuner along with a BSR McDonald 500-A turntable. Also included is the original BSR record changer piece that you need to play the small records in good working condition. It has a nice wood case that features a tambour roll up door. It is a 28 pound unit measuring 22" x 15" x 8" tall. CONDITION AND PLAYABILITY WISE - Cosmetically it has a nice damage free wood case with some minor scratches. A nice faceplate for the radio. Nice rubber on the turtable with some minor sratches. The roll up door works good and has a small repair on one of the slats but looks good with 1 small repair to the underside fabric. All parts are intact. It powers up fine and tunes in the radio stations. Tuner needs oiling and the control knob pots cleaned. Turtable works and has sound but needs cleaning and adjustment and maybe a new needle. It has a real slow go on the auto feature and the speed control is stuck on 33rpm SO what you are getting here is a good looking unit that works but needs cleaning oiling and adjusting. I dont see anything missing or broken though. This is a unit that will make a nice display as is or you can do some cleaning, oiling and ajusting to get it just right. ... read more
