Hey DJ Won'tcha Play That Song...Keep Me Dancin' Dancin' Allnight Allnight. Status: Gone 01-30-11
You know you always wanted to be a DJ! Here's your wheels of steel! Well, wheel of steel anyway! And it's probably not steel...whatev'.
I traded the Broyhill Basilia desk for this and the Eames Shell chairs last weekend.
It was an act of mercy. A buddy of mine was desperate for the desk. I might have a
lot of Brasilia but I'm not nearly as crazy about it as he. Anyway, he's happy...I'm
happy (I might just keep this...it sounds really good!) so all's well in the StL.
The electronics are all in working order. Turntable turns, radio pulls a strong
signal, plenty of "loudness"! The bass in these type of stereos is always a strong
point. I guess the cabinetry gives these a very thick, rich sound.
Note in the above pictures how the "doors" slide sideways to cover the speakers
for protection when not in use! It's the little details that make the difference.
The top has some finish issues but if I don't end up selling it, I'll try my hand at
refinishing just the top and see if I can help it out. Shouldn't be too difficult. And it's
not a priceless antique either.
Status update: Gone as of 01-30-11.
