Item Description: Beautiful modern stereo / hi-fi cabinet in solid & veneered teak with brass hardware manufactured by the Clairtone Sound Corporation, Ltd., Toronto, CA. This is a great piece of vintage equipment, sold in as-is condition (no guarantees as to its working order are stated or implied). With a little extra care, the tube amp (with EL 84 tubes) and Garrard turntable will bring out the warm, rich analog tones of your vinyl LPs. Audiophiles and music hounds everywhere know that digital sound reproduction falls just a bit short; it just can't compare to analog sound!
Or simply update the components for a vintage look and thoroughly contemporary sound.
Tight woodgrain throughout is just wonderful, with a rich, dark patina. Hinged top opens to reveal the turntable and main control console which Clairtone designed for expandability; inputs are provided for external speakers, TV, tape deck, etc. Cloth-covered stereo speakers are hidden by sliding panel doors when not in use.
The cabinet rests sturdily on the splayed legs; no wobble at all. Overall exceptional condition with almost no visible wear.
A very welcome addition to the modern home.
