Yes I do. I found one at a flee market with a turntable, and dual cassette player. The guy wanted $125.00, but I just didn't have that much on me. I went back 3 times to admire that thing. Finally it came to the end of the day and I wanted to take my friend to see the player. The guy was getting ready to load it up and saw me for the fourth time. He asked if I still wanted the player and two huge speakers and of course I said yes but I didn't have $125.00. He sold it to me for $75.00 because he did not want to have to load it again. It pays to stay late and keep hanging around I guess. Anyway I will never give it up because I have a lot of vinyl records and cassestes to play.

i imagine you can find them, but not in a regular store...it would have to come from the internet or from a specialty shop...someday when i can afford one, i'm gonna get another one and play those old records i have...gosh the memories it would bring back...thanks for responding
