My HRO 60 with speaker and all the usual coil trays and wooden cabinet cost
me $550 and it is a 9. It had also been recapped and aligned. I probably
paid too much for it but it was exactly what I was looking for. Nostalgia
is a wonderful thing but can be satisfied by very small bites. My AM
station sits here unused while I play radio with modern stuff but they are
nice to look at.
