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.
