Item: Technics CD-4 Quadraphonic System (Model SS-2900D)
Location: Brisbane (southside)
Price: $375 (offers considered)
Item Condition: Fair to Good Condition
The electronics work and the cabinetry is in good condition. The turntable needs at least a belt. I'm not sure of the state of the stylus.
Reason for selling: No Longer Required
This was my father-in-law's system. He bought it new and used the electronics (with a CD player plugged-in) up until less than a year ago. He's now moved into a small unit and the system won't fit.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or Paypal
For a collector this is a great opportunity to pickup a quadraphonic system in fairly good condition. It can be used a stereo system, and as I said you can connect analogue sources to play CDs or any streaming source. It will up-mix 2 channel to 4 channel but don't know how well it does that. It can play both discrete and matrix quadraphonic recordings, as well as regular stereo LPs. It has headphone outputs for 2 or 4 channel listening. I have done a quick check and all four speakers appear to be working fine.
The system includes a turntable (needs a belt), AM/FM Tuner and amplifier. The amp has a tape loop for recording or which can be another input (e.g. CD player).
There is an input for an electric guitar or mic, if you want to play or sing along with what's playing.
There is a collection of nineteen 4 channel LPs that you can have with the system.
I have a scanned copy of the manual, it's a bit faded but readable.
There is a good Akai GXC-325D cassette deck in the cabinet, which fits nicely and is on a slide out base for usage. It is advertised separately, but if you buy the Technics system and want the tape deck and it hasn't sold, you can have it with the system.

Feel free to ask any questions.
Given the size and weight of the system, pickup is preferred but I can discuss shipping if you want to make the arrangements for its collection.
