Wow...

I don't know what to think about that... I do have to say, that toroidal transformer looks very much like the ones in the OMEC, Jimmy Bean, and OMEC digital...

Hopefully someone will buy it and do a full restoration.

It could be a nice head shell and chassis.

Ironically I have all the bits to convert it back, just sad to see.

Price is climbing to a financially non-viable level, but you never know!

Oh dear, that is horrible!
I remember seeing those ILP modules advertised in 'Practical Electronics' when I was a kid.

Well I bid what I thought it was worth bearing in mind have the stuff to restore properly

It went for £735 !!! With no board, transformers, choke, sockets or correct pots :roll:

Hope it does the quality restoration for someone

A lot of money for something that will never be original.

I know. I kept my eyes on the auction, I think that went for crazy money.
