ok, Vintage Hi-Fi peeps, I have a moral dilemma.
I bought this old Packard Bell (yes, THAT PB) and Garrard console record player/radio for not a ton of money. I'd say cosmetically it's a B/B+, the FM radio does not work. I want to rework the unit a little bit and hide an LCD tv inside of the lid and add an ipod dock, kinda bring it to the 21st century. Am I blaspheming a good piece of vintage gear or am I onto something here? I know a lot of people don't listen to the radio anymore, so I'm not overly concerned about that, but the record player is a nice feature to have.
here's a pic I snagged from the webz:
Also, there's a store who has the same one I bought and they are asking $465 for it. Doesn't mean they'll get it, but am I potentially ruining a good unit? Or could I get a lot more if I have a snazzy TV and Ipod dock tucked inside if I sell it?
