Default FOC 1970s Tristar compact music centre

Cheap ish 1970s music system with turntable cassette and radio
Comes with manual
Looks like it would clean up well
Apologies for poor pictures - if anyone is interested I will get it out and take better pics and can try it out for you
I can’t find the original speakers but have a pair of small Aiwa 1990s speakers you can have (not the best quality sorry!)
Collection Garstang Lancashire
Free!

Occasionally I head down to Manchester way of that helps with transportation

I repaired one of these a couple of years ago, think they were east European. Mine was badged Europhon. I have seen other names stuck on the same unit too. Not bad performance for a budget item, better than the Crosley/steepletone junk of today.

Can you send me the pages of the manual and how much it costs to buy the record player?

The player is Free Of Charge (FOC), but would need to be collected.
