I recently purchased an old Seeburg jukebox for the home. The original amp that was in it needed some work, so I sent it to an acquaintance of mine to have rebuilt. That leaves me with no amp at the moment to listen to this thing because I stupidly sold my last Receiver at a garage sale this summer for $10. I'm looking for a stereo amplifier or receiver I can use on a temporary basis while my buddy is rebuilding mine.

Anyone got any old electronics they are looking to unload? My receiver sat in storage for over 10 years before I finally decided to unload it at a garage sale this summer, so I'm guessing there are others here who have ditched their large receivers in favor of bluetooth speakers or whatever.

It needs to be something with a phono input (preferably with a built in preamp). With the speakers on the jukebox, I need about 100W per channel on the amp/receiver.

PM me if you got anything you would be willing to part with. Interesting trades considered.

This doesn't look like a man who's happy with his stereo performance, now does it?

Have you tried any local pawn shops?

Yeah, tried a couple yesterday. Lots of receivers out there, but none that really suited my needs. MANY receivers produced in the past 20 years have dropped the phono input.

Does Martroy still exist? I used to do a lot of business with Ray back in the day.

Last time I was over in the area around 2-3 years ago it was.

Oddly enough I have an old Onkyo receiver with phono inputs--maybe 20-25yrs. But aren't phono jacks just standard RCA jacks.-- I,e, the same as AUX, etc.
