It's a SE with a posh badge.
Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year

Oh I see, 'Original SE'. I've not seen one of those before. The kids smashed my laptop screen and it's hard to see. Sorry Ian. Merry Christmas all.

So after some negotiation, I've come to an agreement with the seller and I'm now waiting for a partial refund. I expected a reasonable condition CD67 mkII OSE to arrive but unfortunately the seller used a library picture and I got what you can see in the pics a player that functions but is in a very bad state. The front panel isn't really salvageable but I may just get it stripped and plated to use on my own player which is in a 67 chassis as there is a little more room. Any way after some swapping about, I now have a working mkII 67 OSE in a MKi SE case!!! Not really what I wanted but it'll go back on eBay in excellent condition after xmas and hopefully contribute to funding my unhealthy obsession!!! Just sold a KI last week so I'm down to 5 of the 63/67 variety now lol!

In fairness to the seller, I'd actually asked for the post to be moderated to hide his identity which hopefully will be done when the mods have time.

Cant believe this is xmas no4 for me here and I'm a latecomer to the party!

Happy Christmas chaps, enjoy and be merry!

Merry Christmas guys!

(For those who are new or don't remember, I used to haunt this thread a few years ago.)

I haven't taken my CD63 (also in a CD67SE case by the way) apart for a couple of years now!
You could say I'm cured. There is hope for you Ian!
Mind you, I stopped after my third player, I fear you may be past the point of no return.

That player is in awful condition Ian, it isn't a fair deal at all, too bad. Ben: It's a 67SE (picture 8).

edit: LOL a lot of activity all of a sudden! I didn't read the last posts, sorry.
Merry Christmas and happy modding!

All the bits for my fleas and PSU have arrived except the oscillators. I'm looking forward to building them.

The use of library pictures, without stating so, gives you the right to reject the item on the grounds of " Not as described".

In my opinion, the practise should be banned!

He should have stated that he had "renovated" the case.


Aside from that, "Best wishes to all for the New Year"

I'm at home for Xmas and New Year ( for a change )
