Crikey! That makes me feel old. I was shopping for over priced resistors in London Tandy stores the year you were born.

About the time you were buying the overpriced resistors, I got my very first CD player at a Tandy shop in Paris. Feast your eyes on this beauty!

Exactly! I remember walking into King George Electronics in St-Hubert (or Beloeil?) and was floored! It was like, Radio Shack times three plus tons of stuff they didn't even have!
That place no longer sells this kind of stuff. Oh the memories...

What's this? Thou shalt not plug the Digital Music source into the Vacuum-induced heating electron-emitting device amplifier... Mono Garrard turntable only. Or AM or FM tuner. No multiplex allowed.

wow. 34$ in 1959. That's almost ten times as much today. And harder to come by in those days!

Unbuilt Heathkits always seem to go for a lot, but surely this fellow is joking?
Of course you just need one 'collector' to come along and you are set!
