Seeburg 1000 Background Music System

This thing is so damn cool! Watch how the top and bottom axles rotate in opposite directions so the grooves are going the right way for the tonearm. And watch for the entire stack to rise back to the top. I wonder how many stores I heard one of these in?

The guy couldn't figure out that he needed to loosen those wing nuts, which allow the spring suspension to absorb the shocks of him closing the door too hard. And that annoying voice! Where are his brothers Daryll and Daryll?

It's like iTunes with vacuum tubes! Although even my computer doesn't have self-cleaning brushes for the hard drive heads.

You're right. That is so cool. The engineers of the past were amazing. And that thing is built sturdy as hell.
