Hi. John here in Parkside, Adelaide. I have been playing with sound systems since sitting on the floor in the lounge with the family and listening to The Goon Show on an AWA radiogram in the early 1960s. Dad upgraded the speaker from a Rola to a Magnavox twin cone, and later when I was about 10 years old I replaced the grille cloth that the cats had destroyed.

As I am now retired, I have been repairing stereo and hifi equipment for the past few months and advertising in Gumtree. It's not the main game, but I have fixed several radiograms including a Schaumburg Straus (Adelaide) a Videotron (Budapest, Hungary) a Kingsley (Melbourne) and a Kriesler (Sydney), all of which were great furniture pieces. The Kriesler is on its way to a new home in Singapore.

G'day John,

Welcome to the forums. Plenty of famous brands in your fleet of radios there. I imagine that the freight for a radiogram overseas wouldn't be too cheap.
