Next to make some more room in there. I wanted to keep as many wires as possible to make it easier to use the existing plugs, switches & outputs. Needless to say, this puppy won't be playing any more tapes!
After pulling out some boards labelled 'Dolby' I though, 'I wonder how much they are worth?' And then I though, 'I wonder how much a working unit is worth?' A quick google showed that in the right condition and for the right buyer it might be worth a few hundred dollars. Well we will never know if this unit worked (although I assume that it did). It seems to be in extremely good condition (a bit of finger grime and a price tag on the front should clean off easily). When I am finished with it, I think it will be priceless.
First I hooked up the 5v power to make sure that it works. Yes it does!

Next I set about wiring in the 5v and 12v power trying to keep it neat and safe. The two power supplies fit side by side like it was designed that way. Then I wrestled in some 240v wires and presto, working power. I think it needs some tape though to keep things safe.
