Today I made a straight across swap for a 100% working Eico ST-70 for a spare Carver TFM-25 I was no longer using. I probably lost a bit on this swap but I really wanted one of the old Eico or Dynaco tube pieces for a restoration project so I think I did alright to get one in fully functioning condition.
This thread will journal the restoration and upgrade process. I'm posting pictures of the unit as it is now and will post more as work progresses. I'm totally stoked about this project and especially happy to get it right before Christmas. At the same time, I also made a trade for an old Thorens TD-160 turntable which is pretty much a basket case. I will also be journaling its' restoration in another thread.
So here are the initial pics of the unit as I received it:
