There are several websites with lists of "known compatible" hardware, so if you do your shopping right, it works great. I installed right off of the retail install disc (that was only $29.99 btw), and have done all but the latest update. We have several "real" MACs in the house too, as my wife is a school teacher, so we get a hell of a deal on the retired macs from school (most recently we got a MAC Book core duo for $200). I started out in programming (as400, fortran, visbual c++, etc etc), but ended up in IT. I'm an automotive mechanic now for MINI USA...how did i make that jump??? Anyway, runs great and I love it. As far as your MacSE, I have an original Mac Classic in the basement...
ACCCCCHHHH!! Clone! Clone!! Spread panic in the streets & wear garlic around your neck!
Doesn't the classic have a color screen? Mine would cough sputter & die if you showed it a color screen!
So you run OSX straight out of the box? What happened to needing the roms to be able to run a mac OS? Visual C++, I have one thing to say about it....Visual my behind! Maybe, if you read three 1250 page books on it you can get to the visual part!
to know a lot of basic and enough Fortran to find the keys in a game.....
Heh heh! Yeah, I used
to speak German too. Ich Bin eine Krankenkoph!
: Dude, you got a model number on that baby? It's not the one with the "mood fireplace" is it?? Didn't Fisher break off on thier own long ago??
This one: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/2464508
If it's that one, you may have a problem. It's not one item, it's actually 3! They don't go for what thier worth but fixing can be expensive, half the parts have to come from Germany. Acch mein Gott!
This guy has the other one, the one that I've seen: http://audiokarma.net/forums/showthr...=195551&page=2
The cord is the easy part, the soldering the hard part & speaking of parts, not too bad cause Marantz made most of it. Does the turntable run?
Edit: Sorry, just saw, good restorer. You mean someone in your area or are you going to do it yourself? I can do the wood work & some things like power, motors & that stuff but I won't touch any caps that are on it. Those things were deadly, you have to find someone who can drain them before you R&R them.Edited by BriSleep - 11/22/10 at 2:53pm
