Who would want a vintage Rek-O-Kut these days? They may have been built like tanks, but, on stereo records especially, they were rumble machines.

Right, so I see. It is like Wharfedale speakers, Altec anything, etc. I consider it deceptive merchandising, imagine if you bought a Ford that was made in China!
I am sure Esoteric sells good products, but buying the name does not make it a REAL Rec-O-Kut. Grumble, sorry.
