My last tenant left behind an RCA Victor VLP60 Turntable. Appears to be in great shape (the case needs some cosmetic work), but I can't find the power cord or speaker wires. I have zero experience with this kind of thing, so thought I would check with the experts. It's the 4 speaker "suitcase" style from, I believe, the 60's. See pictures. If it has value, I will hunt down the parts. If not... well... I won't. haha Anyone that can give me a clue as to where to find the missing parts and/or estimated value would be great!

Please re-size photos to max 256 Kb file and 800 x 800 pixels;
I believe these are the limits.

Posting a Sams Photofact cover sheet and a thread here from
ARF.

Let us know if this is your model. It should have 2 stereo speakers
with it. The AC power cord may be old style such as used in
old electric shavers, electric mixing beaters, et cetera.
Posting a photo of the AC plug-in on the record player will assist.

Parts sources depend on what repairs are needed, you'll
need to supply more information.

Parts for the record changer mechanism probably available
from the voice of music.com

This is a transistor amplified device, so you'll need to hook up
speakers and listen to the amp, to see if it is clean.

If the transistors are good, then you may need to only
replace electrolytic capacitors, if there is filter cap hum.

RE: Value. That is determined by you and someone who
wants to buy the item. The market is different in each
city in the U.S. A restored item is best to sell, otherwise,
vintage items don't sell for much, unrestored.

We need photos of what you have, though.

Thank you Hotwax. I'll work on figuring out how to resize the pics.

Thanks for the photos.

From them, I believe the speakers are attached
underneath the record player unit, somehow.
Check it out and let us know.

Also, send a pic with the lid open showing
the record changer.

1. Okay, now we see where and what type of AC cord end plug
that RCA uses.

Those were probably RCA only design, from my experience.

If you can contact the previous owner, they may have it.
That type AC cord is probably scarce.
Maybe someone will know a source for buying one.

2. Did you figure out if the speakers are attached on the
bottom as I queried ?

Thanks Ken for the resize app! Hotwax - Here is a picture showing the speakers as they are stored under the turntable. They just slide in and out. There is no contacting the original owner, so would appreciate hearing from anyone that knows where I can find a new cord.
