I'm not Nataku but , I'll chime in. That's a reel to reel tape recorder. Probably just one used for voice. Built in speakers are generally a sign of lower-end audio equipment. Good quality reel to reel decks are worth grabbing though!

...that's when I assume the original owner took the item to the dry cleaners to get a stain removed, it didn't come out, so got donated. I check stuff with cleaners tags even closer than usual.

Sorry double-tap: concur. Likely an institutional model - school, office or govt. The one like in Pulp Fiction is what you want.

I'll echo what others said. Nothing worth buying. Late 50's-early 60's. Probably institutional from the simplicity and tank-like build quality. These basic home or institutional models (suit-case body, built in speakers, etc) aren't worth buying.

The ones you want have lots of gauges, buttons/switches and dials and most likely (but not in all cases) a brushed silver metal front. See images below. They most likely will not have any reels on them if you find them at a thrift.

FYI
Something looks off on this. Moncler tags are very precise and the way it looks like the letters dig into the ring at the end makes me question if it's authentic.

Huh, really? I see the moon on there and it made me think arabic as well. I'm more familiar with hindi than Urdu though, so I'll defer to you if you know.

^^ Would be cool to see.

 

 

Slow start for me - building a new secondary system, g**damn IKEA shelving won't hold too many LP's but ... again ... a start.  Need that Marantz, and decide on speakers.  The Epicure set I found recently would just be too massive I think.
