Interesting machine..I guess there weren't a lot of them made.  The unit 
we have is in great shape externally but someone left it in a flight 
case in some basement that leaked in Butte, MT .  The disks appear to be 
pretty much ruined.  The photosensetive material has faded off a good 
portion of every disk I've looked at so far.  It is a silver emulsion 
process they used I believe on plastic.    Anybody ever dealt with one 
of these?  I'm sure we can get the mechanical aspects going again..  two 
keyboards, two disk drives for LP sized disks :-).  They are reading 
analog optical I believe.  -Bob
