Free stereo system

Marantz PM-54 amplifier.  About 30 years old, worked well up until 3 years ago when it was put in storage.

Comes with a pair of Sony SS-J50 bookshelf speakers that also worked well until put into storage.

It's a good sounding system and the price is right - free.

Maple Leaf pickup.
