Rockola is a much better engineered and constructed box than the OMT. Add to that, the electronics / parts are fairly generic and usually readily available. Compared to Rowe, the service and programming menus are more straightforward (unless you've spent the last 15 years operating only Rowe).

Although we sell these, I recommend them more from a service viewpoint than a sales pitch....

I've had one for about 4 years and hasn't given me a bit of trouble. My 2
other Rowe/AMI CD100s sound much better to me though.

I gotta vote for the Wurlitzer over the Rock-Ola.
Both of them sound great.
The Rock Ola has a few metal trim parts that are plastic on the Wurlitzer,
but in a home setting it's NEVER going to matter.
Bottom line to me is that the Wurlitzer LOOKS better because of the original
style buttons and hidden CD title pages.
The Rock Ola has CD title pages and buttons that stick out in front and look
out of place on a 40's era juke. Plus the Rock Ola has more animation that
is a little overboard to me.
I shopped hard and went with the Wurlitzer about 5 years ago and I'm VERY
happy with it.

Different strokes

I like the extra animation on the rockola...I also like the fact that
you have a title strip for each CD...

You are correct that the Wurlitzer looks closer to the original sesign
though...

FWIW I own one of each...
