I have everything except the operator's manual for a Stereo Theater.  I'd like to have one for mine.  I have been considering reproducing some of the stuff you got with a new Magnavox, but nobody seemed interested and I don't need 25 of something for myself.
I'm great at multi-tasking.  I can listen, ignore, and forget all at the same time.

Are you willing to part some extras? Mine came with absolutely nothing except a spare badge that needed to be glued back on.

The most complete documentation I have came with my 1961 Symphony.  I have the hang tag, the owner's manual, the platter mat, several warranty cards, that type of thing.  My idea was to have this stuff reproduced and add to it as people got something they would like to contribute.  Then make the repops available to members of this forum only for a reasonable cost, probably just what it cost to have the reproductions done.   Owner's manuals would be a huge asset if we could reproduce some of those.  CG and Imperial would be easy.  I have one for a Symphony.  Many instruments would share an owner's manual.  They were not model specific.  I have never seen one for a Stereo Theater.  Nobody showed interest, so I have never had them reproduced.  I don't need 25 and that was the minimum order of each thing.

All that stuff is in AZ.  We could work on it this winter, if you'd like.  I'd also like to repop the model/serial number tags.  It seems those are always degraded.  We could also do the wiring diagrams that are pasted on the inside of the cabinet.

Maybe the solution is just to make high-quality scans.  Then everybody who wanted the literature could download it and have it printed in the quality they prefer, at their own expense.
