RCA Stereo

I spotted this beauty and thought I would share.  Good price, and should make someone a great stereo.

Is that a three-channel stereo?
I'm great at multi-tasking.  I can listen, ignore, and forget all at the same time.

I'd say that with that big woofer in the middle that it is a 3 channel.  Nice price.

Picard,  What model it this thing?  I'm curious what amp it has. 

Thanks, Bill

I recall that and did NOT comment. That was before I got a small and middle version of your large "VCR series" 3-channel with living stereo AM-FM. I paid $75 for the larger one, 30 for the smaller. Both are dirty but complete.

Have you worked on yours? I have not, but am looking forward to working on my three tube RCA consoles as we go into dark season :P

One of mine has the reverb amp and it appears this one might, under the stereo balance knob.. 

Your amp has a three PP channels  ;) while both mine use and RS189c three channel singe ended chassis.

Bill,  That looks like a steal , how far is it from you?

Picard, thank you for the repost.

Dave, about 3 hours.  Right now I do not have time to go after it.  I'll keep an eye on it and maybe in a few weeks, if it's still there, I'll make the trip.

I was told it didn't work so  I just stuck it on a shelf and never touched it. I don't like that style too much but it was so clean I couldn't pass it up . I think I paid $125

It's not my favorite cabinet either.  I believe the guts are the same as Larry Hillis three channel with the rocket looking speakers.  I think his model is PC16.  I could be wrong on that.

First, I was wrong Larry's Model is PS16.  Sorry!

Second, it followed me home.  :)  The link I posted earlier for the Craig's list ad is now in my garage waiting it's Saturday bath.  ;)
