Sorry, I'm just reading all of this.  Congrats on your newest member of the family Greg.  Mittens, should have a much more comfortable ride in the Tahoe rather than under the hood when you head to AZ.   ;)

Chris, you need to turn up your thermostat maybe just a little.   :)

Retirement can be a good thing, or it can be a bad thing.  ;)

I didn't know RCA made a super set, I have only seen a deluxe or lesser models.  This one, and my blonde, have high end features electronically, audio, speakers, but the cabinet is typical of the 50's.  The top and sides are masonite that's had a woodgrain painted, or how ever they did it back then.  The front is the real wood surrounding the picture tube and speaker area.  This one is definitely in better shape than my blonde set.  Mine has the finish coming off the masonite part.

I know this is not a TV site, but I spotted this on Craig's list and thought it was cool.  Especially since I have one just like it except Blonde.  Oh, by the way, it's not a color set.  It was RCA's top of the line around 1957-58.  It included a hifi speaker system, (woofer and 2 tweeters) and a place to plug in a phonograph.

I guess the first thing I need to say is WOW, that's an impressive collection.  The next thing is WHY, why do you want to part with all your treasures?  You have such a nice variety of toys.  There are a couple of things I would love to have but this time of year it's just not in the cards.  Have you set prices yet?  In my area, west coast of Michigan, I see things on Craig's list that just sit there.  It's really sad, I'm guessing when they don't sell they go to the landfill.   :(  Please don't to that!

Thanks for sharing,

Bill

Large cabinet, you would expect it to be very impressive inside.  There is a lot of empty real estate in there.   ;)

Greg,

Because I'm old and forgetful, I forgot to include that info in the first two threads, pages 1 and 2, it's found in the last post which is page number 3.

I'm not sure what it is, I have not seen one like that before.  Hopefully someone else will know.  :)

The few caps I could read, as most are facing in the wrong direction ;),  were in the 400 volt range.  As a very wise person once told me...never start a project without the proper service info.  I still need that and that will tell all.  :)

Sightings / 1963 Magnavox Stereo

I spotted this on Craig's list Grand Rapids Michigan. I thought it would spark some interest.  Take a look at all the photos and notice the warranty info.  It's dated August of 1963.  This has to be one of the last tube units Magnavox produced.
