Roger!

Chris and I are both Michigan people.  Where is this store with the vintage appliances? 

Thanks,

Dave!  Not yet, but it's on the list.  :) :) :)  I have the Sam's 569 printed off so that's the first step.  ;)

Bill

PS:  Did you have any luck finding a Sam's for the B1000M?

Are we referring to the RCA 3 channel, or the Motorola 3 channel?   ::) ::) ;) ;) :)

Greg!  It makes sense with your comment, that as components ran out in 1962, that they would start using what was on the shelf.  My Symphony was run three, and is a 5 knobber, 6 tube tuner, with 12" woofers, and horns for tweeters.  Being run three, I'm sure it was at the end of production for the 1962 year.

This is the only forum I belong too, and it will probably remain that way.  I'm happy here.  :) :)

My Symphony is model ST-657A. Run number 3.  It has 12" woofers, horns, 9300 series amp, two tube FM multiplex.  It's a five knobber, with a six tube tuner, making it a series 100 tuner.  I think in 1962 you got what every was handy as the console moved down the assembly line. Nothing makes sense.

Dave,

I have a 1ST-657.  It looks just like yours under the hood, and the components inside.  It's on the list for a rebuild.  Hopefully sooner than later.

She was one of America's sweethearts, and just a great lady.

Chat / Re: cool stuff on the shelves
« on: May 13, 2019, 09:29:56 AM »
Here's a couple of things sitting on my shelves.  The GE radio I just picked up about two weeks ago from a guy with a booth of nothing but radios in an antique mall in Grand Rapids.  There is always a nice selection to pick from, and some cool stuff.  This one he had marked down to ten bucks.  He always claims that he has gone through them.  I plugged it in, and it took right off.  It plays great, and sounds great.  For ten bucks, you can't go wrong.

The microwave looking thing is a Seeburg 1000 background music system.  They played elevator type music in stores and such.  Cool piece, and when I found this years ago there was a years supply of record that came with it.  The records look similar to a 45, in that they have the big hole.  the records are larger, and play really slow.  The machine plays both sides of the record without turning the record over. There is a cartridge on both sides of the tone arm. 

Here's a link to the guys display.  As you can see this is an old photo.  My radio is still in the photo.

I love things that are FREE!   Nice find, and like Greg said, add speakers and stir.  You might be surprised.   :)
