You are correct Ken, it is a Philco. I could tell by the knobs, then I noticed Philco on the changer.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is self contained.  The two woofers are mounted together, the horns are separated left and right.  The left one you can see, the right one is above the right hand amp and is not visible.  A separate speaker was available.

Music / Re: Zenith demonstration record

Chris!

The album is Columbia, and is called "Around the World".  Ray Conniff does Lady of Spain, Moulin Rouge, Lisbon Antigua.  Michel Legrand does Mademoiselle de Paris, The last time I saw Paris, April in Paris. Andre Kostelanetz does Wonderful Copenhagen, Waltzing Matilda, Calcutta.  Jerry Murad's Harmonicats does Soboney, Adios Muchachos, Mexican hat dance. 

I have not listened to it yet.  That will have to wait until I get home. 

I also agree with your statement about growing up in the 50-60's.  I know we were just kids back then, but looking back, it just seemed so much easier.

I actually just purchased a "Zenith" record at Goodwill the other day.  Can't go wrong for a buck!

The next time forum member Pickard posts something, check out his stacking.  I think he has a masters degree in it.  :)

Your comment is interesting Chris.  I would love to hear it, just to see how different it does sound.

This morning I checked the downloads and found that my sighting is a 1959 Stereorama.  1 ST 205F.  At least that's what I think it is.  It mentions a single 8 inch midrange, which is strange, three 5 inch speakers, and two 15 inch speakers.  20 watt dual channel amp.  Am I wrong to think this is kind of rare?

The only company I know of was a the speaker builder, Bozak.  They offered cabinets, that matched their speaker cabinets, that you could fill with your components of choice.  My Avatar shows what I had once upon a time.  I kick myself for selling it.  :(

Thanks Greg, they are great pictures.  I always enjoy seeing rare items, and the Corvair is rare.  There is one that shows up in car shows back in Michigan, but not as nice as this one.  And of course I always enjoy seeing your car.  :)

Muskegon Michigan still has an operating drive in theater.  I should go to the movies next summer.  ;)

I spotted this on Craig's list and thought I would share.  I have not tried to find it in the downloads yet. The cabinet is kind of different for a Magnavox, and the speakers do not make sense either.  What's with the odd 8 inch speaker?

Wow Greg, it sounds like I really missed a good one.  You know the reason why I was not there.  And, pictures would be nice.   :)

Roger,

Greg always refers to staking.  Maybe you can get some pointers from him.  ;)
