Hi guys thanks for all your help, I was able to remove the stylus and install the nos one and it's great, thanks again

I'll have to do that tomorrow because I already came in from my shop, I spent 2 hours tonight just sitting there looking at this thing and can't figure it out. I'm baffled.

Hi guys I need you help. I just bought a 1958 RCA stereo console, it was known as the stereo twins.
I bought a new styles for it but I can't for the life of me figure out how to change the stylus? It is one of those airplain type cartridges where the wings are part of the cartridge not the stylus, you push down on a metal tab in from of the tonearm to slide from left to right, one sides lp the other 78. Someone said you push down on the tape and pull forward on the wing part and it slides out then the styluses clip in? Mines either froze or that's not the way because it's not coming forward. I don't want to break anything, any help I'd be greatful. If you need pics I can take some. I'm sure someone has this changer in the forum, the Todd arm has a gold color triangle that says stereo you use to lift the arm with

That was a heck of a score

This sets from 1960

I have two continentals in my collection, ones from 57 the other 59. I play them daily, get sounding sets.
But then again all magnavox's are magnificent!

I just bought a nice stereo tape cartridge player from 1963. It's the model 3yd11 I think?  The one that used them huge cassettes. It's the total sound stereo one. The manual that originally came with it was orange color I think. If someone has a copy they can scan of it, I would be so greatful and I'm sure others to if they have this set

Hi guys, I pulled the changer and the trip lever wasn't working right, she's working perfect now :)
When I pulled and cleaned and oiled It the first time I missed that part
Thanks for everyone's help

Great score, I love my berkshire. Very nice set

Thanks Mark, I'll look at that tonight. Other than that the sets fine
I will pull the changer tonight. I need to restring the radio to in it, is that easy to do?

Hi guys I recently bought a 58 berkshire
Unit is in mint condition, I recapped it, dial string broke :( or was already
The changer works record drops but arm won't come over to set down on record edge
I can't figure it out?
This set also came with the rare small stereo 1 tube amp to
Has very nice sound
Also the radio stations tune in good but after a big it drifts, not bad but I have good ears and notice it
So any ideas? From fellow Maggie lovers?
I'd like to fix the dial string to, not sure if I can reuse the original or new? I been collecting and restoring these sets 25 years
I never had a dial string break

I have a few Magnavox stereo demonstration records including the ones pictured here, there is one called Magnavox let us entertain you. That's good, I also have a hand full or rca, I have a few zenith ones, voice of music on a 10" Montgomery wards airline series, I also have all three of the motorola three channel 10" stereo demonstration records. They are out there but mostly in ebay, just have to search stereo demonstration record, zenith, or Magnavox ect..

Oh ok
No wonder it didn't work
All I got was distortion. I'll have to pull the radio chassis to do it then
Can I leave the original hooked up to for authenticity?
