Magnificent Magnavox / Magnavox Berkshire
« on: July 22, 2018, 07:08:02 PM »
Today was a good day, I finally have my Magnavox Berkshire model 270CG up and playing.  :)  At least the amp and tuner, I still need to service the changer and try and figure out what needle the Shure Brothers cartridge takes?  I did the usual: recap everything, clean all controls and sockets, replaced the cord but forgot to install an inline fuse.  ::)  When I first fired it up on the bench nothing worked.  :-\  Now what!  As I started looking I discovered the plug was not in the wall outlet tight.   :-[  That does make a difference.  Into the cabinet it went for its first test run.  This thing kicks butt.  Strong FM with no drift and this is in my basement.  I can't wait to hear records.  ;D

Magnificent Magnavox / Magnavox and cartridges.
« on: July 21, 2018, 03:53:37 PM »
Since it's raining today I'm doing inside projects, one of which is putting together an order for Gary at VM.  I need needles for a few things, my Magnavox Berkshire with it's Collaro changer being one of them.  I made two discoveries:  1. the head shell comes of the tone arm, 2. it has a Shure cartridge.  I did not know Magnavox used Shure, I thought they only made magnetic cartridges. Googling Shure and reading its history, they started out with crystal, moved to ceramic, then magnetic. I have not found the model number yet so I need to do a little more digging before I can order.  Today I learned something!

Does anyone have a Sam's or service info for a model 6-EY-3A RCA 45 record player?  This thing followed me home so I thought I would try and make it work.

Thanks,
Bill

Can anyone identify this?  I keep looking at it and can't figure out what it is.  Maybe foreign? 

Thanks,
Bill

This has been on Craig's List for about a month in Muskegon Michigan.  Way too much money but nice looking RCA.

Did anyone see this besides me?  It's in Phoenix!  At first I thought it was a Magnavox but no it's a home theater that I think maybe a Curtis Mathis???   Greg you could have two...one in AZ and one in MS.  I could help as when I arrive?  :)

Magnavox Berkshire listed on Craigslist in Midland Michigan.

 kx5qs-6444705022@sale.craigslist.org

Not sure if above link will work, I have never had any luck adding links.  If not go Michigan, Grand Rapids, and type in stereo.  Price $65.00.

Music / Christmas Anytime!
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:17:54 PM »
Today as I was doing chores around the house I noticed three albums sitting there that I had not listened to during Christmas.  So instead of just putting them back on the shelf Christmas returned to my house. All three were Theater Pipe Organ recordings, go figure!   One was Dick Leibert at Radio City, one was Dick Leibert at the Alabama Theater, and one was Leon Berry at the Hub Roller Rink.  Actually that one wasn't Christmas but I listened to it anyway.  All three were new recordings to me as I had picked them up this fall at a local antique shop who was just getting their Christmas stuff out which included the records.  Perfect timing!  All three records were in excellent shape which made listening even more enjoyable.  The records are now on the shelf, whether they stay there until next Christmas or not is yet to be determined.  Christmas in music can be anytime the heart desires.  :)
