Music / Live Organ Music today
« on: June 29, 2019, 12:57:01 AM »
I got to hear a beautiful pipe organ today at my nieces wedding.

We were at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament in NYC.

It was quite a sight to behold as well as hear!

No it's not a console (it is however as huge as a CG) but if you are a fan of all things vintage then you may have heard of the Aristocrat 5850 (or Town and Country).
Produced by O'Keefe and Merritt from 1951-54 it is estimated that between 700 - 900 of these "Estate" model stoves were built .

Created by taking one of there 40" 6 burner stoves and then adding either a Right or Left "Stack" to create a 57" wide MONSTER!

The stove has a chrome cooktop with 6 burners (with mini simmer burners in the center), 2 Ovens, 2 Broilers, 2 pot storage drawers, a Warming Oven and a "Grillevator" Broiler with an elevator that has 5 settings that raises the broiler in relation to the flame.   

My wife stumbled on this one for Sale on LetGo while looking at toy kitchens for our 2 little girls!!

When she showed it to me I just about fell on the floor as I have only ever seen one other for sale locally in the last 20+ years and it was beat to hell.

We made the drive out to Canyon Country (about an hour) yesterday morning to have a look at it and made a deal to purchase it on the spot!

I will need to arrange a mover as I will NOT be attempting to move this beast on my own.

This is only the second one of these that I have seen in the last 5 or 6 years and it's in MUCH nicer shape than the last one!

This is the Stereo portion of the Colorama Ensemble found in the 1961 catalog.

My adult children all live in the Seattle area so I may try to have one of them go and purchase it, and send it to me via Greyhound.

Vintage Magnavox Magnificent 2-ST2830S Tube e Stereo Radio/Phonograph - $100 (Edmonds)

vintage Magnavox Magnificent Model 2ST2830S tube radio phonograph, it looks like two speakers but one cabinet has 2 speakers and the phonograph, the other has 2 speakers, radio, 2 amplifiers, each cabinet is about 17" wide x 17 1/2" deep x 30 1/2" tall, it is dirty and dusty inside, no testing was done, I did not try to plug it in, it is being sold as is not working, contact Art at (206) 999-8659

Just found this on CL and thought it looked vaguely familiar but could't remember which catalog I had seen it in and then I found it on the back cover of the Fall 57 catalog.

It's not exactly what I'm looking for but it's the right era and style, and looks to be in very nice cosmetic condition.

I don't know squat about TV's so if anyone can enlighten me on this one I would appreciate it.

- $250

Magnavox Tube TV/Tuner/Record Player stereo audio Console
Item untested,
Up for sale is a charming old Magnavox Television unit that is great for a retro decoration or restoration project. I never got an exact year on the TV but my best guess would be between 1949 and 1957. This item is truly a gem and super hard to find in one piece anymore. This item is sold entirely AS IS, WHERE IS, ALL SALES FINAL. Buyer is responsible for pick up and transport, please also keep in mind that this TV Unit is VERY heavy and should be handled by experienced movers or people with moving experience of heavier furniture.
Please see the detailed photos for more on condition. Guaranteed to be as described.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and I always picture the actual item(s) for sale, so please look carefully at the accompanying photo(s).
Sold as AS IS no return, no refund.
What you see in the photos is what you get.

Chat / New Magnavox Catalog Uploaded
« on: February 22, 2018, 04:58:25 PM »

I just finished uploading the first of the 4 70's Magnavox catalogs that I recently acquired.


Contents include; Stereo Armoires, Consoles, Credenzas, Drum Tables, The Stereorama Collection, Component Stereo Systems, Stereo Phonographs, High-Performance DIGITAL Components, Modular Stereo Components, Stereo Speakers, Component Record Players, 8-Track, Cassette, 4-Channel Cartridge and Reel -to- Reel Components, Headphones and Microphones, Portable Radio/Tape and Phonographs, AM & AM/FM Portable Radios, FM/AM Digital Clock Radios!

This is a 300 dpi scan suitable for printing, the file is 39mb so I put it in my Google Drive.


This is a RARE and beautiful Top Of The Line model 1000 from Voice Of Music.  I can count on one hand the number of these that I have seen since I started collecting consoles... far less common than a Concert Grand.

Minor veneer damage on front of one lid and appears to be missing it's metal legs.. Well worth pursuing IMO!

Antique Vintage Radio, Record Player (Voice of Music VM-100) - $250 (Portland)

I have a circa 1959-1961ish Voice of Music VM-100 antique radio, record player and reel-to-reel unit. This is a 3 piece unit that is built into a large wooden cabinet. Its been in our family ever since it was bought but we were clearing out space and no one wanted it any longer. I adopted it about 3 years ago intending to get it working but haven't been able to get around to it. To be clear, it worked when I got it, but it probably needs new capacitors and a little TLC.
I wrote to the VM hobby group and have copies of all the wiring diagrams as well as instructions on how to refurb the record player. The reel-to-reel also comes w/ a microphone. Original manual is with the piece.
Its in great shape, just one edge of the wood face was damaged on transport- I think it could be repaired with matched wood finishing.
Very motivated to get it out...

Over the weekend I won an auction for some old paper goods.

"The two price guide's have 24 & 36 page's ( no date ).....Two Magnavox products guide have 40 & 60 page's ( dated 1972 )"

These look to be in great shape and I will get them scanned and added in to the downloads section as soon as I can.
In the mean time here are the pictures from the auction to wet your whistle!

Needs a refinish but otherwise looks solid.

Antique General Electric 1940's Radio And Phonograph Player Console - $90

Antique General Electric 1940's Radio And Phonograph Player Console
Asking: $90.00
Components: Not tested
Cabinet Condition: good

I saw it a couple of days after it was listed but took a couple days to reply to the seller and ask for more information about it, by then, abut 10 days after posting, it was sold.

Vintage Fisher Stereo - $400 (Nipomo)

Vintage Fisher stereo with AM/FM radio and Dual turntable. Two Fisher speakers. All from the 1960's, custom made cabinet was made while stationed in Okinawa. Works but a little fuzzy, may need rewiring. Top of stereo cabinet needs to be refinished, has some stains on it. All original manuals intact.

I asked a bunch of questions about it, and the original owner, and the reply I got back was that the original owner was the sellers father, who was an Air Force Chaplain and had the console built while stationed in Okinawa. He later went MIA during the Vietnam war.
Unfortunately she didn't include any more details about what components were actually in the console that was obviously built to resemble the XP-10 speakers.

Sightings / CL: Email Alert "Magnavox Concert Grand"
« on: October 26, 2017, 05:08:37 PM »
I have had an Alert set up on CL for the last several years for the exact phrase "Magnavox Concert Grand" and just now saw one pop up while sitting here at the computer so I quickly jumped on to see if it was something that has been posted before, or perhaps something new and this is what I found.

Brought it home on my hand truck.

Nice tuner with FM built in, INTACT grill cloth, and finish is decent.

Of course the changer is wrong but at least it works.

If this was within driving range of me I would be on my way to get it instead of posting it here!  Anybody close??

Nice Fisher C800/810 console with the matching Stereo Companion Speaker that has it's own Amplifier.

Looks to be in pretty nice shape.

While the Consoles show up fairly regularly the matching 560 Speakers seem to be fairly rare.

Miscellaneous house furnishings - FREE. TVs (TUBE TYPE), Hi-Fi console, mattress and frame, night stand, lamp, writing desk
