Boy you certainly have better eyes than I do.  Panasonic made a console?  Never knew that.  I learned something today.

Thanks guys!

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

Thanks,
Bill

Sightings / RCA HIFI in Michigan

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

Good winter story Ed.  It can be like that here on Michigan's west coast as well.  Might I suggest you purchase a backup generator just in case.  :)

I looked at that when I was looking through the downloads but didn't think that was it.  Glad the mystery is solved.

Other than Theater Pipe Organ Concerts I have not attended a vocal/band concert in years, and for the same reason being discussed here.  It's to LOUD and my ears can't stand it.  For an old fart I have not lost any hi frequency pitch.  I have trouble with the human voice especially in crowds.  I don't do any pipe organ tuning anymore because I can't stand tuning the little pipes.  They are all very hi pitch and my ears start plugging up. I guess that must be a natural protection.  Years ago when I was in college I went with a roommate to hear Doc Severinsen (roommate was a fan) at the big auditorium at college which had very good acoustics.  Everything had microphones including the drummer.  Doc himself had a mic and had the mic stuck about half way up his horn.  I had fingers in both ears and had no trouble hearing every sound and even then it was too loud.  Do I turn my music up at home....YES I do....but it's not painful.

You too are brave and very smart.  I have a computer Geek buddy that is always bailing me out when I try something and screw it up.  I don't trust anyone but him to do anything to my computers.  I had someone say once, when I was trying to do something, oh that's a piece of cake, they did what I was trying to figure out but the Geek had to go in and fix the computer because they screwed something up.  I did master copying one CD to another. ;D  Continue you adventures in computerology, and good luck.

I might be all wet here but it kind of looks like a Magnavox Magnasonic.  (1956 & 1957 catalogs in the downloads section of the forum) If it is they had 2 12" woofers and 5" tweeters.  20 Watt amp.  It was entry level but still a Magnavox.  Do you have any other pictures, maybe under the lid?

Anyone else have thoughts?
