I think it is so sad to see all the great American electronic companies gone.  Back in it's hay day America produced some awesome HIFI's and Stereo's.  Some of it was cheap, some of it was excellent, but the interesting thing, it lasted.  Whether cheap or expensive it can still be repaired today, listened to, and enjoyed.  Not so much for the stuff built today.

Happy Easter everyone.  We have a beautiful sunny and warming up day here in West Michigan. Is everyone doing an Easter Egg hunt?  :) :)

Congrats Trevor!   You will have it up and running in no time.  The controls are interesting, I have never seen a Magnavox with a setup like that before.  In the photos from the ad I noticed that someone had attached that board on the back and I wondered what that was.  Now we know.  Thank you for sharing the photos, I look forward to watching your progress.

Roger, it sounds like you and I made the same decision getting rid of the Mc stuff.  I regret it, but there is nothing I can do about it now.  I also had a Pilot console at one time.  That to is now gone and I regret that as well.

Chat / Computer help for Greg.

I think as far as anyone knows it is Pat that still owns and controls the site.  Emails have been sent to Pat offering help, and of course the offers have been posted here on the forum.  I do not know if it is just up and running with no one watching, or if Pat actually is watching.  Before the forum went down for the first time I would see Pat's name early in the morning when I would be on.  I have not seen his name since the forum came back this last time. 

And yes Chris, being able to easily see the icons would help.  And agreed Roger, being able to attach would be nice too.

Good, I'm glad you are getting it.  I just went to the 1959 brochure to take a look at the Berkley.  It should be a good performer.

The two speakers in my Avatar are Bozak 302A's.   They came with the center cabinet which held McIntosh components.  Here was a case where the wife got to pick the cabinet and the husband got to pick the components.  I acquired the set from a local family who got it from the original owner.  After the second party brought it home they decided it was to big and wanted to get rid of it.  I just happen to visit and they told me the story and wanted it gone.  We worked out a deal and it followed me home.  Unfortunately, this all happened before I started my retirement hobby and I never got around to doing anything with any of it.  When I decided to retire and move back to my home town I sold it.  I now regret that decision.

That's an interesting thought, one I did not think of.  Now with that thought in mind, I wonder if one can even register as a new member?  As far as I know, since the forum has been back up, no one new has joined?  At least there have been no new "Introductions".

I just read Danny's post and thought of you Trevor.  Keep or flip, it should be yours.

One of the things on my bucket list is to hear a Fisher console someday.  Growing up one of my friends parents had a Fisher SS receiver.  It was hooked to a pair of so/so speakers so the sound was OK but nothing to write home about.  I think one of the brothers of my friend has the Fisher receiver but I do not know if it is being used or just sitting on a shelf in the basement.

Greg is still here, he just can't post.  He said when Pat made him a moderator a while back his format changed (as a moderator) on how he posts.  It's different than what we have for posting and with our new Vintage his side is not working.  With Pat not responding to any posts or PM's, Greg is kind of left out of the loop so to speak.

He is quite the engineer, I wonder what he is going to be when he grows up?
