Yes it sounds as good as it looks Bill!  Mine is the single amplifier. No horns in mine. I still need to rebuild the Changer and RtoR but I'm sure that with the instructions and documentation provided by Gary that they will not be a problem.

I have 2 little girls, ages 2 & 3... no fitbit required!

Yes Bill, it is similar to mine but a year or 2 earlier, could even be a 57 (mine is a very late 61 model 1001-2 ) and there are differences.

The 1000 had 3 separate lids to access the components, the 1001 only a single large lid.

The 1000 had Jensen horn tweeters that exit through some side grill-work that is absent on the 1001 which uses a more conventional driver for the highs.

The 1000 used a pair of monoblock amplifiers for right/left channels while the 1001 has a more conventional amp.

My 1001 is Stereo, and has an MPX unit installed. (I'm fairly sure that all 1001's were equipped with the MPX)

And of course mine being newer has a newer model changer in it.

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...

A buddy of mine that works in the biz has one of the "camera cars" from Thelma and Louise. Kind of interesting with all the different brackets and mounts welded all over it. Of particular interest is the fact that this vehicle started out as a hard top and the roof was removed to mimic the look of the convertible hero car!

Scan should be at least 300dpi for best results.

You can email it to me using the address there in my sig, and I'll get it uploaded.

You have a model 8091 and require SAMS folder 958-8 I don't think that this is one that I own but if I do you would find it in the downloads section of this site.

For future reference Sears model numbers use . instead of - for separators, sometimes it makes a difference when searching.

Doesn't look like CM to me. TT looks like a crescent so perhaps it's a Silvertone.

Front firing horns suggest a higher end unit.  Tube box laying inside the tuner compartment suggest's that it's at least partially Tube based electronics.

That's a lot of guessing from me of course.

How long have you been looking? Not very long I suspect.  In the last 4 years I have seen literally dozens of these sets in all styles of cabinetry across the country. 

Have patience, set up and save some searches on CL with email alerts whenever anything new pops up.  Check eBay at least once a week. 

Have some patience and be diligent in your search and I'm sure you will find what you are after.

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!
