Hello everyone, new member Mike in Chicago here With the ebony McCobb 872 that seemed to have slipped away. We live
in a home with a few pieces of Paul McCobb furniture and dreamed of the day we could find a McCobb HiFi. Honestly I
had come to think it might never happen, or take many many years. Then out of the blue Dennis of this same forum, put us onto
this ebony beauty from California. I am led to believe this is the same one mentioned earlier by Harbourmaster, connected to Walt Disney? Apparently it popped up again online somewhere else for appreciably more than the original $400 asking price on Craigslist. We jumped at the chance and the rest is history. I came across this site when doing research and connected the dot's that ours might be the same one mentioned here. Dennis has the separate speaker to pair with his console. Cant attest to it's functionality, waiting for an experienced tech to look it over first.
One thing that is perhaps news is that it appears the original turntable was replaced with a Dual 1264.

I'll post some pics as well.

Hello and thanks for the add. I'm new to this this fantastic Console HiFi scene, but am loving it!
Just recently got into lp's when we purchased a mid century home, a console seemed like the next logical step.
The console we purchased seems to have quite a story behind it. I'll post a pic here and continue the story in the appropriate
sub forum. Again thanks for the add and looking forward to being here.
