A-82 RCA
« on: September 01, 2016, 01:04:35 PM »
This is the first one I have seen with both sized turntables and it was super cheap so I picked it up. It needs work but it's all there. The 33 record left on the platter was Micheal Jackson's Thriller.

RCA made several different consoles with two changers.  This one is a 1949 model since it has the RP-168 (RCA's first 45 changer.)  The RP-168 was only made for one year.

I believe the large record changer is a Milwaukee Erwood.

That was a pretty hot unit that year, with 100% record playing capability! RCA made no sense with model numbers, my 1948 RCA HiFi is a model 8V112.
Not much changed through most of the decade, prior to stereophonic records. I have a 1958 Zenith HF-1284, THAT USES THE SAME TUBES-LOL!!!!
