My First Console - Royal Dane 916 B V Walnut
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:59:42 PM »
I saw a Console "free for pick up" on Nextdoor.com here in Costa Mesa, CA.  It was a one-owner Curtis Mathes Royal Dane in visually very good condition.  It spent its entire life in Long Beach California, and was given to me by the owner's son.  I took it to a local shop and had the capacitors and several tubes changed, and now it sits in my office.  I'll buy a new cartridge and get the changer on the turntable working next.  I'm hooked!

Congratulations but that picture is a tease...  how does the console itself look?  CM made some beautiful units.

Yeah, the rule is, you can't boast about your great find without sharing photos with the rest of us--and maybe a report on how it sounds.

...this is like a console burlesque show...  I feel like playing "Bumps and Grinds" after reading this thread...

The suspense is killing me.
