I wish I was closer.  I believe that is the model that evolved into the Symphony series.  That is the first Stereorama I remember seeing.  I'd say it is fairly rare.  I hope somebody gets it who will appreciate it and not gut it for the amp.

I like the book-matched veneer on the front panel.

The Stereorama shows up in the fall 1958 Magnavox catalog.

Here's an upsidedown picture of mine, note the different legs/base.

Your base is better looking.

Apologies for the poor quality of the photos, but wanted to attach a few more for reference for folks down the road.

FM is mono, phono is either stereo or mono. Tape is stereo.

OK, what's the story of the photograph half-visible on top of your console?  I can see a turntable and probably somebody standing behind it.  There must be a story....
