Welcome, and post photos! 

I have a 1956 Provincial Serenade.  I[posted photos here:

And a link to short video is here:

And like a lot of us, I've got a bunch of old radios and vintage electronics.  Curb finds are a specialty.

Do you have the brochure for it? Or anything on it? It really is a beautiful piece. I  want to get it cap and tubes replaced.

Welcome aboard! 
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

I posted the schematic for the AMP-149 in mine to the downloads (Magnavox, amps) section.  The amp uses 4-6V6, 2-5Y3, and 1-6C4.  Someone else downloaded a Magnavox manual for the CR-730AA tuner/preamp, which matches mine pretty well.

There are a couple 1956 catalogs in the "catalogs and brochures" section.  You have to scroll past all the TV sets to get to our music-makers.
