If you want a stereo that has a changer that can hold 50 records here you go..  BTW it's not mine.
Located near Minneapolis.

Massive, and SOOOO '70's.  That thing would look right at home sitting on orange shag carpet in a 14X70.   ;)
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

With as much as that thing weighs, you don't think it could tip over?  I've heard almost 300 pounds.  Can you believe pulling something like that out of a basement?  My back hurts just thinking about that.

In 1971 I was considering buying one of these from Walach's Music City in Hollywood.  The 1971 price was around $700-$900 at the time.


Several drawbacks caused me to rethink the whole thing.  One of them is that it only held 50 LPs.  My collection was larger than that.  Other was I wouldn't have been able to play my 45s and 78s.  I would need a separate changer for that.  Other drawback was the salesman said a serviceman would need to come out and adjust the mechanism after each move.  That killed the deal and I had planned on eventually moving from an apartment to a house.


From what I've seen of the mechanism, it is one step removed from the Seeburg jukeboxes.  Cartridge was a special version of the Pickering 500 design.  Wasn't sure how gentle it would be on my LPs.

It's kind of cool, I wonder how much power it has, what speakers and what it sounds like?
