1962 Normandy
« on: August 31, 2018, 04:06:00 PM »
I have one, a 1ST659 with the 93-series amp, horns and 12"woofs. This is noted as a sweet-sounding console yet mine is recapped but still apart as there is lot of connections including FM multiplex adaptor. The tuner-preamps only looked like this for a year or two but they were all-tube.

These were called Series 100 tuners for 1962.  They were dandy performers for only having six tubes.  Equipped with AFC they tended not to drift like the earlier FM tuners would.
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

My 1960 57-series tuner and the 79-series are slightly different. Its too bad they made Maggies all SS right away in 1963-64. There could have been great improvements in tube equipment like Zenith made.
