Custom Stereo Cabinet
« on: January 31, 2019, 10:40:20 AM »
Picked this up yesterday. If I can remember correctly  there was a member on here that had some knowledge on these custom unit's . Everything seems to date around 1970.
It has a Pioneer SX-990,Perpetuum Ebner PE-220 TT and a Sony TC-355 RTR. No marking's on the cabinet but I think It came from overseas's because I think I can make out Okinawa on a  stamp on a inside wood panel. I'll get some better picture's this weekend.

A friend has a beautiful teak equipment cabinet made for him in Asia, maybe Taiwan?? when he was in the Navy.  It was "semi-custom," I think, meaning that they probably took a standard design for their shop and modified the innards to fit his equipment.  I was a small-shop deal, not a brand name.

There is a big Navy base here in Pensacola . I'm always finding items these guys brought back from where they were stationed back then. It is a nice cabinet and really well built
but takes up so much space. I pulled the component's and the cabinet went to the dump this morning

The Pioneer in particular was a good find, I hope it all works. No speakers?

The Pioneer was the best part of the whole deal but it was missing the wood case. I got one coming off Ebay . They had some Coral BX-85 ALCOVE SPEAKERS priced separately at $40. They had to be with that system because the Pioneer speaker plugs were still on the end of the speaker wire.

I hope they let you take the plugs off the Corals, seems like I was getting $15.00 per plug for Pioneer originals a couple years ago.

I don't know what's in the BX-85, but some Coral drivers go for good money. They could surely be parted out for more than the asking price. Hopefully whoever picks them up will try to appreciate them.

Why not donate the cabinet for free on CL? Unless it was too far gone, someone might be able to put it to use? Just my $.02, ymmv.
