Re: Restoration of 1961 Imperial Magnavox Stereo Console

One thing Magnavox should have done is to cut out a square hole large enough behind the tuner connectors so a tape deck could be connected without having to remove the back cover.  I may have to borrow a jig saw and cut a hole myself.

I have been reading through this thread as this is the same exact console I just got.  Of course mine has been sitting dormant for about 30 years.  The person that owned this originally did cut a small square hole in the back (about 4"x 4") for that specific reason- in fact, they had a Panasonic 8 Track player connected.

While I haven't even gotten started on even cleaning up my Imperial, I'll be sure to start a new thread when I do.
An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind.
