There is an RCA round color set near chicago. I CANNOT go for it right now--my van is in the shop. But someone ought to look into it. Not an unreasonable price either...

It's probably a 1962 model CTC11, using a 21FBP22 CRT. :thmbsp:

Looks similar to my CTC-11C.

Nice performing sets. I often have mine playing in the shop while I work on other things.

Yep. RCA Field Service Guide lists it as the "Abington"

I didn't realize you got three of these now.I have owned three CTC-11s, but not all at the same time. I sold the second one (with black metal cabinet) to a fellow collector a few years ago. Then I ran across this one at a can't-resist price of $30. The cabinet style isn't much to my taste -- I grew up in a house full of that stuff -- but it performs so well, with fairly minimal restoration, that I'll probably keep it forever.

It looks like it has HiFi Audio? As it looks like it has a woofer and a tweeter hiding behind the speaker grille area... :scratch2: :thmbsp: Possibly has the 6BQ5 audio output?
