Very cool. I like their comment about remote control, "no flashlights". Thank you for posting the brochure.

reeferman,

Here are the retail prices for the Hoffman color sets in the catalog. The set designated "The General" in the price list is the same as the "Commander" in the catalog.

A friend had a bunch of old color sets. One was a Hoffman Colorcaster. It looked to be a RCA CTC5, only with a different tuner assembly.
Back in the day, RCA even sold chassis to Muntz. Same type chassis, different tuner. :scratch2:

Had one of those hifi's with the sound chamber thing. It did sound quite good.
