1966 Zenith console stereo
This is one of the early all solid state ones, with the transistor sockets. It has push-pull output and 8 speakers, but it's not the really high-end one with the separate chassis for the amp. I partially recapped it (basically I changed the electrolytics that were coupling caps and the speaker crossovers, but not the power supply filters). I also changed one transistor in the left channel that was bad (not the output). The stereo works great. I took apart and lubricated the changer. It will play a record ok, but if you actually try to use it as a changer it doesn't always start the record in the right place. Comes with the original owners manual. - $100 pick up in Madison WI SOLD

That same receiver chassis and micro 2g changer is in a 25MC36 color combination set I have. the amount of re-cap you did was more than adequate. I had a Y942, 1968 model very similar, and sold it working quite nicely.

That receiver is a 29NT20 chassis, only second tier from the TOTL "320 watt" separate amp. Many lower-priced models were sold but few are seen anymore.

Oddly, Zenith exaggerated power output beginning with the SS models. Magnavox was only slightly more truthful with their numbers.

My original plan was to have 3 console stereos: my 1961 Zenith in the basement, and 1963 3-channel Motorola in the living room - both of which are the TOTL models, and I was going to put this one in the garage. But I found out yesterday I can't put a console stereo up against the back wall of the garage and have enough room to fit my Grand Marquis in there and shut the door! But this '66 Zenith is a great sounding console, I used it as my main stereo most of the time I was in Lansing.

I'm also looking for a 19" Zenith color table set with the 4 tube hybrid chassis and the SC500 remote - if anyone wants to do a trade...
