Maybe I can try this again. I know an older guy who has a 1972 Zenith dark Mediterranean home entertainment center he wants to get out of his garage (looks nice) and the price is right. It is in Knoxville, Tn. This would be a true 25" set. Now, who wants it??

If i was in TN I'd get that Zenith, I like Zenith products a bit too much for my own good.

I may edit that list of mine soon.

Location seems to be everyone's biggest problem. Most of the sets people have mentioned aren't that rare, or valuable, but the cost and trouble of shipping will usually far exceed the value of the set.

I've seen several RCA's with the round tuning eye before and will keep a look out for you.
I wish I had one. It's a stereo console record player on turned feet that has a foldout speaker on the left side. Has about a mile of woven rattan grill cloth with two gold horizontal bars in the center. Usually in a blonde finish I believe, but I'd take anything close.

Kamakiri,
It sounds very cool.
I've never seen an RCA with a swingout speaker like that!

I will try and find a vintage ad that shows one,about what year would you guess that model was made?

I would love a 19" RCA color "mini" console. I think they came out in 66 or 67. I think it's a CTC-19. That's the set I grew up with.
I have a few sets I'd like to get rid of, which I think I've seen on a few peoples want lists.
1) Sylvania Roundie --- New Flyback and a rebuilt Sylvania picture tube (black matrix)
2) 1972 or 73 Hitachi 14" Color. Solid State (charles?)
3) 1967 Maggie Console with the sliding doors. Remote control.
If anyone wants details on the sets I have, shoot me a PM. I'm in Omaha. Also hit me up if you have a 19" console.

My parents bought it after they were married in 1957, so I'd say 1957-58.

I had one of those for a while when I was a kid, but my mother eventually made me donate it. At that time it was the only tube set I was able to get a good picture out of. I wish I could have it back, along with a lot of other sets I had as a kid (like the CTC-22, CTC-36, and CTC-40 Lundberg). I can't have too many regrets though because at the time (early 90's) they were just old junk, and I had lots of other stuff cluttering up the house that I wanted to keep more.

Hmmmm.... I have a non-working Sony SL-HF900 that is surplus. Has owner's manual and a remote, but it's not the exact one for this machine...
