Olympia roundie in Boston

no affiliation

Can't remember if this was posted already, couldn't find a thread.

$190 might be a little steep, but I haven't seen this brand on here before. Probably an RCA clone? New Vista, I'd guess?

I think that is a '64 model with the RCA CTC-15. I hope others love the home entertainment centers as much as I do. I know they are hard to save because of the size but I just love em!

Would guess it is an "Olympic" brand RCA clone. Very nice contemporary design.

That Olympic is not an RCA clone. It's a genuine RCA CTC15 chassis. That's the last year RCA sold their completed chassis to other firms to resell. When the CTC16 chassis came out , they licensed the manufacture of the 15 design ot anyone who wanted to build it.

Olympic had a pretty poor reputation for quality; shouldn't be an issue here, though, at least not with the TV portion.

I've had bad luck with Olympic sets. Very nice cabinets, but cheap, cheap insides. They don't seem to be gutless wonders like Muntz, they just use a severely cramped chassis design with horrible quality caps, coils, and ladyfinger modules.

It's the only set I ever seen with one stage of IF.
