Here's a decent looking GE from 1960.








And, here's an el cheapo Morse BOTL Japanese built tube radio/phonograph from the mid'to-late '60's. I didn't know that Morse marketed any tube stuff until I found this one.

Both amplifiers are identical, using a pair of 6AQ5s driving a pair of 6 inch full-range speakers. It sounds good!

Thats a beautiful Ge!
I have never seen that model in real life before,just on the SAMs cover.
Where did you find it?,did you get the external speaker at the same time?
It looks like it has a VM changer.

"AUdubon5425",
You've got some nice pieces!
I have always wanted one of those Glaser-Steers changers but have never had the opportunity to own one yet.
The tonearm and record arm are very futuristic looking and I like the fact the turntable stops during the record change cycle,it's a very unique changer.

I also like that 1962 RCA Victor stereo console,over on the ARF forums "repairtech" did a post on the amp and tuner assembly.

Does that Packard Bell console have the "radar" type tuner where vertical and horizontal indicators intersect one another? I believe they also used the same Garrard changer as your KLH

"radiotvnut",
I noticed your "Travler" record player has the Bsr UA8 "monarch" changer,the same changer Motorola used in it's Calypso series.
The speed control mechanisms are famous for jamming and the knobs are almost always snapped off.

I may have an extra knob around if you need it.

Here are a few of mine. The first 2 are Zenith portables from around 1965. One with a VM changer and one with a BSR. They have one tube amplifiers in them. The second one is a 1968 Phonola stereo suitcase. The third is a 1966 Zenith suitcase. It is solid state. The forth is a Truetone mono portable with 2 tube amp. the case is rough one this one. The last is a cheap Travler with one tube amp. The speaker fires out the bottom. It must sound great. I am not sure of the year of these. I would say late 50s.

My late 50's early 60's Magnavox Custom Stereo phonograph model 1SC245K. I bought this at an estate sale for $5.00 AS-IS last year with the original factory cart. When i bought it the amp worked good, but the changer had speed problems. I replaced the motor mounts, idler wheel, and cartridge with the help of an Imperial Micromatic parts donor changer. When playing "Why Baby Why" by Pat Boone it sounds incredible along with playing Everly Brothers hits.

My Edison Model "C"



The cabinet was made by my wife's Great-Grandfather at some point, ironically we wound up with the dresser/cabinet that the wood came from too. No telling what it started out as... I use it for my main system components.



I have about 150-200 cylinders for it, 2 "Morning Glory" horns, an empty bottle of the original Edison oil, a spare reproducer in box with the stylus missing, and a 1909 print of an Edison "American Classics" catalog. This old girl works well. We never came across the crane for the large horn, her Granparents actually used an old cast iron floor lamp frame and chain to support it.

Most of the wax cylinders were very moldy and in poor shape when we got them with this in 1986. We have several Bakelite cylinders that play well, though. I still need to inventory the cylinders and do an in depth assesment of their condition. The player used to sit on top of it and the bottom was used as a bar with the bottom drawer with a few of the many cylinders.

There were no such things as "bakelite" cylinders, the hard ones are celluloid.

OK, I guess I'll have to delve a bit more in depth into of all the reading I've done Thanks for the clarification...

A few more, for fun...

This was recently brought to me in a box with several other boxes that contained the rest of a Philco 51-T18xx TV, AM, Record Player console. It is a Philco M-22 Record Changer. I plan on a complete restoration.


This was given to me by a friend whose father had passed away, leaving a house packed with treasures. I was lucky enough to be allowed to pick through some of the leftover, not-so-valuable items. This is an HMV-101 from around 1926, and fully functional. It will remain completely original, as it is seen here:


My beloved Elac Miracord 10H, another pick from my friends' late father's hoard.
