Admiral AM/FM Stereo Multiplex Console
« on: September 09, 2011, 05:03:15 PM »
Hey Guys,

I picked this up today at the Habitat for Humanity store for $10. The kid there says it plays and sounds good. I bought it cause it has tubes inside. Here's some pictures before any clean up. I've not tried it yet.

When I got it home was pissed......no CD/iPod input.

Just tried it out at the wife's insistence.  It is fully functional.  Guess I'll refinish the lid and recap the amp and preamp.

Very nice looking!  Great score Scott! :D

I'll bet that table has a ceramic cart.   If so, you could probably hook your iPod up to it's connection with minimal if any buffering.   I wouldn't play any of my good rekkids on that anyway.   I'm sure the radio rocks though.

Hi everyone. I'm brand new to this site and do not live in PA.
I'm in Utah but lived in Buffalo as a child.
I'm trying to find this EXACT model of Admiral Multiplex for sale and wondering if anyone knows how to acquire one of these or has special websites that they may know of where I can get one and maybe have it shipped to me.
BTW I would have paid $100 for it, not $10 (I still might if anyone is willing to sell it...hint hint).
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks All
David
