Curtis Mathes Royal Dane tube console stereo
« on: January 05, 2019, 10:51:25 PM »
Let me put this out there, I am definitely not a good steward of vintage audio.  Apparently this was their TOTL console in 1961.  I was/am going to modernized the cabinet because I like its style.  Probably also destroy a pair of classic Altec, Bozak, Klipsch or JBL speakers to install into the console.  Already have my pick of Fisher or Magnavox tube amps taken from other consoles.  You see the pattern here, just to make a "garage stereo".  So, this piece might be a unicorn or crown jewel in someone's collection.  I am going to give it a chance to live.  I already pulled the electronics and turntable, speakers are still in it.  I kept everything and it can be put back together.  All the wood is solid, but will need refinishing.

If someone wants this, for themselves, not to flip.  $100

The one I have is in pictures 2-4 down with the tambour doors and drawer turntable
