Zenith Stereo (Any info?)

Post by ghosstt » Thu Feb 17, 2011 12:19 pm

Over at a local pawn/overlypriced shop, I found something interesting:

They want $30 for it. No needle. Stereo works in it. Has tape in/out on the back, and external speaker outputs. The only other one I could find was on ebay for $300 :roll: No model # or make, but the way I'm seeing Zenith did things, was a lot of "custom order stuff"? Where they would use similar parts in different cases?

Holy cow! I used to have one of those! It's a pretty nice unit really. I remember right, that beast has tubes in it :)

Tho, you might have to replace the speakers..as I blew the speakers out shortly after receiving the one I had lol.

tubes you say? :P I hope so. Think it'll be tough to find a needle for it? I'm not sure the internal speakers are much of an issue, considering the wide number of sets of speakers I've got. :roll: So you think its worth the $30?

People horde the crap out of things like that. I had a friend who owned an old Catoline (I don't remember the spelling of it, it's the name of an old kind of plastic) Radio, which he aranged an FM Transmitter, added 1/4 inch jack, Plus a KaossPadto top it off...

Scratching or sampling the sound of space and time.
