This isn't the one wildcat was wanting is it? It doesn't look like it the best I remember. We got to find one for him.

Congrats, MR MEZ.   cheers 

You are an official Magnavox man.  That one looks like a '59 model, right?  Good job.

Willy, the one I am wanting is the Concert Grand model. I appreciate everybody keeping their eyes open.

Yes it's a 1959!  Very Happy 

I brought it up on the Variac and it works, not a bit of hum from the filter caps!

The volumes control needs to be cleaned and turntable needs some .

My experience with Magnavox stereos is that the paper caps in the amp should be changed. The resistors are also known to drift high. I have had to replace all the caps and all the resistors in mine. Then buy new JJ output tubes. These things rock, and you will quickly become addicted. The Collaro changers are not my favorite, and can be cantankerous to get working properly. They are neat to watch work and are fairly easy on records. They call them "Magnificent Magnavox" for a reason. Enjoy.  cheers

Did I start a thread on one of those? I think you mentioned that you were watching one.

When you get to be a certified Magnavox addict, you have my permission to blame me. I blame Neali. You will get somebody else hooked and they will blame you. Ain't it wonderful?  cheers

So, what's wrong with my three Magnificent Maganavoxes?
I have a radio Phono comb from '46, and, three way comb from 1947,
and, a Portable mono hi fi with a vm changer from 1961.
I'm jealous.............

Here is the thread we were looking for, MR MEZ. Not the same stereo, though.

I had forgotten to ask, now that you have the amp, do you already have a ge-tar or are you getting one next?

Wasn't it in moderators section, or, phonographs, where it actually belongs???
I lamented about my Magnificent Maggies, and, it killed the thread.

You guys will note that I have changed my avatar to a pic of my frau's daily driver, showing the Magnavox script and the sexy little pilot light.
