RCA's Record Player Lineup for 1958

Post by Guest on Tue Aug 18, 2009 4:19 pm

This color brochure came with my newly acquired RCA Victor SHF-6 (Mark VI) New Orthophonic record player. It shows all of RCA's models for 1958.

Thanks for the neat pictures. I wish I had a couple of those machines.

I have three of them, the Mark VI, Mark VIII 45 player, and Mark IX consolette. There's a guy on ARF who has the Mark II in the modern cabinet that is simply awesome:

I just love those color ads.
I have one 50's color ad by RCA Victor for a cartridge style Proffessional series fully High fidelity wire recorder.
Bass and, treble controls, also.
I believe the frequency response was supposed to be 30hz-18,000 hz, which would have been amazingly good.
They also bragged no more messy wire spools with wire that tangled, and, broke.
It was a cartridge that you plugged in like a cassette.
At around 1960 they also came out with litterally the first cassette recorder.
Cassette was quite large, and, used standard quarter inch tape. They sold them in both tube models, and, Solid state.
I have one really neat RCA Victor transistor radio in a "Break porrof" plastic case. AM only. Works on two D cells.
The sound is decent, and, the batteries last nearly forever.
It's a '60 model, according to my repair information...
The radio actually plays amazingly well.
