This console belonged to my grandfather. He purchased it in the early 60's from an unknown source in North Jersey. I'm not sure if he had it custom built or bought from a furniture store. It's a teak veneer over very high quality furniture grade hardwood ply. Original electronics were a Bogen 6V6 powered receiver, Garrard Labs Type A (still present for now) and Oaktron alnico full range speakers (also still present). I've had it since about 2000 and have been mainly using it as decor furniture in my dining room but at long last I've brought it back into service. Yesterday I installed my 400 to replace the long gone Bogen. The aperture for the receiver had to be enlarged quite a bit to accommodate the Fisher but I think it looks pretty at home. The Oaktrons are running full range with no crossover and rated at max music power of 15 watts, so I'm not going over about 50% of volume pot rotation nor do I need to. This thing sounds great! The bass slam is outstanding and while treble could be better, it's not terrible either. Pretty good drivers but I imagine I'll be looking for something with a little more power handling at some point, but no rush. There's a bar that slides out on rails and the turntable does as well. I don't really have interest in restoring the Garrard as I also own a similar changer of that model and I don't particularly like it. I'm thinking an AR XA or similar might fit there but suspended sup platter tables don't like speaker vibration so perhaps suggestions? Anyway I'm thrilled to have the old girl singing again!
