    Found this site while researching a recent purchase of mine. A 1966 Magnavox Imperial console in great condition, even have the original receipt dated 6-2-66 for $695 + tax (approx $5200 in 2017), model # RP704. Everything works well, except for some dial lights that are out. Here she sits in my Man-Cave, a work in progress. IMAG1525[1].jpg imagejpeg_1[1].jpg

    Hello,

    And just how far south do Chicago's "South Suburbs" extend @ 2017? Urbana-Champagne? Peoria? Menard? Marion?

    I actually live approx 35 mi south of Chicago, but it seems the city keeps getting closer and closer....

  9. I'm thinking they top out in the zone around Crete, University Park, and Monee... :):) Some say Peotone/Beecher, but I consider those exurbs. Also: Welcome to AK, Goonior.

    Welcome to the AK Crew.

    Great sound and sight with yer console. There's a site dedicated for this type of audio/furniture from the music past. Sorry I can't recall the name but with a little leg work on your part you'll find it.

    Back in the 70's I would drive to Homewood from Mokena to visit Musicraft and Pacific Stereo to drool over the equipment I couldn't afford. Now I'm in Wrigleyville. Still a White Sox fan. Not "officially introduced" here yet.
