Magnavox 1ST625 Stereo Console
« on: January 26, 2018, 02:39:30 PM »
A few weeks before Christmas I found my next console radio phonograph.  I have been working to get the filtering capacitors replaced with new ones and I had finished that and set about reinstalling the components.  It has subassemblies that are much like the later component devices one would purchase separately to make up a home stereo.  The unit came on and had no dramatic failures, it just would pass any audio to the speakers.   I traced it down to the receiver/ preamp and then to it's output amplifier tube.  The filament failed in the tube, the first time that has happened to me in 25 years.  Purchased another on Ebay.  It's something to see how much extra people spend on not much more than sophistry in the tubes' heritage.  I just can't afford to feed such fancies.
