I have been wanting to restore one of these old tube amp console stereos for a long time and last week on Craigs List we found a family that was moving and had 3 dressers a vanity and this console stereo for sale as a group purchase, anyways we bought all the pieces and sold the dressers but I'm keeping the stereo. My plans are to tear it back down to a wood shell and restore it in a contemporary style this cabinet is a well made cabinet made of maple. Man this thing was dirty inside and the particle board interior was coming up as I vacuumed so decided to paint the inside so that when I vacuumed again it would not remove more board and only dust. This stereo sounded great before I started restoring it, but it did need a new needle and it was easy to find a new replacement on the internet also the knobs for volume and balance made a terrible static sound when turned but that was also an easy fix , the dial under the knob's needed cleaning with electric contact cleaner. I will post a video with sound when finished.
