Re: Magnavox Regency Symphony, 1947?
Guys, I have some pertinent questions. Not sure of chassis number, but, I have a Maggy '46 model radio-phono.
It's in a nicely styled book case style case with two shelves.
Phono is in a drawer. 2 12" speakers are driven by pp 6L6 output tubes. Power trans. on same chassis. Has an eye tube, and, it's, I believe a 3 band radio. Two SW, one am.
Cabinet needs refinnishing, except for the lower shelf. It has a leatherette cover on cardboard covering the shelf, which has a mint finnish.
This set was dammaged by rats many years ago, but, radio sustained little dammage. Most dammage was to changer, which I have a correct replacement for.
I had re capped it long ago, but, still has original electrolytics.
It has a good eye tube in it.
At the time, the radio was playing well, as was rp.
I believe output tubes are now toast.
Is this set worth fixing?
I loved the sound at the time, but, it ia likwly it will now be expensive to finnish.
What do you guys say, and, if I should, can someone find me a good pair of 6L6G tubes?
I feel badly about the thing, and, would kind of like to see it going again, if it won't cost me an arm, and, a leg.
What do you think of the quality of these sets?
"If it lights in the dark and leaves you with a warm glow it's tubes."
"Honey, did you warm the baby bottle on my 75 watt hi-fi again?"
"I left it somewhere, but, where?"
