I agree Bill, I hope they last lol. There is no hum or anything, cans stay
nice and cool transformer the same. I played it for 3 hours one day and
they were all fine. I use it daily. But this would be one id have the music
caps put in if that day ever came to keep the same sound quality

We had this exact one in our home in the 50s and 60s. What is the model #
for this? I must try and find one for my own!!

Which year did Magnavox begin making their Stereo Units? Philco made their
Phonorama Cabinet Model around 1953 which was also High Fidelity Unit and
also had a great sound. I don't remember seeing the dial on the earlier
models to set for the type of record you may be playing, RIAA, 78 RPM ect.
I assume there was a transition period as so many developments were made
during these years as 1960 approached. I remember reading the last 45 RPM
record player only was made in 1957.

The very early Curtis Mathes Stereos called Mathes Hi Fi look a lot like
this model. :)

Coupling most always effect the sound quality if the Zenith has good clear
sound with a solid bass, I wouldn't worry about changing them out unless
something isn't sounding right. With bad coupling caps there is less
volume, distorted sound, poor bass etc. Some people just feel better with
all new caps, but that can diminish the sound quality if the same factory
quality caps aren't used, it often results in a harsh hard dry sound rather
than the warm tube sound it originally had.

Amazing videos, all of them. I am looking for my first console way up here
in Dryden Ontario . Thanks for sharing footage of these truly magestic
machines!

Beautiful set. Great restoration job. You have the same radio chassis (with
equalization settings) as I do on my '57 Provincial. I have the same
changer but with the newer style tonearm to accommodate a stereo cartridge.
You were lucky in getting a set from a smoke free home. I wasn't so lucky
on two of my consoles. Had to clean the outside of the cabinet and clean
all the tubes to get rid of the smell. Luckily my '57 Provincial was a one
owner and came from a smoke free home. Enjoy.

Maybe you can ask your repairman to keep the caps in place, jus to desolder
one side of them and then place the new ones there, so, if it don´t works,
all you have to do then is to take out the new caps and re-solder the
desoldered side of the old caps.
