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!!

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

I've had no experience with the Zenith amplifiers, so I'm not sure what
they used. There are some articles about coupling caps in musical
amplifiers on the net. I've read that very expensive component amps like
McIntosh & others used very high quality caps that don't always need
changing out. Quality music caps can cost 10.00 to 35.00 each where a
common capacitor is from 79 cents to 2.98, That could get pretty costly in
a console amp, but justified in amps that sell for thousands.

I have a late '57/early '58 Magnavox Provincial that had a factory
conversion to stereo. They added a one-tube preamp with
loudness/bass/treble for the 2nd channel and an EV26 stereo cartridge with
additional wiring for the 2nd channel. I also lucked out and have and 2nd
channel companion speaker. Also had a '54 Philco Phonorama which I sold so
I could make room for the Magnavox. Magnavox started their stereo lineup in
'58 and provided conversion kits for their older models.

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.
