Hi and welcome to the forum. I don't have an answer for you, except to say that it should be a great sounding radio. Some members here might be familiar with it.

I found some more info here:

Hi , we don't know the condition of the item . Also It depends where your located ... so more info is needed for a meaningful appraisal . (remember these are free appraisals , and you will get what you pay for 8)

For example here in PA USA is a VM model 1000 console from 1957 that cost over 1000.00 new . It's in good condition, fully functional. It's been for Sale at 75.00 but the owner will take 50.00 .

You can also open it in Paint Shop, and re-size it to just under what the forum requirement is.

I like the set, I'd go $65.00 if no major problems, especially the turnable.

That's a nice, nice console when SC was making very high quality hifis. In great condition too.

In all honesty, all the value is in the electronics. But you don't want to gut a beauty like this.

SR-445 tuner and ASR-220 amplifier are worth more than the console is whole (unfortunately).

I recognize the amplifier, I found one once. It used four 7408 output tubes, similar to 6V6, but they ran at such a high plate voltage that they kept arcing over. I finally dismantled it for parts.

well it would be nice if it was worth more. But yes it will be getting moved out of the house for more room one way or the other.

Reminds me of this Monarch brand late 60 or early 70s Japanese made AM/FM Stereo receiver with integrated amp that uses Germanium transistors.
It had TO-3 shaped output transistors, but they were smaller. They were blown when I got it. Replaced them and replaced some burned resistors and it worked just fine for a while and blew them again. After the 3rd time blowing them, I found the 2N176 was similar in specs, but beefier than the 2SB474 or whatever that transistor was. I replaced them with 4 2N176s (a TO-3 size transistor) and it has been working perfectly for the past 20+ years!
Nice thing is the amp has amazing sound quality!
