Hello everyone! I am new to the world of antique radios. I am hoping the friendly members here can help.

We inherited a Vintage Zenith Stereophonic High Fidelity Phonograph MK2600, with the passing of my grandmother. While we would love to keep it, we have no room to store it and will have to sell it. Do you have any idea what a good asking price would be? And where I should list it (ebay? local facebook yard sale? etc). Finally, is there anything else you can tell me about this model that I should know? Thank you so much!

Selling price depends on variables of any item you are selling.
Condition/wear, functionality, demand in your area.
Place ads anywhere you want, more exposure the better.
Check ads for other consoles for selling price ranges.
Find a local antique radio club and see if any member is
interested in your item.

Price will also depend on the below note.

NOTE: a record player this old will need minimum electronic
restoration, and record changer cleaning to function
safely electrically and without mechanical problems.
These are costs to the buyer, if you have not had the
console serviced properly.

Product info:
Your Zenith MK2600 is circa 1963. Product data found in
Sams Photofact database reference # 650-10.

It was not a high-end product, but middle price range.
From what I can tell from the schematic and speakers,
the sound would be pretty good when everything was
refurbished.
It does have separate power and stereo output transformers.

Agree, it is nice to see you back!

Tubes4life, why does this thread make you angry? The OP is asking for information on his instrument and a member was nice enough to provide him with detailed information. What's not to like?

This site is for those that are dedicated to collecting and restoring vintage equipment----it is NOT an appraisal site. Most people that ask the "what's it worth?" questions have no interest in the hobby.
