That has some lovely veneers on it. Yes, I agree, it's one of the nicer ones.

Grunow's version of a Stratosphere? It's impressive.

I've always wondered why some cabinets have stunning veneer and others of the same model have just average veneer. That cabinet is amazing.

Very nice Grunow console, I would still take a 1541 15 tube teledial over that one yes sir.

Here's my unmolested 1181 - I guess if you wanted to pay more, you could get the next model up - same radio inside with chassis 11H, same cabinet, just fancier veneer. This is an incredibly sweet sounding radio, too.

Its a beautiful cabinet design!

Too bad Grunow didn't put a bi-amplified 3 speaker chassis like the 1541 or the 1241 in it.
Then it would be closer to Stratosphere in concept! :D
