There has been a Astro Sonic console singing it's sireen song to me for a week now, and I decided to get it, as I've wanted to try a solid state console. The unit worked as it was, though it had noisy controls. The seller put the turntable through it's paces and it performed well. I got it home, cleaned out the controls and put a 3.5 mm plug cord on the aux in connectors. It plays nicely and looks in nice condition as well.

A question: This unit is a 1-ST648 from the first half of 1964. I see no usable chassis numbers on the receiver. How does one refer to a Photofact?

Which numbers do you have that you figure are unusable ones?

Cleaned the unit up, ordered new stylus for the turntable and got the schematics. Got the stylus last Friday and tried some records on it. The turntable works quite well. Now to get some replacement electrolytic capacitors for it.
