I recently got this RCA Victor cabinet. has 2 record players & am/fm radio.
I think it is 1950s but I have searched high and low and cannot find model year /make etc.
It needs new wiring and would like to look up info based on model on how to repair.
I've attached a photo. let me know if you need more photos.
Thanks for any help,
Elizabeth

p.s. i did find it on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/RCA-Victor-Wood ... 35b10f6b71 but the seller didnt include any helpful info.. maybe their pics are better than mine.

Wow, the cabinet is in outstanding condition. It's got to be a 1949 model because that RP-168 changer (the 45 changer) was only made for a year or so. I believe the larger changer was just for 78rpm records.

If the cabinet has a back cover, remove it and see if you can find the RCA label, which should be inside next to the amplifier, which will indicate the model number.

That sounds about right...

I love these units as well with the little 45 players and all but they are usually not hot sellers. I think it is because of the odd turntable set ups and that kinda gothic 1940's design. I think most buyers would rather have a nice Mid-Century Orthophonic that plays any kind of record easily (on one turntable) and has far better looks to it.

These 45 player consoles are neat though and I doubt I would pass up on a mint one in my area if the price was right...

That larger changer is an RP-178. It's the last 78 rpm only changer that RCA made. So you could play 78s and RCA's new 45s, but no LP 33s. David Sarnoff wasn't ready to release a product that could play their competitors (Columbia) product.

..and there is the main reason why these don't bring much money now-a-days.

Interesting follow up on this old thread....I bought this exact console from the original poster of this thread about 5 years ago and I still own it it now. Looks like she reached out on this forum to determine the selling price and then she listed it for sale on San Francisco CL for $30...which is what I paid. Both players work great after restoration and I was playing 78s and 45s just the other day on it :lol: Here's a picture of the console after restoration on Radio Museum https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/rca_rc618b_9w105.html
