I have the above console unit, combo turntable and AM/FM radio, look like a piece of furniture (beautiful wooden case). Thus far I have found no information on the internet. Looking for a parts source.

Thank you.

What parts do you need...for the turntable or radio/amp? There is no one parts source for these vintage consoles. You have to know what part(s) you need, and then post here in the Sales Forum and look at eBay, or try to find a local donor unit on CL. I guess this might be the Sam's folder for yours. https://www.samswebsite.com/en/photofac ... /id/145126

As Tbird said, it really matters what parts you are needing. If it's things like capacitors, resistors and tubes, those things are universal. If it's for the changer, not so much. RCA had the irritating habit of using 5/8" cartridge mounting spacing, which can make cartridge replacement a bit tricky.

Nothing a hot glue gun can't fix... :lol:
Also..a lot of RCA consoles in the later 60's-70's used push in brass connectors for the cartridge leads...the connecting wires on these are super thin and are a bugger to work with if you convert to a standard end pin cartridge.
