I collect mid century modern furniture as well as stereo gear so this fits right in. It is an Ampex A423 console. I think it dates to the mid 50's. It makes some sound but not much. The goal will be to make it sound ok and be functional. The turntable is a Garrard RC33 which is a bummer but maybe I'll find something else to go in there like a 4HF. The console will likely go in a spare bedroom. I'm just glad it didn't go to the dump.
