This Magnavox Model 1RP201 is a ten tube AM-FM-FM Stereo with a 4 Speed Automatic Record Changer. It was made in 1965. The output tubes are a pair of 6BQ5's made in Great Britian. All the tubes have a date code of 1965 except the AM converter with 337 448. All the tubes tested very good on a Hickok tube tester except for the 6C9. Of all the NOS tubes I have I did not have a 6C9 and had to order one. There's no dial lamps on this console. I might figure a way to install a couple later on. I checked a lot of the parts on this one. Replaced a few I might have left in it if it was a solid state one. But looking to future use I don't want to pull the chassis again any time soon. The original record changer cartridge EV 258 did not have a needle and the cartridge yoke was broken. I replaced it with a new Astatic 461 cartridge with needle. After some new parts with 260 volts on the plates of the 6BQ5 tubes I figure a distortion free 10 watts
Console is in garage and gets played quite a bit. Plan on keeping for now. The Cartridge and the Capacitor was most of the cost. Looks like cartridges are going up.
The original record changer that came with this model is a 603-30-00 as shown in pictures. I needed one of these to replace one in another console I had. This Model RP201 now has a R-600 Custom Changer from 1961. It's very compatible.
The chassis number is R311-11-00. As is with Magnavox specific chassis documentation is sometimes hard to come by. I used SAMS 779-2A and it was good enough to do the job. Also note, at least for chassis listed in the SAMS, they were used in TV's covered by SAMS 779-2, U44 series.
