MAGNAVOX WEDGEWOOD
          MODEL 1SR377H AKA K277H
The best guess on the date of this Wedgewood is 1958. Features are two 12" bass
speakers plus the 1000 cycle exponential treble horn, two-channel 30-watt
divided-frequency amplifier (AMP 150), FM-AM radio tuner (Chassis 54-01-BA
SAMS 446-13) with sound equalizer controls, precision changer with Stereophonic
Diamond Pick-up. Another brochure indicated earlier units had the 25-watt dual
channel amplifier. "The Two-Channel amplifiers are utilized to achieve superior tonal
reproduction in medium priced Magnavox instruments. The Two-Channel Divided
Frequency amplifiers are employed
in the finer Magnavox instruments...and amplify bass and treble responses
separately in each of the two channels; thereby eliminating intermodulation
distortion." The Collaro Changer had label under the mat with Model H-400. Since it
has a "finger" the SAMS could be 285-6, 342-3, or 464-6. Holding out for more
references from Model Number, chassis numbers to SAMS which references the
SAMS hopefully for the changer.

A Companion Extension Speaker was available. It matched the Wedgewood in
furniture appearance and in "Stereophonic-high fidelity performance." It contained a
15" bass speaker, a 1000 cycle exponential treble horn.

This Magnavox Wedgewood came out of an old shed. Mice had set up housekeeping
living a magnificent life. The owner wanted it fixed. I explained what all I would
have to do and the cost. No problem. I fixed this old thing and it sounded great. I
did not get the cabinet finished as per owner. After it was done I contacted the
owner, yada, yada, yada. Short story is I got stuck. I didn't even get out of it
what I had put into parts.
