Zenith Tube Record Player Console Find.

My latest find. According to the guy who had it for sale, "It sounds bad, like something is wrong with it."

The price was almost free, so I drove the 25 miles and picked it up.

Cabinet is in pretty good shape. A touch of static when turning the bass control. I put on a record and yes, it did sound pretty bad.

I figured out what was "wrong with it". I flipped the needle over. BAM! It was magic. Sounds great now. It's amazing that he never did that. There's not a thing wrong with it. One of the wires to one of the speakers was dangling, so I plugged it back in. BAM! It sounds even better than at first.

I don't know what this model is called. Maybe a "Cantata"?
