IIRC that beast was the one that retailed at 10 kilobucks.
We wernt a Sony dealer at the time but I remember it in
the trade papers ( Dealerscope etc). Twas made with real top-o-line
teak, rosewood etc. You were buying furniture with a nice TV
thrown in. Very rare but nobody wants one. And you do not
want to move one !. Pissah set but I would pass on one even if
it had a mint CRT & free delivery !

You need to hit the gym...Join the Tube TV console collectors fitness program, and you too can lift a 208lb 34" Sony Superfinepitch HD CRT set yourself (Something I've done).

And quite rare with only 1000 built, and extremely heavy at over 500 pounds. It also has motorized doors.

I'd take one but I'd be keeping it on a wheeled platform.

I saw one in an antique furniture store, about 15 years ago. I think they wanted 400 bucks for it or something which seemed way too high for an old TV, no matter the cabinet. In that genre of giant show off TV I think the RCA 2000 is the only one I couldn't turn down.

I worked for RCA Smirnoff Labs back in the day, mid 1980's. The explanation I heard was that the 25 inch CRT "tall" configuration had nearly the same footprint as the 19 inch CRT wide configuration. That a consumer could have a bigger screen atop the same piece of furniture. IIRC, the CTC121 was RCA's first "tall" set. And it had a 2 line comb filter.

I don't remember if anyone there said RCA "invented" the "tall" set or not. It wouldn't be a real patentable invention anyway.
