I think the '87 models switched to a different style cabinet and used the single board 9-470 module. I had one from around '87-'88 and they were not as good as the older sets. I think they were, however, the last knob tuned Zenith's offered.

If it has the 9-181 module, I'd definitely keep it. I always thought that main board was one of Zenith's better efforts in the 80's.

A $5.00 Zenith?

Wasn't that the manufacturer's cost of a Z-TAC ST-1083 or ST-1085 "Descrambler"?

Ahhhh... Zenith... I remember them well. Where the name went on before the parts went in!

No, that's the way it is today. The slogan was "The quality goes in before the name goes on".

I bought three of those sets, in a four year span. Two 13's and one 19".
The first two were made in Springfield, Mo. and the other in Mexico. All three of them used the 9-181 main board. All three had the knob tuners, as all of them were used with a cable convertor.
It was a long run for the same basic design.

I think I saw a label inside this one that said Springfield.
