1961 Motorola Console Stereo fully restored. Playing an original 1961 demonstration record

Hi guys, I wanted to make a new video of my fully restored 1961 Motorola Stereophonic High Fidelity Console Stereo. I had the Amps redone in the unit and it sounds even more amazing than it did before.
I'm playing an original 1961 Motorola 3 channel demonstration record for you. These were given out to customers at a Motorola dealer who just purchased a new 3 channel stereo. I ended up finding 2 different ones in like new condition. I hope you enjoy!

Also Bill to with the piano rolls lol, yes that's just half, I have close
to 2400 in my collection. I'm now on the hunt for a nice zenith console as
well from the same era, keeping my eyes open :)

Great sounding console! from 1958-1963 consoles sounded just fantastic, but
once transistors replaced vacuum tubes the sound quality sounded a little
on the tinny sound.

Author Jason Madore (2 years)
Because those were really the only ones available at the time that could be
used for mass production. In 1959, any system using more than a two-pole
motor would have likely cost over $500 (in 1959 dollars as well). At that
price, there would have been no profit margin for Motorola to use four-pole
motors, for example, in their mass-produced (though still high-quality)
players when everything else about the changers were higher quality to
begin with than what was also on the market at the time.

Sweet! I always like the flashy gold Motorola turntables!

Author Turkeydoodlers (3 years)
@TwinMillMC Hi Twin, Its a pretty hard choice, they both sound very nice. I
like the style of the woodwork on the Fisher, But Id say i like them both
the Same. Im now on the hunt for a nice Zenith from this same period. 1955
to about 63

Author maynardcat (3 years)
There is no comparison in the way this sounds now, and how it did before.
The camera also seems to be doing a much bettter job recording this time
since you changed the settings. The Motorola has a good crisp high end, and
nice mid-range on the brass. It looks like a lot of piano rolls behind the
stereo. .

@sideshowtink Hi Tink, thank you, it was worth every penny i spent to get
it redone

Author kirk watstien (1 year)

console from him same exact tt as yours! has vibrasonic! if you should ever
want to sell any demo records let me know would be REALLY interested in the
fisher if you should ever come up with doubles lemme know!

Author sideshowtink (3 years)
Nice Motorola! Sounds amazing! Lovely!

@calemstevens33 Hi, yes if it was the one about 3 weeks ago that had these
2 in the lot then yes it was me sorry lol.. It was the only one on there
that had the 2 together, they are like new to. One thing I have learned
from eBay is of you want it, watch close and bid high. I looked tonight,
there is some on there now, but not together.

@Edisonfans19 Hi Paul, thanks for stopping by. Yes this is one of two I
have, I have another video showing the other demonstration record. Thing is
I'd like to let the whole thing play but it would be to long for YouTube.
Glad you enjoyed it

Author Turkeydoodlers (3 years)
@desoto1961 Hey Rich, yes this is what it now sounds like restored, huge
difference. Yes those are the 2 demonstraion records i was telling you
about. Check out the fisher video to, i listed a few of the new un opned
ones for you and the 2 rca stereo demonstration records i was telling you
about. Send me pics of the one you got Sat, cant wait to see it!

@maynardcat Bill hi! Yes I agree with you 100%. I didn't even know it would
come out that good hence why I said that in the beginning about the mic. It
was a software issue all along. I cant thank you enough either Bill for all
the help you have given to me about these, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Stick
around I'm listing the Fisher next, I'm sure it will sound just as good.

@CarGuyZM10 Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it, stick around there will be

Author desoto1961 (3 years)
Wow!! Its sounds great and looks so nice!!! What a treasure!! Its so cool
you have the demo records made just for it!! I love the on light in the
left speaker! I want one!!!

Author caleb stevens (3 years)
Great sound! I have a very similar Motorola 3 Channel console. Did you buy
the records on ebay? I was contemplating on buying a couple... taking my
time...thinking nobody would be looking for those very same records...
they're gone now. I'll keep looking! Thanks for the vid.
