    Great item. Here's a little history. It says they stopped making hi fi gear in 1961.

    Can you still find a stylus for the turntable?

    "Stromberg-Carlson purchased a license to produce Neutrodyne radio receivers in 1923 and began production shortly thereafter; a license to the RCA patent pool was obtained in 1927. Stromberg-Carlson's strategy was to make high end receivers, and the company quickly developed a reputation for high quality engineering in its radios. The company acquired Rochester radio station WHAM (still active today on 1180 kHz) in 1927. Televisions and FM radios were added in 1939.Radio and TV production ended in 1956, shortly after the merger with General Dynamics. Radio-phonographs and hi-fi components continued to be produced until 1961. The company's highly successful telephone-related businesses were partially sold off to Comdial (1982), with the remainder of the company merging with Siemens AG in the 1991.Sources:1. Alan Douglas, "Radio Manufacturers of the 1920s," Vol. 3, The Vestal Press Ltd., Vestal, NY (1991).2. Comdial company history at http://www.certified-cti.com.";

    Believe it or not, I have the exact same console. It also plays like the day it was born. If I'm not mistaken it's a 1956 model.

    I have a Stromberg Carlson radio phonograph in a modern cabinet, with what I believe is "Rangoon Bamboo" grillwork on it. Cost me $20 some twenty years ago! They quit making home stereo equipment way too soon!

    I have a Stromberg Carlson cherry wood cabinet with AM FM Shortwave radio and 78" record player. It is approx. 4 ft. long.It has been in the family for about 50 years. I would like to know what it would be worth and how to go about to sell it. It is in great condition but the buttons stick
