1961 HiFi Console: Part 1

A vintage furniture restoration project leads to a world of vintage electronics and audiophilia.

In 1961, one guy in the Bay Area of California spent a small fortune on his custom HiFi system.

In 2022, I paid $750 for the same system. I bought it as a piece of furniture for our home and received an education in vintage audio in the bargain. Now I’m taking responsibility restoring this piece of history and bringing it back to life.
