Sorry, I'm not sure what else to call them. But I remember when I was a kid, I knew a lot of people who had these mammoth consoles in their living rooms that housed a turntable, an 8 track player and speakers in a big wooden cabinet. You sometimes see them in movies from the 60s and 70s. Sometimes, I think it'd be kind of cool to have one again, just for a conversation piece. So what was the story on these things? How did they sound? Does anybody still use them??!!
