    Your mid century room is amazing.
    Probably one of the most beautiful set ups I have seen in years.
    You are a God.

    Thank you, Dr Fine. Please enjoy a meal for me at Da Caneca's over there in the Ironbound.

    Funky54 Coat Hangers do not sound good

    No just put your hand over one ear when you listen.

    I'll try it, i won't be home for a few more months though, my room is very small though so don't know what the effects would be as opposed to both sides, I love mono.

    Is that a Fisher 500 receiver below the turntable? I have an 80 but it needs to be restored.

    Does that little TV work?

    Which 80? One of the mono blocks or the 80-C preamp?

    Yes; good eye--this is the TA-500 receiver with EL37 output tubes from 1957. I've owned many 400/500/800 receivers over the years and even the earlier stereo TA-600 & TA-800 models, but this mono 500 receiver is the one I've held onto.

    If I can ever figure out how copy and paste a post a photo I'll show you, haha! It's a mono tuner with preamp. I also have a Fisher 400 receiver, but I don't use it as it needs to be recapped but it sounds great.

    Back in the day the hardware was single channel with a single speaker. However, the transition from mono LP's to stereo was relatively fast.
