jasonlava: OH ok. I can hear Jim Ed Brown in there now. Thanks!
retrochad: Yes they are...7025 is a low-noise version of the 12AX7 but they are
otherwise the same. Best of luck on the repairs!
john southwell: The Song is "They Call the Wind Maria" performed by Jim Ed, Maxine & Bonnie
Brown...it's spelled "Maria" on the label but pronounced like "Mariah". I
think it is from a musical play "Paint your Wagon"
Vinylrecordsneverdie: I notice the filter in mines is not original, but like you said I should
recap it. When I install the new ones, i'm going to reuse the ground
connections on the can. The changer is going to be a tough one, but however
I should suceed since I took apart 2 Micromatic changers and turned to be a
damusician: that same console is one ebay right now, but it has a mid to late 1960's vm
changer in it and newer e-caps.
vinylman86: oh yeah, thatz the same console on the reo speedwagon's "hi infidelity"
album cover, but a blondie model.
Vinylrecordsneverdie: You're right, the can is grounded to the power supply. Beside the filter
and the tubes, some of the other component was replaced in the past like
one of the audio transformers, a paper cap, and the power resistor. The
paper cap was replaced with a Sprague orange drop. Therefore, I'm not
changing that out since those rarely go bad.
retrochad: I would probably not connect the negative leads to the can of the old cap
but make those connections on a terminal strip along with the wiring which
connected to the old can (do not connect these terminals to the chassis
ground) That way the old filter cap can will not remain "hot" with a direct
power line connection.
kyletae: This is the best. I have a mangavox phonograph that is from the 1960's I
believe. I'm having troubles keeping it in actual motion. It keeps dying on
me and slowly spinning to a stop. Any suggestions?
vinylman86: wow, thatz the same exact console and thanx 4 da vids. i can't wait to get
mines restored. also i have and the same record changer in my 1967 and 1969
magnavox record players. does this changer has the 12" or 10" platter in it
and also do you have the 2nd cube speaker for it?
CassetteMaster: That one is working! The sound is very good and full.
Maxxarcade: That looks like the same Magnavox that is pictured on the album cover of
REO Speedwagon "High Infidelity". Cool. Looks like the original power
transformer burned up at some point and was replaced with a universal type.
puupydoger: Hi Retrochad I like some of your organ like keyboards and I have seen other
people on youtube have this same Magnavox record player. I'd like to know
where you got this record player thank you!
Vinylrecordsneverdie: According to tube layout on my set, the 2 audio amp tube are 7025. However,
the ones on the amp appears to have replaced with 12AX7s. Are those a
direct replacement for 7025s? Oh yeah, I'm current working on the amp.
Hopefully, I'll have the unit up and running soon.
retrochad: When I did this, I actually re-used an old electrolytic can cap which was
still working and insulated it with electrical tape (I think the can is
"hot")....however this was a long time ago and I would really recommend
using all new capacitors...sometimes you can spread the locations of the
caps out around the chassis to save room. Also the new ones are pretty
small...just dont allow the can to contact the chassis as the "hot" common
neutral from the power supply is isolated from the chassis.
Vinylrecordsneverdie: on here restored!
craigpc1974real: That changer does not look to be the original, and looks like its from the
solid state era.
retrochad: @craig1974 You are right...it is not original. The switch broke on the
original changer and SouthJK substituted in a later model changer.
retrochad: This Magnavox was one a friend and I were working on and he let me have it.
Vinylrecordsneverdie: When replacing the filter cap on this one, did you replace the can or
install 3 caps inside the chassis mounted on a terminal strips? I have
plans on restoring mines pretty soon and that chassis looks pretty small
too mount caps inside the chassis, but I'll figure out a way to get 'em in
there. Can caps are sure hard to find.
moscowandy: I wonder what was that song name playing? )) nice record player !
retrochad: This actually had a transformerless power supply originally but I got a
transformer from a Heathkit power supply and was able to re-wire it as a
120 volt isolation transformer.
vinylman86: retrochad, does the isolation transformer keeps the unit from buzzing like
if there's nothing hooked to the input jack?
ChromeBumpers: very cool, five *****'s as we've heard over and over, "they don't build 'em
like that anymore!"
Vinylrecordsneverdie: Mines is on the way
Patrick Saxon: Magnavox also made electronic organs too! I would fear of any electronic
instrument in a barn as small animals could get inside and damage the
circuits inside. I bought a late model Wurlitzter Total Tone deluxe spinet
and a small animal urinated on the circuit boards, corroding it as the
organ must had been in a barn.
jasonlava: Yeah. That's a late 60s changer with EV cartridge. What's the song playing?
"Mariah... Mariah..."? Sounds awesome.
