    Our channel features lots of old technology, and this is our most viewed video by far…. Today, 7 years after upload and 1 year after monetization, it was blocked in all countries due to the Beatles record playing the background. So, to unblock the video, I had to mute the song. If you want to experience this video in its original form, play a scratchy version of "Please Please me" on a worn out turntable, over some 50 year old TV speakers, with a hum in the background – record it on a camcorder microphone. Starting playing at 0:48, then slow it down at about 1:21… 🙂

    An expert tech can get that system back to life. A matter of finding the right parts.

    Back in its time, if you had one of these fancy home entertainment systems, you had it made. You also probably had a big house to put it in.

    When TV was furniture!!! I used to have an old RCA console, no radio, but all wood cabinet on wheels. At the very least, I have a nice 40" mitsu CRT (direct view). All the retro games go on it, scan lines are nice and thick, rivaling that of a PVM (better than the sony 310).

    Had, a 1972 Zenith that size, did my own maintenance, used a color bar dot generator to converge it, took two strong men to move it, had to remove the back. Then went completely crazy buying a 43" rear projector with 3 CRT projection tubes, that took about four men to carry and extremely difficult to align three tubes.

    Then a LED 65" Sanyo wall hung model that only weighed 40 pounds and hangs on the wall and does not need convergence. I can forget about the past.

    Purchased a bunch of VCR tapes, looked pretty good on a 27", terrible on a high res 65" inch so now switching to bluray DVD's. Still have over 200 12" LP's to get rid of plus a 80 pound Sony tape deck, but converted all my music to high quality MP3's, have over 5000 songs on a one ounce USB stick.

    This is Brian. I'm surprised it works at all. As I was growing up, a console tv with a stereo system would self destruct. Only a misinformed consumer would buy one. You see, there was entirely too much going on inside them and they were a nightmare to fix. Most of all, the speakers vibrating the tubes and connectors led to loose components that would make them break down. It was a horrible idea. Thanks for sharing.

    I spent my summers with my Grandparents up in Young and Jack County Tex and the summer of the Apollo 11 I badgered her into buying a color TV. Wisely she went for an RCA console. Gorgeous TV with amazing color. If I remember correctly a number of other set manufacturers used a clone of the RCA chassis.
