+1

I have an Arvin 9595 with a swirl pattern on the grill. Influenced by Pollock?

It's a beauty, Ken, and the random swirls on the grill really display the 1950's style.

The grill on a Regency has caught my attention also.

No not a local, had several of these over the years but this one has the best writing. My other favorite in the 888's is the Vanguard, performance is what I like about these. The Zenith Royal 500 is also a good player.

Yes, I like them also, had about 10 or so, but no Galaxy or leather covered Satellite. Now I only have 2 Pioneers in a box somewhere. I have about 7 500's. Need to get them out of hibernation also. Thanks, Chris

If you like that type of design, here's a GE I sold on ARF about 5 years ago;
