Good afternoon, I received this unique stereo cabinet from a relative. I can’t decide if it’s the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen or the most beautiful piece of furniture ever created. It had a Bogen SRB-40 with speakers that I can’t identify. Any information on the furniture marking I found the on the bottom of a door and any information on the speakers would be greatly appreciated. I’d like to restore everything over time but it’s probably above my low skill set and pay grade. Very dusty I haven’t even started yet. Cheers,

The speakers should be by Jensen.

The sloping base/kick-panel (kicker) appears to be missing!

Wow, that’s the one. Thanks Greg I appreciate the info. I’ll definitely check out Sam’s 529. So far, with the small amount of research that I’ve done, it appears that I’ve stumbled upon something I’m not worthy of..

I sure hope that you took note of (labeled with masking-tape flags) all the wires that you disconnected before removing the tuner and speakers.

:) Greg.

Sort of a Bogen copy of a Fisher 500, using 7189 outputs like the Fisher 400. Bogen claims 40 watts output, an honest expectation for two sets of pp 7189s. With the same tubes Fisher advertising pumped their claims up to 67 watts.
This could be a very pleasing set, with a bit of TLC and a few capacitors.

The stereo belonged to a relative.

You are definitely worthy of it.

If you cannot do the work yourself or are uncomfortable doing it, find someone local who can do the work.
