Well, a 1942 Capehart 111M2FM

With serial number 17125, there shouldn't be much in the way of pot metal issues in the 16E changer.

At $600, its not a bad deal.

These things are sort of ugly though. sure, the record players kind of neat but what you get is a kind of a bland looking big wooden box

It isn't the fanciest Capehart, but its not bad in person. The cabinet style is called 'Early Georgian" and the one I have does have some nice looking veneer.

Get one of these puppies running and the sound quality is impressive with push-pull-parallel 6V6s and two 12 inch speakers. :D

I don't think it's too bad looking. I can't really stand the sets from the 40's that try to look like a dresser or some piece of furniture. This one still clearly looks like a radio to me, so it doesn't irritate me as much. As Steve said, if you get one with some nice veneer, I bet it looks pretty good. Not good enough for me to give up space for it though. :)

One day when my wife and kids stop consuming all my income and I can build a large pole barn, I'll consider sets like these. :)

I had one of these back in the 90's... it played perfectly and was cool to watch the changer...but part of my youth was lost forever while moving it. Was never so happy to see it go... Super quality piece though.. Not sure that $600 is a "today" price.
