Motorola Bench Stereo SK154 $75 Champaign IL

Post: # 22120Post macgolf »

Don't recall seeing this style in a Motorola 3 channel before. Looks to be a lengthy one.

That is an interesting concept, Mark, and it looks like on each end of the center panel there is an opening to let the bass out??? Is this one you will add to your collection? 10 speakers are a lot of speakers for a console, so I bet it sounds good.

Bill,

I've had houses that had large front windows and perhaps that was the design concept for this unit. That is a lot of speakers and amps. Too complicated for me to tackle. It looks like it has been sold now so someone's giving it a new lease on life.

It definitely is a unique unit, one that needs to be saved so I am glad someone picked it up and I hope for the right reasons.

There must have been requests from customers for the window seat size, several manufacturers produced them .. seems strange it would be on casters if it was used as a seat...

I thought the same thing, Elton. Sitting down on it would cause it to move but maybe the castors had a locking mechanism.

Yeah... 4" thick shag carpet. Bet there's orange yarn wound around the wheels.
