I picked this item up from a local hardware store which occasionally puts out “flea market” type product they acquire when they attend property auctions. This is a Monteverdi CCD-4578 console stereo system. These are the types of full featured stereos I used when growing up. Although this one is one of the older style units (having an 8-Track player instead of cassette), it is in relatively good condition. The only thing that’s wrong with it right now is the turntable. The mechanism probably needs to be rebuilt and lubricated. However, the rest of the system works well. It pulls in FM radio stations like a vacuum cleaner pulls in dirt. The sound is great through the cheap speakers it comes with. It sounds even better with higher quality speakers. Unlike other brands available at the time, this system supports four speakers for that “front/back” room effect. My plans for this system is to rebuild the turntable and put it to use as a home stereo system.
