Seeburg HSC1 Home Stereo Console
Up for auction is a vintage Seeburg HSC1 Home Stereo Console, this was going to be a project restore that sadly never got off the ground. The service manual and parts catalog were purchased to help with the rebuild but I do not have time to finish it, nor do I have the room to store it anymore. The unit was in working condition with the exception of the AM/FM tuner pre tear down. The cabinet, record changer mechanism, amp, hardware and even the remote dialer are included (all the original parts required to reassemble). The cabinet is in great shape with a few blemishes on the top surface that would need to be refinished, and the electronics would need to be tested and adjusted by somebody that has worked on this type of equipment.
History / Info:
HSC1 Home Stereo Console 100 selections, 33⅓ RPM.
Introduced 1967. Price (May 1969) $1295
Seeburg decided to get into the home stereo business in a big way, releasing 5 different models plus accessories, pictured here and below. This machine also used the 12-inch 33 1/3 RPM mechanism in a fine cabinet including speakers and an AM/FM tuner. The receiver was built by G.I. of Canada, and wasn't too reliable. For this series of home stereo units, selections were made by entering a two-digit code (00 through 99) on a rotary telephone dial. Extra buttons permitted all selections to be played, or all to be cleared. The dial connected to a stepper unit, contained in the control center along with the power supply, and other miscellaneous circuitry. This machine used the 3S12T1 mechanism, similar to the 13S12T1 used in the AMS, but eliminating the ability to play the background music records and cam plates. Also, it was different in color (brown vs. coral for the 13S12T1).
