It's a display box from a design/furniture store. I doubt it ever functioned as an amp.

This is a Majestic-7 Electric Receiver Model 70 by the Grigsby Grunow Co. The Grigsby Grunow Co. was founded in 1927. By 1933, they were out of business. So we know the receiver is pre-1933. T are no tubes with the receiver. They are all the old globe type. All the parts are present, including the original wood knobs. The unit weighs about 28 pounds.

Does look pretty cool, though. Love those tubes...

Bluetube Audio valve amp on Kickstarter http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1969365167/bluetube-audio-vacuum-tube-amplifier-with-built-in

So simplistic but that's why I like it. Might have to "borrow" the design when I finally get around to building a starving student.

checked out their kickstarter page...those speakers are pretty fresh. I'm a sucker for cherry wood. 700 bucks for the speakers + amp is a little steep for something that's never been heard before and can't be auditioned, though.

Can't imagine they'll sound great, especially as they're designed to play music over bluetooth.

Yeah, it looks great but it pretty much would need it's own room in your home! I bet it puts out some serious heat, too. Notice it's turned off in every pic of it blink.gif
