The Fine Things are Always Hand Made


I have decided to part with my Philharmonic and Capehart 16E. Both were professionally installed in a custom made cabinet made in London in the late 1930’s. I am in East Sussex, in the UK. I have a rough idea of  the value of the Philharmonic, but not the Capehart. They are rarely seen over here. Can someone here give me a rough idea of its current worth in, say, the US? It’s in excellent condition. I will not part them from each other, or their original cabinet, which is of the highest quality.

In case my first message wasn’t quite clear, I meant to say I will not part the 

philharmonic from the Capehart, or either from the cabinet. It goes without saying, I hope, that I won’t part out the separate units of the Philharmonic either.

Working Capehart 16E changers are worth around US $500.  However, installed in a custom console with a Scott Philharmonic the combination of receiver, changer, and cabinet may be of greater value than the sum of receiver and changer values, especially if the cabinet is very attractive and in good condition.  Can you post photos?

Hello Norman, I did post some photos of the cabinet here some years ago. However I can’t seem to find them. Will persevere.

I found your pictures, by clicking on your name and looking at the posts you've made over the years. But I cannot seem to copy them into this thread...

Well done! I can’t even locate the photos…
