Original owners!

Of mid century Danish Modern (Scandinavian) Design, the FINLANDIA was RCA's TOP OF THE LINE stereo console - and arguably the 'best' RCA ever produced!

By far, more sophisticated in design - and superior in materials, construction and craftsmanship - than any other commercially available audio furniture of this era! (Including Magnavox, Broyhill Brasilia - with which it shares some design similarities - AND the Kuba). For instance, it is made from genuine walnut hardwood as opposed to birch stained to look like walnut; 70% solid wood vs. 70% birch plywood!

Here is an heirloom quality piece - putting aside the RCA name and electronic components, this IS an 'antique', a high end custom furniture piece!

The cabinet is in overall excellent vintage condition! (Retains its 40+ yrs 'patina')! It has a lowlustre, tung oil like finish. The hardware-less sliding speaker doors track smoothly. The lid door opens and closes effortlessly and quietly!

There are some tiny dings here and there less than 1/32", none which penetrate the finish, crush or tear the wood! Two short 1/2" scratches, one in front center panel, and one in the lid finger pull (photo #4). Also some light scuff marks on the top surface. (The only other thing I could find was a splinter on the right door handle)!

The stereo section (AM/FM tuner & amplifier), and turntable need refurbishing. AM works just fine! The FM below 96 mHz is out. The phono cartridge needs replacing. The turntable hasn't been used in 20 years and needs to be removed from the cabinet and checked out by a qualified service technician for speed calibration, etc. In it's current condition it well turn on, drop a record, and engage the tonearm. The On button of the stereo can at times create speaker feedback when turning on the unit. (But this doesnt occur when unit is warmed up). The auxiliary inputs work fine as do the speakers. (The speakers are literally a BLAST)! Count'em: 8!!! Air horns, tweeters, mid-range and woofers!!! All driven by 300 watts!

Speaker grill cloth is clean, untorn and unfrayed! All photos are of actual item! The colors in the images vary, but the purple brown color of the walnut has a very consistent, rich, 'milk chocolate' tone!

More images available upon request!
