It sold to a collector friend on the Oregon coast. He'll have it in tip top shape in short order so it's going to a good home. Jerry B.

Greetings all!
Just wanted to let you know that this machine is now owned by Lori and I, thanks to Rodney, Brice and Jerry. Special thanks to Jerry for all his efforts.
Lori and I have wanted to own an "Ensemble" for some time now. Of the three we have tried to acquire in the last five years, this one appear to be in the best condition and the most complete and original. As soon as it arrives near the end of November, it will be cleaned up, inspected and "gone through" with the greatest attention.
We have collected other automatic record changers (some with radio) through the years, including the wonderful Victor 10-50, Stromberg Carlson Model 14, Brunswick Model 42, Capehart Model 5, Kelley Music Cabinet with Capehart 10-12B and General Motors Model 290 with Capehart 10-12C (the Capehart 10-12 series are one of our favorites as they seem to never fail), RCA's RAE 26, RAE 59 and RAE 84. Our interest in record changers is an offshoot of our interest in very early jukeboxes, our earliest one being a 1912 Gabel Automatic Entertainer. To us, the "holy grail" of all changers is the 1917 Gabel-ola. Someday...
We would love to be in contact with anyone else who shares our interest in early changers. Feel free to contact us if you like.
Cheers, Russie and Lori Ofria
