Here is a close up of a brass 4 ....I had three of these and sold one before listening to it :(


Many thanks. So the sound boxes fitted to the VV-1-4 were brass! It's a shame Victor didn't go the extra inch and use the newly designed swan-neck tonearm and long gradually tapered horn installed in the VV-1-70. For a few dollars less in price, it would probably have outsold the 1-70.

I had a request for photos of the bottom panel and decal on my 1-4. A simple, one piece wood panel, held on by 4 round head wood screws. Here you go...
