Delmonico Nivico Company was a new and very combative company for Curtis Mathes to compete with back in the early days of the 1960’s.

Below are four very nice photos of a Vintage JVC Delmonico Model 1330 Stereo Console w/Turntable tube...very nice Vintage JVC Delmonico AM/FM Stereo Console with Turntable. Includes wired EQ (Balance) remote.
She has a great turntable as well and sound...
These old girls came on line at the same time Curtis Mathes was making a place in the stereo market.

Below is a Delmonico/Nivico  that was made by JVC. This is Model AW-6000 , this model was owned by Bob Hodge. Thank you Bob for sharing your beautiful photos of this model with us, and sharing your wonderful information with us.
 
 Bob was able to get shortwave receptions from Australia, Germany, Cuba, China, Russia, Taiwan, Norway, BBC, New Zealand and many other Foreign Language stations with this model here on the west coast of the good old USA.

It is so good to see a radio this old in such nice condition. This model comes with original  telescopic antenna, grill, knobs and a world map inside the lid which is a reproductions.

 

This well designed unit operates on DC {6 D-Cell Batteries} and it has an external connections for a tuner and earphones. The radio also has a rear panel for external connections.   

What is so nice about Bob’s radio is that it has the hard to find electrical schematic sheet.
