"TOWER of POWER"
This is one fine vintage audio system! All very high quality vintage components in a modern steel rack that just flat ROCKS!
Starting at the top, literally on the top, is a Sirius satellite radio "Starmate" receiver.
At the top of the actual rack-mounted components is a power panel complete with master switch, pilot light, and fuse. This controls the line voltage to the entire rack.

The master controls are a Crown IC150A
Integrated Circuit Stereo Console.

Authentic 70's vintage CROWN label installed on rear door proudly defines the rack's contents.
