apologize for the senior moment above.

The 5503 was the TOTL of the original Craig 55xx line. The 5504,5 & 6 were a reissue.

I don't see any pics of the Craig Series 5000 here... I have a mint 5506 that I will post photos of if anyone wants to see them.... Parents bought it new in the late 70's I think...also have the matching turntable and did have 4 of the series 5000 speakers. but they were tossed years ago because the surrounds were gone

Hi Maz!

Yea, I would like to see pics of your 5506. Those Craigs are underrated & have a nice look about them.

Hi Maz!

Man, those Craig's are truly beauties. I bet the 5506 has a nice sound to it as well.
Very nice photos.

What cart. do you have on the TT?

The Mac is awesome...

C.E.C. turntable for sure. Looks very nice and I'll bet it sounds that way too. The receiver has a bit of a Technics look to it. Both are very handsome and, I would imagine, quite rare. Nice stuff!

Rome,
I am very happy with the 5506... 55/chl. it sounds very good & the tuner section is excellent... pulls in stations just as good as my TU-9900.... love the tuning Dial... one very soft spin it move effortlessly from one end of dial to the other...lol
The TT... I have to go look at Cart.... my old man installed it about 20 + years ago... don't think its been used since then, I just picked up both of these from parents attic.
Thanks! Love my Mac... I have the matching preamp but its in the shop for service
Maz.

An Empire, maybe an S-2000.

Hi Maz!

Yea, truly you have some fine Craig pieces of gear. Looks like your dad took care of the pieces & it shows.
