MM, all of your oddities this week are right on, except... The stereo in question is an old RCA console (they were originally for 45s only, I believe, when RCA thought it was competing with the LP). It played in monaural when one just used the console alone. But, if the same one wanted stereo, there was an addon speaker that made the console itself one channel, and the remote speaker the other.

Happy New Year Marc.
