Hi Byrd and Airtime,
I never saw one of those before either. It reminded me of a (mini) JBL Paragon...Mark Korda

This ad reads, "first complete stereo speaker system in one unit". I know Res-O-Kut was an old company but did this really predate the JBL?

What is the date of the posted ad for the Rek-O-Kut speaker?, posted on January 10, 2017 at 13:26:45

The Paragon appeared in 1957 and made a splash. I do not have any recollection of this or any other R-O-K speaker; they made turntables.
