I can't find any information on this particular stereo console, please help identify.
Receiver is Clairtone T7
Turntable is Elac Miracord 10
The console is 81.5" long
This appears to be a version of Project G, but the receivers had Project G stamped on them instead of T7.

I can't tell you much about it, except that I believe it was distributed in Canada by Wm. Layton Audio in Montreal.

Looks like a Clairtone 721 Signet.

It looks similar to the 721 Signet but it is longer, and the electronics inside are different
Perhaps it's a custom made unit by Clairtone?

Very nice console! Most of the consoles from that era that have survived are butt-ugly but that one is a beauty.

I have a Delmonico from 1961 that I will never part with.

I never got the appeal of the Clairtone consoles. Sure they look pretty good but how do they sound?

Pretty sure Project G used off-the-shelf Clairtone receiver/turntables. Project G stood apart from all other models with the Sound Globe speakers and of course its styling. G2/G3 tried to supply a similar styling as a cheaper option more practical to the masses.
