wow you realized what JVC dropped the ball on.
I always envisioned a boombox that looked like a stereo version of the 550.
The handles and grills on the unit was so perfect it would have been amazing.

Ira, superb effort but I can't help thinking you'd be better off sourcing 'similar' items rather than holding out for original RC-550 parts.

thanks cris --agree this will be on ongoing multi-year search -

bumped every decade

 

but -- in the meantime --there is a huge world of available cabinet

hardware and trim rings that will look ' good enough '

Take a look at TCH redbenjoe, they sell abs and fiberglass laminated plywood very similar to the texture of the RC-550 and all the trimmings as well.
