A quick google suggests Silvertone seem to have made some similar units with BSRs. You may have to try looking under all the big US names: Sears, Zenith, Sylvania, Voice of Music, Philco, etc.

A Photofact wiring diagram for an Olympic model looks like a match. That is the only image I've seen that looks close to my console and the model number 223 probably means they are the same or subvariants. Thanks the input to help identify this console.

Funny that Photofact was published by Howard W. Sams & Co., based out of Indianapolis, where I currently live. I guess the answer to my question was right here all along. I ended up purchasing a nice, inexpensive copy of that Photofact on eBay for future reference.

First time I've come across a BSR UA8 Monarch in cream/white.

I had one years ago and it was the only one I'd seen.

Apparently it it came with a plastic cover, but I don't have that.

Thank you
Since posting this I have found lots of info about the Minichanger and there are many YouTube videos showing them in operation. Many manufactures used it, often with some interesting cosmetic changes.

I have seen a Westinghouse that looked very much like this. Interesting that there is no identification on it. Maybe some stick-on badge fell off?

Either a UA-70 or C-117

thanks

If the model number starts with C, it is a record changer. If it starts with P, it is single-play. If your C-series deck doesn't have an overarm, it uses an umbrella spindle.
