I'm looking at an 80's Rodgers 760. It has numerous external speakers including the P32 bass cab. In a personal residence, is it technically possible to set this console up with good stereo speakers instead? (Is it aesthetically acceptable?) Is maintenance a significant issue for this era and model? Thanks for help from anyone familiar with this model!

I don't know what sort of support Rodgers has for this model, but in general many of the chips used in 70's and 80's vintage organs are no longer available. When service is needed on any organ these days it will be difficult to find a deal.

I've seen some organs set up with a good pair of studio monitors and they sounded pretty good.
