This book covers the so-called Console Era jukeboxes built from 8/1962 to 1969: Seeburg 160-selection models LPC1 to LS2. It starts with an introduction, discussing what was new in each model, followed by a short description of schematic symbols used in in the remainder of the manuals. Next are chapters about the pricing units, selection systems, remote selection, mechanism control, and Sound System. The Album Scan Control is as well described. The troubleshooting section discusses several common mechanism-related problems. Finally a cross-reference for semiconductors is given.

Tony Miller tells: "In late summer of every year, Seeburg held a sales meeting in Chicago. The location was usually the Conrad Hilton Hotel in downtown Chicago, also the site of the annual AMOA (Amusement and usic Operators of Aerica) show held each fall. At the sales meeting, new models for the coming year were introduced to Seeburg's Distributors and certain selected Operators. Training sessions were held, introducing new features and instructing field service concept in jukeboxes was introduced, starting what came to be calles the "Console Era". It was at this meeting that the completely new LPC1 jukebox was introduced. Seeburg's advertising departement hailed this new machine as a "totally new concept in coin-operated phonographs that was to be as dramatic a breakthrough as the Seeburg Model M100-A was in 1948." Well, maybe not quite."
