"Scott, I found this on the net https://dalmura.com.au/static/Hum%20article.pdf I think that this may help, there is a section on mains hum, possibly wiring the heaters back to back will make any common signal cancel out, Mike"

"First off, do NOT plug it in without having someone check it over. At best, I will blow a fuse, at worst, you could damage something hard to replace.  The price will depend on the condition of the chrome. If it is rusty, that will degrade the…"

"I have one of those too, also without a cabinet which I assume is what you mean by "case". People will want to buy the speaker - alone, possibly the turntable, maybe the tubes and knobs, but the rest is probably not worth the shipping…"

So I finally found an 18" speaker for my Masterpiece V in Clifton cabinet.  The original speaker is most likely in Japan, courtesy of a greedy seller.
