"That Zenith 12-S-471 cabinet already had that large oval panel. An uncommon Zenith cabinet. The oval panel was merely replaced by another cut for the Scott Phantom."

"By the time EH Scott was building the Super 12, they were using resistors that are very reliable and stable.  Chances are that only a few will require replacement.  Most of the original resistors are 20% tolerance and still have resistance…"
