"Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the tuner chassis so we can verify whether or not it is an Allwave Deluxe as stated on the guarantee or an Allwave Fifteen based on the serial number?"

Philly Amp wiring

I am working on a Philly amp and am finding a number of wiring mods that deviate from the schematic. Some are due to someone bypassing a bad audio transformer and for adding a second phone plug input with volume/mixing pots.But I also found a 125 ohm Candohm type resistor that is factory mounted to the side of the amp chassis. It is connected in series to the cap connected to pin 6 of the set plug socket and then tied to ground. It doesn't show on the schematics that I have. Has anyone seen…See More

My Philharmonic featured on SWLing Blog Post

Posted by Ken Carr on April 6, 2016 at 1:14pm 5 Comments

I subscribe to an excellent blog called the SWLing Post. It is run by Thomas Witherspoon, a man who has boundless energy.

Recently he featured a Crosley radio that was competing for the high end market back in the late '30's. At the end of the article he asked if any of his readers had a 'benchmark' radio. 

I responded with a few photos of my BOL Philharmonic and he created a post from my information.
