"However, the 800B also has front panel station preset buttons that also operate the tuning motors and the AM/FM relay switch regardless of whether a remote keyboard is connected.  The prewar  Philharmonic has no station preset buttons.…"

"Remote operation of the Philharmonic tuner is the same as that for the Model 800B except for a change in remote keyboard wiring to accommodate FM stations on the 800B. Norman"

Curious how the remote motor drive engages tuning condenser and how it couples with dial Knob ? In the event the remote fails or missing, is manual tuning seemless ? I know this is either/or tuning with my 800b, but I’ve no experience with the Philly.See More

"Dave, best to wait for a complete set to come up, or at minimum, a complete chassis set including the tuner, correct speaker and a power supply/amp.  If you are very patient, you can collect the parts, but you may be measuring the time required…"

"Thanks David and Scott. Pictures do wonders for us “visual learners”. I’ve come across a mish mash of parts and PS. What I would like now is a restorable Philly as complete as possible. Need not be pretty. For now a dial glass and…"

"Just to help you out here, as a picture is worth a thousand works, this is a Philharmonic tuner chassis rear.  The 4 pin male plug goes into the power supply, the very small 4 pin female receives a cable from the crossover, and the large 7 pin…"

Scott Seickel replied to Dave's discussion High Fidelity System
"You are asking about the smaller 4 pin socket on the amp/power supply which connects to the tuner chassis.  It serves to turn the set on and off  where the tuner has the power switch built into it.  It also supplies 24v to the tuner…"

Kent King replied to Dave's discussion High Fidelity System
