"My guess is that it was a chassis designed to support record cutter operation on a Phantom receiver and employing resistance coupling rather than transformer coupling. Norman"

"I don't believe the chassis was ever assembled, there are no marks on it to appear as if it was used."

Scott Seickel replied to Kent King's discussion Unusual amp chassis
"Well, my 2 cents:  It is set up for FP style capacitors which came into use in the late 30's, about '39 or so to the best of my knowledge.  It was Mershon wet type before that and stud mount.  It looks like an extended…"

Thomas Day replied to Thomas Day's discussion Allwave 23 sr#J497
"Hi all: Thanks to the Scott info archives, I found the (a) schematic for the 7 knob version of the Allwave 23 that may closely correspond to the one I have. It has the antenna coupling system J-497 has. However J497 is a 5 knob version, since the…"

David C. Poland replied to Kent King's discussion Unusual amp chassis
"On the amp chassis, looks like the round side apron is large, as if designed for a Jones plug (like on the 1941 Laureate). The shape of the two transformer punch outs suggests to me a later Philharmonic or Phantom power transformer. So I am thinking…"

"Could be 2A3s too. Now let me throw in something else many folks may not have seen. This is probably not related to the amp chassis, but - it does show Scott sometimes put odd things under tube shields. This is a device found with a Phantom - the…"

mike hadley replied to Kent King's discussion Unusual amp chassis
"Maybe the line up could be from right to left, power transformer, a pair of 5z3's, then a couple of chokes followed by three smoothing caps, then 6 x  6l6 tubes in push pull, finally a 6sn7 phase splitter, that would be good for a 100watts…"

Unusual amp chassis

Folks - I have had this for years. I've asked before. We have a new, pretty active group here. What do you all think this might be. Speculate: what would the tube lineup be and why? I've long suspected it might be a chassis for some variation of Quaranta, especially with the connector holes on the side. Would love to get your thoughts!KentSee More

"I use one of these, Bandwidth is excellent, a good companion for my Philharmonic, plus it uses the whole radio not just the phono input. Mike"

Plug and Play FM tuner

Hi all. I thought I would share this FM tuner I found on Amazon. It's works quite well plugged into the aux jack as is. it can also be jumpered for mono output. Tough to beat for $ 25. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N4AHISZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1SteveSee More

Steve Pierce commented on Steve Pierce's status
"Thanks Scott and Kent.... and I agree, without knowing the status of the transformers this could be just another boat anchor. ( I have plenty of those now ). I've actually created a functioning power/amplifier for my AW23 that works quite well.…"

"I have received the choke from AES, but have not had a chance to test it. I've got an AW23 on the bench right now, will be there for a couple more weeks I expect...I'll let you all know. Kent"

Troy Taylor replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Just acquired first EH Scott radio, an Allwave 12, and have some questions.
"Hello-  It took longer than expected, but last evening I finally got a chance to investigate the power supply.  I could not find anything amiss with the filter caps or any other components.  So I replaced the faulty 80 with a known…"
Thursday
Scott Seickel commented on Steve Pierce's status
"That one would leave me really concerned about the power transformer.  The only way to take those chrome covers off the sides would be to take the transformer apart, unlike the chokes where the side covers just snap on and off.  This one…"

New Chrome...

Posted by Scott Seickel on December 29, 2020 at 7:30pm 4 Comments

I have these 4 rechromed chassis back together.  The second one from the right is completely done and working.  The one with the 4 original wet electrolytics (right most one) has had new Nichicon's installed inside them and just needs the wiring completed.  The one on the far left had mice go to town on all the wiring in combination with a butcher human working in there, so it will be all rewired from scratch.  The AW23 amp (second from left) required I put 2 amps together to make one nice…

Scott knobs?

Posted by Forrest Wagner on December 3, 2020 at 9:02am 2 Comments

I only have one EH Scott radio that was put together from several Phantom Deluxe radios I acquired.  That said, these radios came with some other parts that I have sold or are selling.  One of the things that came with these radios is a set of knobs.  I have no clue if these are EH Scott knobs, if it is a complete set, what model they were for, etc.  Can someone confirm if these are, or are not Scott knobs?  Thanks much!…
