"Dave - As Norman said, this is an Export set (we have no idea about the name). See the Info Archive folder for full info on the Export. The SLRM has a very different dial face, but Scott had a lot of SLRM sets in production as the war came to an end…"

"Very nice.  Your receiver is a Scott Export Receiver rather than an SLRM.  The Export Receiver was a high fidelity receiver ostensibly for the consumer market. Norman "

SLRM's New Home

I've been patiently waiting for the "right" cabinet, this one began life as an early FM GE phonograph, a optional cabinet of the same Radio now housing my 800b. Both with the full doors are difficult to source these days. Many discount this set as a boat anchor, I disagree wholeheartedly. The 16ohm Jensen array is an easy load and I can tell you plays easily 90dB plus loud, very clean tone, brilliant highs with excellent bass. What's special is the provenance. A friends dad removed this set…See More

"Probably used in theaters or auditoriums as David said.  I had a couple of these.  Almost threw them out until I realized the ones I had were made by Western Electric....they financed a few radios. "

"I was hoping from the thread title, someone had found one. To my knowledge, none have ever turned up.  Another advertised model that's never been found is the McMurdo Silver Orpheon."

"Self powered speaker, meaning has its own power supply for the field coil. General shape reminds me of the speaker Scott used 1935-37. Could be a theater/auditorium speaker for more remote locations to avoid running high voltage long distances. The…"

AW23 Alignment issue

Posted by Kent King on October 6, 2020 at 5:06pm 8 Comments

Looking for ideas - I haven't dug into this too far yet.

I recapped an AW23 (late) and I'm now working on the alignment. Voltage checks were in spec. IF alignment went right by the service data and trimmed out nicely. By the time I got back to the 1st IF, I had significantly reduced the generator output to keep the meter from going over - gain was excellent. On to AM band - 1400 trimmer is super close, slight tweak and then dial down to 600. At about 750, the two neon VR tubes…

Rarity and Value

Posted by Jay on September 19, 2020 at 2:56am 1 Comment

Thanks for adding me to your ranks ! Looks like I will be getting an old Scott Cabinet radio Saturday. Elderly lady I know is moving / downsizing and is giving me the last of her late husbands radio collection. After he retired , he restored older radios so most likely they are in working condition. Just wondering if this is very rare and what the value might be. Thanks. Jay
