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…Continue

Any guesses here ?

"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 "

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. "

David C. Poland replied to Dave's discussion Any guesses here ?
"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…"

"Reportedly, the chassis was very rusty, poor condition and the cabinet had been badly refinished. I suppose someone could make it a real project set, but if those things are correct, the price isn't as low as it looks."

Dave - I attended the auction and looked the early AW-23  Scott 5 knob radio over. No statement made of the working condition. I passed it up.

Sold for $750 plus 10% gallery fee plus 7 1/5% State tax - so pushing $890.

A lot of corroded chrome with some bubbling and pealing on the receiver and amp. Sovtec output tubes. The cabinet had been refinished with a rather flat finish which pretty well hid the beauty and depth of the fancy fiddle grain tropical Laurel veneers. Oil finish?  The Richmond Designs repo Aztec speaker cloth (a darker 70% scale repo of the original gold cloth) has a bit of a green cast that, to me, did not compliment the blond cabinet.

I was not interested. Looked like more work that I was interested  for  result unsatisfactory to me. (I have an excellent example in that cabinet already.)  Hope the buyer restores it, rather than parting it out, Properly restored electrically, a great sounding radio.

Need help with schematics for the Masterpiece 6. There was an early/late version, mine the earlier with dual choke power supply. There may
Be other variations much like Scott.
