Hi all,I just acquired a Philharmonic with pointer (as per our instruction manuals).  It looks to be complete... but it has obviously been "serviced" by someone as several of the can filters have…Continue

"Hi Kent, Thank you for your extensive work on recording the serial numbers! I came upon my 1st Scott last September and am slowly working to restore it to operating condition.  The serial number is BB-73. What can you tell me about my…"

"Yup, that is the early chassis.  It is very difficult to find these early ones with the original electrolytic cans in place.  They leaked, and leaked early in life.  EH Scott even stated in their literature that a small amount of…"

"Also, be mindful that there was a factory wiring error on a large amount of these amps.  The wiring of the 50pF micas and 250k resistors was not symmetrical.  The schematic is correct, so just verify against the schematic that your amp…"

"Scott, were the original electrolytic can capacitors on the top of the chassis in a diamond pattern?  Not clear from your picture, but they almost look to be in a straight line which indicates a later version amp/PS chassis.  If you care…"

"Hello- I buy all my capacitors from https://www.justradios.com/ They are located in Ontario but ship to the USA from a post office in New York, so shipping times do not include waiting for packages to clear customs. They specialize in supplying…"

David C. Poland replied to Scott Dickson's discussion Need help on PhIlharmonic in Los Angeles, Central Valley area of California
"Today, go for the closest mfd  value that is above the capacitance specified in documentation. Commonly found values today are standardized at 4.7 mfd, 10 mfd, 22 mfd, 33 mfd, 47 mfd. at various voltage ratings. I mostly buy 450 volt caps.…"

"So, here is my first big question. I want to replace the caps in the amp section. But, I have no stock that will cover the wide variety of values such as listed on Rider 14-47: 60/300v, 40/450v, 30/475v, 60/300v, .1/600v, 16/475v, 500/475v?,…"

"Scott - Hmmm. Haven't made a careful study of VR-tube location. My two standard pointer Phllys have the VR at the rear. Rear VR location would block the extended tuning condenser shaft to the station pre-set housing of a remote control version.…"

"David P.,  have you ever seen a dial pointer with the VR-150 at the front that wasn't a factory remote?  I can't say I ever recall seeing one.  It seems to me that the VR-150 went to the front of the chassis (and stayed…"

"Thanks Scott and Dave.  I have already begun reading the instruction manual.  Very helpful! I will begin looking through it this weekend.  I wondered if the small extra was a pre-amp for something - phono make sense.  I realized…"
