The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Been a while since I wrote. I picked up a Scott Laureate and would ask if anyone could confirm the cabinet type for me.

Would you consider this to also be an Oxford cabinet? My Laureate has the spot for a turntable but it appears one was never installed. It has a different speaker and includes the tweeters…Continue

I have also just found another Allwave 23 but it did not have the power supply/amplifier. I am new to radio restoration and Scott radios in…Continue
