The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Ever since I first heard of EH Scott radios and joined this forum, I've been looking for a Philharmonic to "fall into my lap". Well, when Ron R. sold me his Marine SLRM I saw his AM/FM Philharmonic sitting in the corner. When he offered it for sale, I knew I would own it, I just didn't know how soon. Now, a couple of months later, it's here in my possession. Thank you Ron!
This will be a major project including some re-chroming. I want to do the radio and Ron proud! I heard Dave's (in Northern Michigan) Philharmonic (and a lot of other radios!) and decided I needed to get right on it. So, the work has begun. I decided to start with the amp/power supply as that is the easiest. Because of all the small parts around the transformers, it's also the most expensive to re-chrome (driver transformer cover, IF shields and tube shields will not be re-chromed as they can easily be destroyed, though I may give Dave's re-chroming shop in Milwaukee a try.)
This Philharmonic did not have tweeters. I would like to add them if i can find a set.
Also, since the FM is useless without a converter to the current FM frequencies, I'll be looking for a converter. i saw the schematic in the archives. Maybe i'll have to build one.
