I should have started this thread a long time ago, I just stuck my finds in with whatever amp I was working on at the time. I saw this one online for $25, my kind of price. But I have collected enough early era radios, do I need one more? I already let three SS organs with decent speakers go, and they were free. But I just got home, it was listed for an hour. Butt ugly, but for what I want it for not an issue. I saw a cap can and a tube sticking out, an array of knobs, bass treble, selector, tuning, I was guessing. Messaged and said I'll meet him. Bought it without even looking at it, when he helped me to put it in my car, it wouldn't fit. I have bought a few and somehow squeeze it in, this one no chance. We left it by the house and I got my trailer. Got it home, started taking the chassis out. It was at the bottom, a 12" speaker in the rear, might have a full range firing forward, the front panel is angled to face splayed outward. Got the chassis unbolted, wires going up to where the speaker is. Oh, did I mention it is -23 C (-10 F for all you disadvantaged on the wrong side of the border) and my fingers were starting to feel it unscrewing stuff. Got the back panel off and... ...a chassis with the power supply and power amp on it. The bottom chassis was disconnected from the amp chassis and tucked in the top section. And behind the amp chassis facing forward, two more 12's. Well it is truly bizarre. Thought it might have been a home built but the tube layout label beside the amp chassis shows two sections. A VHE-809 RCA, schematic wonderfully available. I see from the service manual how the receiver was suppose to sit, looked like it was jury rigged on the side. http://pacifictv.ca/schematics/rcavhe809data.pdf The amp circuit a Cathodyne with a 12AU7 rather than a 12AX7, just one tube short of a Fender 5E3 Deluxe. Or a BF Princeton. I have never picked up an amp that is so ready to convert into a guitar amp. I am going to have to think about what I will do with it. And for good measure, the numbers on the speakers which I can find nothing about. 961380-2W 279437 RL111D-1. Check the service manual, stupid. The speakers are, Silly me, in the service manual, Olson Curvilinear Speaker.
