Help to Identify Magnavox Portable Stereo 2SC235R
« on: October 08, 2017, 10:28:44 AM »
Hello all,
I'm looking to buy this portable, but I don't have access
to the amp chassis.
Is there any chassis index for Magnavox model numbers ?
I did searches here, without success.

Magnavox model # 2SC235R

It's listed in the 1961 brochure on page 17.  It says it has a stereo amp but doesn't say which one but would have to assume that it would be the BOTL for that year.  The amp is possibly an 8600 series which is a SE 6bq5.  If it is they're said to be sweet little amps.

Thanks, Dan.
I thought it was an early 1960's player.
Located the brochure/info now.
Found the 8600 amp under "amp8601xx" in Sams.

Would anyone know the other possible amp's
chassis number for this model ?

I don't know of an index that lists amp chassis specific to model numbers.  Magnavox mixed and matched components to such an extent it would be difficult to document everything.
If it ain't broke, call me.  I can break it....
