it's a fair price.

that unit should have the 9304 (4) EL84 amp chassis in it.

Possibly the 7002 multiplexer and a set to RP109 horns....


Loud and Vintage.... any questions?

$125 is fair because that is NOT an Early American or French Provincial, like my Normandy 1ST659 is. Mine has the same equipment vintage collector says with 12" woofs, making it a real sleeper

I could live with the style as it is it's function not it's for that's important.

Sliding tops are in bad shape... on the plus side it does have 12" woofers.

The sliders look like they suffer from staining more than deformity in the pic.  I could live with that as well.  If I could only find a helper to get it loaded and bring it here, I'd get it.

I have a set that looks exactly like that, but it does not have the treble horns, but uses a midrange and tweeter on each front side.  It's a great sounding set, but sadly there's no room for it in the apartment so it's been hiding in the basement for over a decade.

Didn't the lower end models with the smaller tuner have the 6V6 amps? Or single EL84 per channel?
I've only ever run across the 9300 series EL84 amps in the ones with the Gold faced tuners.

I'd call this a middle of the line set, and I know mine has 4 EL84 (6BQ5) output tubes.

The 9300 series 6BQ5 amplifier was used in the six-knobbers.  That one probably has the 6V6 amp.  It would still be a robust performer.  The output on the 6BQ5 amp and the 6V6 amp was the same, 15 watts per channel.

I can't get any help to move it short of hiring 2 movers for a day to move it.  Would've liked to get it though.
