    looks fine to me - are those 6BQ5 outputs?

    It's (IME) impossible to build a bad sounding amp - PP or SE - using 6BQ5s :-)

    Now, back on topic - how about this goofy SE 7591 stereo console amp? This was a $3 acquisition (the whole console) at a fundraising flea market at our church many years ago. How did it sound? OK - I never tried it with fresh output tubes, though - the originals may have been very tired.

    Nope. That is the SET amp. It does have a couple of Baldwin tubes in it though.

    This one isn't mine; I have one, but not prettied up :-)
    This is a push-pull EL84 stereo power amp, chassis 93-02, abstracted from an early 1960s Magnavox console. Those old Maggotbox consoles had extremely simple (very low parts count, even kind of crude in design) but surprisingly good sounding amplifiers. They're great starter tube amps for someone who is willing and eager to tinker a little bit.



    Mine still looks like this :-) I ususally use it, rather heretically, with a pair of AR-3 three-way acoustic suspension (and quite insensitive) speakers. PS I have a prettier pair of AR-3s than the dump-find pair shown below :-P



    Just a little more on the Maggotbox amps. This is an extremely similar one, chassis 88-01 (or 88-02); this one is a push-pull 6V6 stereo amp (about 10 wpc) and also very nice sounding. I was partially responsible for the "modernization" of this one; some of the work was done by its owner.




    I hope the below-decks view gives an idea of how little "there" there is there (to paraphrase Gertrude Stein) :-)
    Here's another way to see that, if you're used to looking at schematics. Not too much stands between your source and your speakers with an amp like this - and that's generally a good thing :-)



    (I edited out the power supply circuit - it, too, is simple but effective)
    all the best,
    mrh

    The Pioneer SX-34 my father-in-law gave me still has that magic green eye. Kind of cool if you ask me.

    Nice amp - I've got a 222C - and another basket case 222 - and an LK-72, both needing restoration (and no photos handy of either).

    The 299C I have is a real showstopper cosmetically. The real challange for me was restuffing the cap caps...as you know, very little space under the hood for replacements caps.
