SERVICE DATA The set is covered by Trader service sheet #1460.
CURRENT STATE Was covered in years of grime but polished up OK. Despite it having lived in a garage, I couldn't beleive just how clean the chassis was, it is immaculate - check out the line output stage on the right! It can't have seen a lot of use, and given that all three top cap connectors had been unplugged from their valves I suspect the set was retired with line output problems.

However the set has run long enough to burn out part of one of its resistor droppers which is bridged by a trusty old RS Components part.
