Default Re: Cossor 501AC 'Melody Maker'

Well done! I have a 500ac, same chassis but wooden cabinet (actually, there are different versions of the chassis, yours has B8A rimlock valves, mine has B8G loctals).

Sound quality is good in this set, but sensitivity is mediocre. It needs a good aerial.

One point: the mains transformer in mine went kaput, shorted turn symptoms, heat and smoke. I rewound it, but it may be a weakness in the design or materials. So don't leave switched on, unattended.
