Default Re: Philips 274A - ugly duckling!

Hi again Sideband,
Thanks for the response. I would describe the audio as lacking in brightness. Perhaps the inherent regeneration (presumably there must be some to give so much gain) reduces the bandwidth a bit too much. There is no adjustment so it's impossible to say. I did wonder whether the PM24A was a bit weak but it tests out OK on the AVO VCM. I wonder if you explored the inards of the wet electrolytics. Interesting construction!
