Found an old Magnavox console, that had one of the AMP185, 6V6 PP tube amps in it, circa 1960. It should be about 15w/ch...
There was very little wrong with it- in fact, the cathode resistors on all the 12AX7 input tubes, was the ONLY functional problem, preventing operation. Replaced those, along with the ceramic caps in the input stage, and WOW. I like it.
It's a little "extra full" in the absolute lowest bass registers (I would imagine it kinda just "ramps up" a bit, starting at about 45 Hz going downward toward 20 Hz, where it's probably 2 dB louder at 20 Hz than 45 Hz), but BOY... does it EVER sound NATURAL on midbass transients. There's a tactile nature to pianos, plucked strings, even clarinets and flutes, that just sounds LIKE THE REAL THING. I'm amazed... this was NOT an exotic amp, in the first place... it just happened to be very elegantly and well designed, apparently.
After getting it "souped up" and working, I "prettied it up" as well. Poplar wood planks on the sides and front of the metal chassis, with some planks on top to accomodate a power switch and output binding posts, with the wood stained cherry color. It's kinda cool looking now!
