    Question Altec 344A Integrated Amp (mono 6BQ5)

    I picked this up yesterday and variaced it up. I can't find squat of info about it but it seems very, very cool. Serial # 177

    Once again I defer to the amazingly knowledgeable folk here for more fun facts about obscure items

    Nice color green, Seems to lack really big output tubes so I am guess it is a preamp or a pre driver amp used with a main power amp.

    6BQ5's are not very big!

    They are however a pentode type and a pair of them will yield from 12 - 17 watts output. I would guess the middle tranny is the output!

    Looks like a nice collectors item though!
