    The crossection pictured is of a 2420 or LE85, not a 435Be. The 2420/LE85 is decades older than the 435Be.

    I believe the orange colored silicone O-ring is correct.

    That was sold as an empty piece of furniture. There could have been a JBL SA600 integrated amp or almost any brand of audio gear in there.

    Interesting find.
