Well I have another unusual Valve Amp. It's an AWA 1G57287 60w PA Amp. But it has an AWA Bar-2 Broadcast Amplifier (mixer) front end.

Which means 4 Transformer Balanced inputs and a Balanced output also feeding the 12AX7 and KT88 valve Amp. These look like they were a limited run as the serial number is 85 and a few people I know who worked in the industry in the day have never seen one.

Cant wait to clean it up polish the knobs and re-hammertone the case. I have info on the Bar-2 front end but would love any info on the unit itself!

Early to mid sixties. Fuses on front panel potential shock hazard for non tech people.

I would reckon mid to late 60s as the Bar-2 front end is early transistor .
The AWA amps tended to look older than their Philips counterparts!
