Looks most similar to a 16A to me but dont think I've seen this one before.

Looks like a WWII Navy SLR series model adapted for home use on the surplus market after WWII

Nothing franken about it. Scott Export Receiver. Made from parts left over from military contracts and with the exception of a single newspaper ad not advertised. They are uncommon at best and in an original cabinet, rare.

And the ugly power supply is also original to the set, this makes the 3rd one I have seen. There should be a decal on the side of the chassis with a serial number, I would like to get it if possible.

Norman is right, this is a fairly rare post-war Scott.

Interesting the separate supply, here’s more typical layout as sourced in multiples from the Chicago Navy facilities. Many were built into barrack and research facilities. Sad these are overlooked as they are worthy sensitive receivers. This my daily player of 45 yrs. original speaker was quite pedestrian, driving the EV Wolverine output rivals most anything radio. This one was removed from well constructed oak laboratory cabinetry, commonplace at Navy yard. Never found reason to hide it, a conversation piece.

The seller has it listed for $750, I told her I'd do $100, but by all means I'd somebody wants it here is the link. At the least I'm sure she will be able to provide the serial number.

@tasar - you have a great example of the Export set! Is there a serial number on it?

Thanks for the link - $750 is too much, even though the set is unusual. It does have the right phono, that is something.

Here you go Kent. I was told years ago when taking ownership of this fine sensitive receiver, it was one of 11 removed during Chicago Navy abase renovations. Curious what would have been appealing to a European, having a 110v set ?

Thanks! Most of these are so close. I have one in a cabinet just like the one discussed here, I know it is in the low 300s. I also have a parts chassis on the shelf, it is 303. I appreciate you getting the number!

Here's a Scott SLR for comparison.

Scott Radio Laboratories produced the Export Receiver "under the radar" after war contracts were terminated. Hal Darr promised stock holders that the federal government would reimburse Scott Radio Laboratories for the unused parts purchased and manufactured for military production. Reimbursement was not in the military contract and was not a possibility. Use of the military parts in sets offered to the public conflicted with Hal Darr's promise to stock holders. Hence the low profile. I doubt many were exported although I have a vague recollection of one being in another country.

All Export Receivers had the integral power supply. The booster amp (separately powered) was necessary to drive the 12-inch speaker in a console installation.

Appreciate clarification Kent and Norm. Don’t recall original speaker as anything special as a PM type. We’re those with separate PS a field coil type ?
The EV shown above as a 16 ohm 3 way, two horns and a 12” woofer, is easily driven to 90dB plus. Great clean sound !

Kent, is that a page from a brochure featuring the Export Receiver or some other model available in the Recency console?

This is from the "Series 800" brochure. Like you said, the Export was barely advertised - I'd have to dig but I'm not sure I have anything in my literature trove on the Export other than a manual and some service data.

Wouldn’t mind a copy of the manual Kent. Still unknown to me is the nature of the speaker for the unit with separate PS.

Are you a member of my Scott web site? (ehscott.com) If you don't want to do that, pm me and I'll email direct.

You can get a copy there, look in the "Scott Info Archive". I am not sure the manual covers the extra amp/speaker - I think it just shows the main chassis and the "standard" 12 in PM speaker. I really need to pull my amp and draw a diagram of the outboard unit to see what it looks like.

The speaker used in the console with the booster amplifier is the one shown in a photo above. It is nowhere near as efficient as the EV speaker you are using and it is not in a hi-fi enclosure.
