Thanks Mark, the model RC10 is different from the supposedly upgraded Model 10 that I can't seem to find.

Model 10 was covered in Sams Photofact Set-176 Folder-9
I don't have it!

Nine pages can be downloaded from radiomuseum.org for free.
https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/radio10_1 ... tuner.html


A download link page will be emailed to you immediately.
You can only download three pages a day + up to a maximum of ten every 30 days.

Greg.


Edit: The late Dave Doughty describes the set here…

Sams is on my web page below - click "Technophool", then "Some '50s hi-fi scans" I think I got the pdf from Dave Doughty.

Anyone have a photo of the amp that was associated with the "R-10" model ? Apparently it, unlike the straight "10" followup unit, had a choke in the circuit.
If someone has a photo of this amp I'd appreciate seeing it here. The C400 was amp for the model "10" so not sure what designation was used with the amp with the RC-10 tuner.

Model 2 may have preceded the C400 - Sams is attached. The 500 amp was the top-of-the-line choice, using 6L6s in the Williamson circuit.

Yes, later Williamson circuits benefited the otherwise high gain circuit, with use of a choke. Aside from power, all earlier designs and circuit upgrades would benefit such. Thanks for the pdf.
