During the course of rationalising my vintage collection I have been collating old images and taking new ones of some of my vintage collection, and thought that I would start this thread for members to display and discuss ones truely vintage equipment.

I shall kick this off with some amplifiers based on the classic Mullard 5-20 circuit, Audiomaster 11A mono amplifiers manufactured by W & N Electronics Ltd in London W13 circa 1959. At the time of manufacture they were rather expensive, the mono amplifier retailing at £29-10s-00 and associated control amplifier for £28-15s-00.

W & N utilized expensive Partridge Mains and C Core Output transformers, further information........

For my next instalment.....Sansui AU-111 stereo amplifier circa 1966, a beautifully toned and insightful integrated amplifier and the last valve product from Sansui before the C change move to transistors, Sansui contracted with Hashimoto to wind a wide bandwidth output transformer for their swan song to valves 20Hz - 50KHz. Sansui utilized the 6L6 GC for the output valves however I prefer the 7581A.
