    Just picked up this Pioneer SM-G205 tube receiver.

    I can't believe it has 19 tubes!

    Looks pretty old. Does it work?

    Haven't powered it up yet. Made in 1963.

    Spec's say about 16W per channel. Probably IHF rating considering it's age. But the ECL-86 (6GW8) is supposedly good for 9W per tube maxx'ed out. Say about 6.5-7 watts reasonably run, or about 13-14W per channel @ 1kHz into 16ohms. Schematic is available @ HIFI ENGINE.
