CHAMP ELECTRONICS -" THE VINTAGE VALVE AMP HOSPITAL"

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND

GENERAL LINEAR / RSC AMPLIFIER SERVICING WORK


Hello all you tube (valve) amp fanatics out there! I am still striving to get as many different amplifier brands & models onto the site as quickly as possible! This will all happen in time, as there are many more "goodies" to come!

For this latest addition (March 2009) I have decided to include ten more Linear/RSC products. Linear were actually sold under many various brand names and whilst I would class them as "the Skoda" of the amp world back in the 60's (sorry Skoda!), they nevertheless had some kind of charisma about them that made them interesting and even collectable......even as a cheap-amp!

Their various amps/models had many similarities, but were sold under many different names and with some variations between the said names/models.

There were many company links/connections between Linear, RSC, Goldenair, Northcourt, Sonas, Fal, Roost, and indeed Hiwatt & Vox too at some point in all of this!

The first three items of these ten, a Diatonic, an L50, and a L5/5 Stereophonic were serviced by myself. The following seven are sets of photos that have been kindly donated by various visitors to the site, for inclusion and interest. (Many thanks to you all who have kindly donated these photos).

I have made what I consider any notable comments on the various models' photos.....as always.

Please do enjoy everything. Cheers, John.
