  • Notes
  • It uses silicon transistors. This is one of last models that using a magnetic speaker instead of the usual magnetodynamic type. High impedance speaker with reed suspended between 2 pole pieces, drives paper cone with a stylus, and is directly driven in push-pull by a pair of collectors, without an audio output transformer. One of several contemporary GE transistor radio models to employ this kind of speaker which was originally used in the 1920's because of it's high efficiency and high impedance.

Il modello in mio possesso, pur essendo marcato (all'nterno) P1710A, presenta la particolarità di avere il circuito stampato con le piste in rame, dallo stesso lato dei componenti. ( vedi foto). Questo tipo di montaggio è abbastanza strano in un apparecchio commerciale, per cui ho avanzato l'ipotesi che potrebbe trattarsi di un prototipo. Sarebbe auspicabile chr chi ha maggiore notizie in merito, lo comunicasse su questo forum
