Dear Alfred Zeeb!

I compared the different kinds of Chassis, that you were asking for.

By the Model 4736 the boards of HF/ZF and NF are in line.

The Model 5751,with other tubes, has similary boards, but parallel.

I would say, you have the cabinet from the 4736W and a chassis of the model 5751W.

It often happened, that manufactors changed parts or, like in this case, a complet module, when parts are missing and the marketing had to go on.

Its possible, that other members have further informations.

Some time ago I bought a Loewe-Opta "Luna-Phono-Stereo 4736W". It's cabinet has the dimensions of the 4736W, the rear panel describes it as a 4736W and the "Bestueckungsplan" (inside rear panel) lists the correct tube complement for the 4736W. There is even a stamp on the chassis designating it clearly as a 4736W. See pictures:

Markings on the dial glass are "BSB 4731-01 00-6". The serial number as per a paper sticker on the chassis is "36 12162".

However, the tubes actually installed are ECC85, ECH81, EBF89, ECC83, EM84 and 2x EL84 as used in the successor model "Luna-Phono-Stereo 5751W". Also, in all other respects the circuitry is that of the 5751W.

Do I have a 4736W with futuristic innards or a shrunken (only 1 speaker) 5751W?

Is ist conceivable that at model change time Loewe-Opta was stuck with leftover 4736W cabinets and decided to stuff them with the next generation chassis?

What should be more important in classifying this (or any other) radio: Properties of the cabinet or those of the electronics?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.
