    The unknown transistor is in a black glass housing, most likely an OC75. AF117 and OC72 marked on the circuit board, actual set fitted with 2xAF127 and 2xAC132.

    Driver transformer for the output stage: Orega 1208.

    The manufacturers name is not on the set, however the set is quite similar in various aspects to the Reela models Snap Jet, Punch and Jet, and has the same transistor line up as the Reela Duc models.

    It is possible that this receiver is actually the Serret Sonate 2G, but that is as of now unverified, and therefore we list it under Unknown.
