Dears, just trying my luck here without much hope.

Back in the 1970s, maybe around the 1975 timeframe, I recall Dad getting a book named "Amplifier Circuits" kind of the size of a special edition magazine of those times and it had some kind of a brown design (like a PCB) on the front and back cover (cant recollect firmly which volume it was but faintly recollect that it was either volume-1 or volume-2). This amplifier book basically contained circuit diagrams, mostly hand drawn, of the public address amplifiers of those times, with Indian brands like Ahuja, Harman, Roxy, etc. This book contained circuits of both valve and amplifier based circuits. I had this book lying somewhere at home, but searched high and low for it today, without luck. Unfortunately it seems to have disappeared, probably with old books and news papers to the Kabbadi wala.

I am specifically looking for this book or schematics from similar books for PA Ahuja valve amplifiers in the 10 watts, 15 and 20 watts range with output powered by 4 x EL84. Specifically, the schematic of Model TM-50.

Any help or guidance would be like gold dust and is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.
