Well, I gutted the Telefunken after it sat in my sisters basement for 10 years. I think that was about 1980. Was able to get the tuner section, the phono preamp and the power amp out. The speakers were, well........ in there. It had two side firing speakers and a panel along the front. I had my DCM Time Window and AR3a speakers by then so I didn't do anything with the Telefunken speakers. Hated to leave behind that teak cabinet, but I couldn't transport it (wouldn't fit my decor anyway). The tuner had those Telefunken tubes that looked like cats eyes (I think bob p used to use one as an avatar).
Never did roll the tubes in the power amp. Probably would have been a good idea. The thing only put out about 40 WPC. It was also pretty ugly with a bare metal chassis. I had to neaten up some of the wiring because it hung out of the bottom when it was installed in the console. Those big hunks of wood hid some messy wiring!
It should sound like it isn't there!
