Martel solid state receiver Chassis #T9M
view: According to some sources, the brand ROTEL is the fusion of
Martel and Roland for it's hi-fi division. New informations recieved
(thanks Dennis) reveals that the chassis number of this model is T9M (M
for martel) and were produced in Canada by Clairtone sound Corporation
in there Nova Scotia factory. A similar model with Clairtone's brand
name was too in production under chassis number T9(see photo below). I
had that other version of this reciever but I don't know where it
headed. I doubt that I've sold it but no impossible.
view. Wiring and components tells me that this is 1960's technology.
Probably Mid 1960. Maybe this receiver was sold in kit to be assemble.
This one looks like factory assembled.
Output is driven by 4 TO3 transistors. They could probably drive more
then 15 watts RMS per channel, however, the line circuit breaker is
rated 0.52A, which is about 60 watts in consumption.
The Clairtone CT 101B reciever, chassis # T9, from the same factory as the martel's production.
