Exclamation Lafayette Phono/Reverb /Center channel amp

I got this for a Stereo systen I built back in the 1960's I would like to know if anybody could give me a model number for this unit. It has 4 tubes 6AU6, 6GW8, 6X4, 12BH7A. and is used as a Center channel amp, or a Reverb unit, or as a phono amp. I have searched the net and as close as I can get is the Lafayette Reverb II. Can Anybody HELP?

Did you purchase it from the Lafayette store on Euclid Ave., across from Olson Electronics?

Hey ampman59,

I picked one of these up today at an estate sale. One of the tubes doesn't seem to light-up (the 6GWB) but all the other tubes glow and get hot. When I turn the volume, I get a little static and crackling sounds. I am not sure what to plug-in as an input source. Every phono input I have seen has 2 RCA plugs and a ground - this unit has only 1 RCA plug. What did you use to feed an audio source into your unit?

Hi Jayclary

Sorry it took so long to get back with you.

The phono input is a crystal/ceramic input and has only one channel (MOMO) there is a 3.3meg resister paralleled with a 10pf cond. which goes to the "Selector Switch"

Do you know the model number of this unit? Mine doesn't seem to have one.
