Default Need help identifying this amplifier.

I found this Amp under a pile of rotting TV's the transformer tests good but I want to find another just like it for a matched pair. The tubes it took were a pair of 6k6 outputs, a 6SQ7, a 6SJ7, 6X5GT, 5U4GT. the amplifier chasis has the number 14D56-1 stamped in the upper righthand corner. The transformer is stamped 80B17 under that is stamped 549. I attached a picture, the main thing that makes this one different looking is the choke mounted 45 degrees from the trans. I am almost positive that this amp came from a console. It had a radio plugged into it, and a RCA labled phono. It was full of bumblebee caps if that gives any indication of its age. Any info as to the brand or model of console that this came in would be much appreciated. pic soon to follow...

RCA had a similar numbering systems on thier chassis, however Admiral labled thier parts like this.

this really reminds me of the old admiral 20B1

and I found a sam's link online its got to be 1949'ish since the sams number is 77:

on page 27 there's a picture that looks familiar
