Cool André Charlin anybody got his Tube Amp

No detailed documentation has yet been found about the tube equipment manufactured by André Charlin before aproximatly 1968. The models we know of are:

* A 2 x 9W power amplifier with ECL 82 push-pull
(schematic (not ready yet))
* A 2 x 20W power amplifier with EL34 push-pull
* A 2 x 40W power amplifier with EL34 push-pull of similar architecture
(not ready yet)
Anybody know more of this Charlin ?
Anybody ever been owner of an amplifier by him ?

Hi ,
The Charlin amplifier shown on the picture is mine ;Sorry to appear so lately as I rarely cast an eye on this forum.Actually,I own 3 pairs of Columns Charlin(120-122-160) , the EL34 amplifier(2x20W),2 monoamplifiers dated 1957-58 with the separate preamplifiers and pre-RIAA.All of these components have been refurbished by myself and my experience growing,I do the same for other lovers of these original realizations.At each restoration,I carefully write down the schematics in order to complete the Svalander site which at the moment is still in hibernation but should be updated in the future.
Sorry for my bad english as i am frogg- eater

best regards

This schematic is... intriguing. Two lead compensations from the tertiary winding?
What is this 3n /100KOhm /3600 Ohm network top right ? (for different output impedances? maybe)
