I believe that, like many manufacturers in the radio business, they wanted to show what they could do and the result was the 2961.
Produced around 1947, the radio is AM-FM-SW with a Webster phonograph and 29 tubes.
I generally don't care for late 1940's cabinets but the wood work on this one makes it stand apart even before you open the doors.
As fun as that would be (flames) it would also be a tragedy since the picture above is not likely to be repeated any time soon. Just one of these amplifiers is so rare that having a pair for stereo is likely unheard of.
It is as unlikely as having two Zenith Stratospheres on the same bench - -
Anyway, I did add a preamp and had a listen using the speakers in my office.
How did they sound? OK. Like many high-powered amps, they seemed to lack a little on the top end (treble response - NOT tribble response - she can't take much more of this)
In a way I was glad that they did not sound great since they take up a lot of shelf space and I might have never put the radio back together again.
The channel numbers on this FM dial are 200 to 300.
