They can be reliable (I had a Silvertone CTC-15 clone in daily status for ~5 years) but always check and dip the cathode current with the lin/efficiency coil. Sam's usually has a typical and a max spec...Get too close to the max and you're on shaky ground.

You sure about that? I had been under the impression that this is an Admiral creation. Chassis number is 24A2.

The set is an Admiral build 100%. If its a copy of the RCA I
dont know, I dont remember the tube line up.
These sets can give an unbelievable pix, as good as any.
