It's a coral beta 10.

If I'm not mistaken it also has a matching passive radiator.

Yes.  They are stock speakers from the 70s as I understand it.

I have the fortune of having dealt with both Radu and Oliver.  Both make really great stuff.  I think the circuits and build philosophies are somewhat different and the iron used is always different.  That said, the results of both are undeniably awesome.  Radu has a blog with his stuff on it.  https://simplepleasuretubeamps.wordpress.com/

I bought a 301A preamp from Radu that was really well built. He does really good work.

Hi rabbit,

Quick question... just to take it off topic in a different direction... :D Do you get enough volume from the Type 45 SET into the Birch Ravens? I'm thinking of doing something similar (well, similar efficiency, no crossover) and your opinion would be helpful.

Cheers.

Before the Raven's , I had owned a couple high eff speakers from Omega.  2 watts is more than enough.  I feel the output transformers are critical and worth the extra $$$$ .     Recently installed a Mullard GZ32 from 1966..  great rectifier   :thumb:

Thanks Dwight - I may just give it a crack once I get my next amps built. I hope you are right re the transformers... I have 2x ~5.5kg of custom nano-c core awaiting my build - plenty of inductance and wide bandwidth. Power supply probably matters too.

Cheers!
