Model E

1953 BAL-AMi Model E

Sold in the UK by Balfour but only with an AMi badge. There are still a few of these around as can be seen in my serial number listing that site guests have submitted.

Evidence suggests that Balfour only manufactured the E80 (45rpm) variant, and not the E40 (78rpm) or the E120 that were also produced in the USA.

Balfour probably hadn't got to the Beam-Echo amp deal in these early days, and thus a variety of amplifiers have been found in the Model E. These include a Leak TL10, an Eagle PA539N, and a Rogers RD Junior Power Amp Push Pull EL84.
