I finished my Packard Playmor today after I received the WB2MP3 V1.5 Packard emulator in the mail. I have the emulator and the 5v power supply inside one of the speaker boxes with the remote volume and reject button mounted on the back of the speaker. The speakers are 1928 Peerless Reproducers. They were initially manufactured for late 1920s vacuum tube radios and the Ohms are up around 2000. I installed small $20 audio transformers in each one in reverse to step them down to 8 Ohms to get decent volume levels. I followed the emulator installation instructions on the Retroelctronik web page and had no problems with incorrect song selection.

This project was pretty interesting with the 1928 speakers, fortunately I found some tips online to make them work. That has led me to consider another project that is a completely different use for a Solotone adapter, It is a work in progress, I’ll post it when it is complete.

Interested to see what you have planned for your Solotone adapter & how it works out.
I am currently working my way through cleaning checking lubricating and converting another Seeburg Sc1
Haven’t done one since last year as other projects take priority when the weather is nice and the day light hours are greater.
This one is going to have a Two Tone / New Wave theme to it.

Havent got anything to show you at present, as I am still working on the SC1
(or I will be when I return home)
When I have something to photograph other than a disassembled SC1 I will post them with pleasure.
Currently working on catching some rays.
