Model Differences:

* Models 73 and 74 use a shadow type tuning indicator. Model 75 uses a  6E5 tuning indicator.
* Model 75 also has an overload indicator, It comes on whenever the audio voltage across the speaker
coil exceeds 2.9 volts. It turns off when the voltage drops below 2.5 volts. The overload device is essentially a
voltmeter movement.. A light source is positioned behind a circular disc.When the voltage exceeds the "trip"
value, the disc flips open and then closes once the voltage drops down to normal.
