Comment: The basic difference between the 233 and 270 models is the speaker size. Models 233 and 270 utilize the same chassis and schematic The two output tubes in the last audio stage are connected in parallel. There is an 'economizer' switch to save battery power. It reduces the output from 0.5 to 0.25 watts by disconnecting one of the two AF output tubes.
