Help with Lafayette Tube Amp

Hope everyone is doing great. I recently purchased a refurbished Lafayette LA-230 Tube Receiver. Having a hard time finding information on it. I have found out that the model may be similar to a Kenwood (Trio)  KW series but it stops there. I have the unit connected to a set of Forte I's and it sounds amazing. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

John

That’s typical of the equipment which Lafayette manufactured in Japan in the early and mid 60s.  I am guessing that it uses 6BM8s in the output stage and may be good for around 10wpc. It would be worth buying a service manual if you plan on keeping it.  You can probably get one from agtannenbaum.com .
