This amp was originally designed for the use of germanium TO-3 power transistors, as you can see in this model there holes drilled
on the heatsink for the use of plastic silicon power transistors, something you see very often in this kind of designs.
You may replace some diodes, capacitors and resistors in the power supply and power rail.
After modification this amp is capable of producing 2x 12 Watts RMS.
