BBC AM8/6 Loudspeaker Amplifier, 1963. 30 watt mono valve amplifier (KT88 outputs) with integrated equaliser - to feed 25-ohm loudspeaker. A mains-operated loudspeaker amplifier giving an output of 30 watts for a voltage input level of -18 dB.

The AM8/6 has been designed primarily for use with the suspended loudspeaker LS5/2 in conditions where the 15-watt output of the AM8/4 is in adequate. The AM8/6 normally contains an equaliser suitable for use with the LS5/2, but different equalisers can be fitted if the amplifier is used to feed other types of 25-ohm loudspeakers.
