GATES M5133 GATESWAY Tube audio control console.

Manual (IB2007) date of Feb 9, 1956.  This vintage uses the 5879 preamp tubes in mic preamplifiers and the program amp input stage.

This early GATESWAY had a rounded meter opening on the front panel and used a 3 position outboard panel and shelf assembly for three plug in modules.  The consoles of this era that I own are green with a white taper centered at the VU meter.

The plug in modules are:
MON4 M4175 Monitor Amplifier 
PWR3 M5000 regulated power supply 
PWR10 M4453 bias supply.  

Price includes documentation for all that is listed above 24.95 M5133

This "B" version uses a rackmount chassis with the swing down front panel that houses  the monitor amp,  relays and power supply most of which is on a printed circuit board. This deck is numbered M5548F.

GATES M5133C GATESWAY Tube Audio Control Console.

Manual (IB888) Printed in late 1960's. The only differences that can be seen between the "B" version and the "C" version is that the manual itself looks more modern, the instruction book number is the same (IB888) and the paint scheme is a bit different, the "C" version is a lighter gray.  Oh and the rectifier tube is a 5AR4 instead of 5V4 in some C versions.  There may be other differences that I have yet to discover, Please email if you know of any.
