What Have I got here? 3x a charm

my 3rd attempt to post these. This time I created a flickr album. My good friend is moving and asked me to sell his Radolek Sound Amplifier and 5721 tube amp chassis. I don't know what they are, worth, or who would be interested, but any feedback from you guys is always appreciated.

BTW, finally began recording with the 200s, and its a beast!!! can't wait to upload to soundcloud for ya'all.

Thanks in advance,
Smooth

Looks like some cool old stuff, but not exactly Sunn related, so I'm just gonna move this to General Discussion...
As always; if it's being offered for sale it needs a price and to be in the classified section. My suggestion would be to list them on eBay and get what they are worth, but regardless it needs a price of some sort to stay up here.

Thanks Ed,

I was actually more interested in finding out what these are.

The Radiolek reminds me of a couple of 50's era Dukane 6V6 amps that I bought from a guy a few years ago. He got them and a round crystal EV microphone from an elementary school demolition project, they are 8 ohm, 12 ohm, and 70V output taps, and were used for the classroom public address system; all of 10 watts each. I don't know, but based on similar input topography and chicken heads my gut says the Radiolek was meant for a similar application.

The chassis amp is a total mystery to me, looks like one 6V6 and a couple of vacuum diodes maybe(?), and a honkin' big transformer along with an extremely small tranny, or maybe a choke?
