NOTES Set with optional speaker [5K]A lovely piece of ancient bakelite, dating from the age when external speakers were the norm. However Ekco also produced a suitable loudspeaker, the 'Ekcoil' Model LS2, that was available as an option. An example is illustrated in the picture opposite kindly donated by the Vintage Radio Times website.

Hum Label [12K]
The set uses directly heated valves and is powered from AC mains. This usually requires a balancing control used to minimise the hum that this combination generally produces.
SERVICE DATA Nope :-(
CURRENT STATE Beautiful bakelite case even if the chassis has seen some rust.
WHERE FOUND July 2001 auction at Sambrook for 180 (eek!). Consolation prize for having missed out on a number of lots including a lovely Ferranti Nova :-(
