|NOTES|| This large set must have been a top of the range set in its day. There
are seperate bass and treble controls, unusual in itself, but in addition
has switch settings for "music" and "speech".
A bar graph style "magig eye" tuning indicator is discretely placed at the left hand site of the tuning dial.
The chassis uses a mixture of discrete wiring and a printed circuit board. The chassis also has a couple of extra cut-outs for a couple more valves, perhaps there were plans for a version with a push-pull output stage. But given that there is acres of space on the chassis I'm at a loss to explain why the main smoothing electrolytic is at the opposite end of the chassis to the HT rectifier valve !
The set has seperate internal aeriels for VHF and LW/MW, the latter being a ferrite rod fitted to a wheel allowing the aerial to be rotated.
|SERVICE DATA||I have an electronic copy of the "Trader" service sheet 1567.|
|CURRENT STATE||The front white paint is a bit chipped from the knocks recieved whilst hibernating in a garden shed, but the insides are very clean and rust free (the picture below is as found) and the bakelite undamaged.|
|WHERE FOUND||A freebie from "Bill".|
