About this item

This radio which was not functioning when we received it has recently undergone a conversion as an active speaker and has been modified for use as a Bluetooth speaker. This allows you to use the radio to listen to music or stream digital radio via an iPhone, iPad, PC or any Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or MP3 player. Pair it with your phone and away you go!
The case is in good vintage condition with a couple of nicks to the fabric finish. No damage to the Bakelite. The radio has been cleaned inside and out, and has been fully polished to bring out the best in its natural beauty.

We have used a modern amplifier and Bluetooth combination which has been connected to the original speaker this helps give the radio it's unique and original mellow tone. The original volume knob still adjusts the volume for the unit, and the on/off works as it should.

By replacing the valve amplifier inside this unit, we believe this radio has been given a new lease of life, and is now safe and usable in a modern home, with no worries about overheating or blowing valves, this unit can be left on all day without worry or constant replacement of consumable parts. When we received this radio it was incomplete and non functioning and would have probably been destined for the recycling centre.

To ensure safety, the radio is now powered by an external transformer, meaning no high voltage electrical connections are inside the radio, only low voltage power, similar to that of a battery is inside the unit. The external transformer has been fully PAT safety tested prior to shipment. The radio has been tested for a minimum of 24 Hours as part of our quality control process and only after it has passed this and other tests will we allow it to be sold.
