Super Cascode Series 21 MC Front Preference Control.

This is a combination 21 inch television and mono-radiogram.  The TV tuned the 10 Australian VHF channels standard at the time and the radiogram tuned the broadcast and one short wave band.

Same as models with the AX20Y4A chassis except uses a different tuner type: 94D110-7. Tuners for both AX20Y4A & AX20Y4B have the same valve line-up

This looks like a normal console television receiver but the speaker grille is the front of a drawer which when opened, reveals the radiogram section.

The choice of an I.F. (video) of 26.75 MHz was controversial, as the official Australian standards stated that 36 MHz be used, with the corresponding spectrum being cleared.  This was even discussed in parliament at the time.  Admiral soon adopted an I.F. of 36 MHz with later production.

Cabinet finishes available in Maple, Walnut & Rosewood.
