I just copy here what a guest from Melbourne, Australia, has sent us via contact form:

I  was thrilled to 'find' yet another "Philips 389AN" via your website listing!
I thought mine was likely the only one in the world!  Mine is 'alive and well" however (indeed works very well) - and living in Australia!  It was brought here from Northern Ireland in 1961 and before that had ridden the ocean from "Southern Rhodesia" whereupon it was purchased in 1950! This particular unit was sold as the 'radio-audio amplifier' portion mounted within a rather exotic hand-carved  wooden cabinet  'radio-gram' combination.  The 'hand-carved cabinet' was unfortunately discarded in 1968 when I 'scored it' as a 14 year old lad upon its retirement by my late father after he purchased a 'new stereo' for the household. The '389AN' has served me well over the years as a 'ham radio' receiver (having had a BFO added) and indeed was the receiver I used for my first 'CW QSO' in 1981. Considering its 'domestic design limitations' (lack of band-spread and 'wide I.F band-width' - it works sufficiently for communications purposes and in fact most excellently for general short-wave reception.

Unfortunately it seems that we could only produce a picture from a catalog, folder or flier. Also a name plate, which could be from an auction ... 

I don't know how complete or how much changed the set of this guest is, but perhaps we get some inside photos and/or name plate. I thank Aubrey - and will ask him.
