This is probably Australia’s most elaborate commercial radio. Advertised in the “Sunday Herald”(NSW), July 24, 1949 and displayed at the 1949 Sydney Royal Show. It comprises separate AM and FM tuners feeding into a common audio amplifier. The AM tuner has variable selectivity and makes extensive use of the EF50 valve. AFC is also provided. It has a single short wave band. The audio amplifier incorporates a number of preliminary stages which feed into push-pull 6V6GT valves and then into parallel 807’s. The audio section can be switched to either radio tuner, from a gramophone pickup or a crystal microphone. Output can be fed to the speaker or to a crystal cutting head for recording purposes. The royal show price was Aus£577/10/-
