    This radio, built around 1957, looks very modern, due to its sharp corners and to the light colours. Its huge cabinet, the plenty of keys and knobs, the massive brass grid over the speakers, all talk of a top radio. Great care is given to the audio section, with alternate tone controls and tone register keys, 3-D sound key and the impressive speaker system: two large elliptical wide band and a small conical tweeter on the front panel, plus two fluted radiators on each side, feeded by a single horn tweeter driver. Four speakers driven by a mere EL84, 4 watt output audio stage! Other features are quite common in German radios of the period. Quite unusual is the magic eye saving key button, which switches off the magic eye when not needed for tuning. Tubes: ECC85, ECH81, EF89, EABC80, EL84, EM34, plus the selenium bridge B250C75.

    The radio, found in Germany, was in fair cosmetic state, but required the substitution of one elliptic speaker. Today it looks and works great, with an impressive sound in FM.

    The two large elliptical speakers measure 25 x 15 cm. The right speaker, which carries a code printed on its cage, was replaced with a substitute one of the same type. Top in the middle is the horn driver unit which feeds the two fluted radiators. Note that the speakers are all driven by a single EL84 output tube.

    Key features:

     Two tuning dials, for AM and for FM, with single knob

     Three tone register keys

     Key switch for magic eye

     Four speakers; the horn tweeter drives two fluted radiators for 3D sound

     Near mint condition

     Top sound!
