The Goblin Time Spot radio is a four valve plus rectifier, covering 3 bands, medium wave, long wave and the broadcast bands in the short wave region. Costing the sum of £24 pounds at the time and
being the first radio that incorporated a clock so that you could pre-set the time for it to come on and turn off.
This is a collectors radio and as far as i know this was the only radio that the British Vacum cleaner and Engineering Co. Ltd of Leatherhead Surrey's only attempt at the radio market . All the
valves have been tested and not one had low emmision reading. All the decoupling capacitors have been replaced as standard, and the IF amplifier at 465khz was re-aligned as were the rf stages
being re-adjusted resulting in the radio being very sensitive on all wave bands . With the single triode output stage supplying a very high output if needed and crisp clear.
The radio also has a tone control adjusted across the primary of the audio output transformer, basic but works very well indeed. The radio in design is very simple compared to other radio's of the
period, hence its ability to still be an everyday radio in the twenty first century with great realiabilty.
The case is in very good condition with no damage to the veneers , the original finish was poor, so the cabinet has been stripped and stained followed by a high finish French polish, see photo
before full assy in high level sunlight.
The control knobs have been cleaned and polished before re-fitting on to the radio. If you are looking for a 1940's period radio with a clock (fully working) and to use every day, this is for
you. Comes complete with a high quality copy of the original user instructions and guarantee card.
