Utlra R906 Twin de-lux 1953 (SOLD)
This radio in near perfect condition is a fine example of the Coronation Twin, because the radio was released in the same year as the coronation of Queen Elisabeth II. This radio was offered in either snake skin (imitation) as pictured or there was also a dark version with imitation crocodile leather, as yet not seen one of those.
The radio has two sliding doors to the front allowing protection when either moving the radio around or when again a selected station and volume have been adjusted allowing the doors to be closed preventing changes happening.
It is a mains (original plug and lead supplied) or battery powered valve portable receiver with medium wave (190 - 550 metres) and Long wave (1160 - 2000 metres) .
The batteries not supplied though if requested can be provided are Ever Ready AD39 7.5 Volt LT and B129 85 Volt HT as this is supplied with its original mains lead it was felt that this would be used more in the home than outside.
The audio output from the 5 inch loud speaker gives more than needed power IP11 pentode output valve and with a good sensitivity works very well indeed.
The condition is first class with the original rear lower cover still in place for the battery compartment and Ultra buit these to a good standard with the the aerial built into the rear door designed with a high Q loading coil this gives improved selectivity and reduction in static noise that works even in the workshop.
The radio is offered complete with 1 years warranty and would suite either a gentleman or the lady of the house, i know about the latter as my wife is giving hints that she would like it, "christmas is on it's way".
