What's new?

Reel To reel tape machines

Reel to Reel recorders like vinyl in records are here to stay.

The period tape machines like Ferrograph were hand built to last and were built  in the UK, just like the classic radio's of the same period use off the shelf components . With that classic valve sound and mechanical design whats not to like. Every instutution had them BBC, schools, armed forces and if you were lucky the private owner to .With the correct servicing some 50 years later they are  as good as the day they left the factory

 

Retro with Classic designs are now very popular. There are a number of client's who collect from a certain decade, this can be for personal interest or as props in television or film, through to interior design. At times we are asked to supply good looking models but are not fully functional. If there is a particular period radio you require please contact me to your specific needs so we c

an do the hard work for you.

Due to the range and number of Hacker radios in stock I have now added another page for you to look at.

Hacker RP75MB (Boxed) Serial no 06335 1975 SOLD

This Super Sovereign RP75 MB serial number 06335 is the larger and enhanced version of the RP72 Super Sovereign III this Multi-band receiver offer's many features including seperate AM and FM tuning drives band spread and ATU for the short waves and mains operation. For the Hacker Enthusiast this is the most sought after of the Hacker range due to its high cost and low estimated production with its original box. In 1975 this model cost £90 quite an investment

SW1 9.10 to 28 Mh,

SW2 3.37 to 10.90 Mhz with band spread

Medium and Long Wave reception

VHF with ISM (Interstage Muting) plus AFC

Tuning meter and of course pure quality up to 1.5 Watts from the high spec audio amplifier and complimented with the large elliptical loud speaker.

 

Condition overall is very good with only slight signs of use, the sticker on the Teak left hand side has been left to ensure no damage or possible colour change if removed. This radio is rare due to the fact that the original Hacker box is still present, with the correct serial number on the box to match. The radio was found as a house clearance boxed in a cupboard, so I can only guess by its condition that it was put away some years ago.

The radio has been tested , checked and did not need any calibrating, the battery holder is like new .Comes complete with mains lead and 1 years gurantee

Hacker RP17 Serial no 12697

The Hacker RP17 was first produced in 1962, and due to its small size fitted perfectly to the portable market, This model was first fitted with PP7 batteries but within 2 years the A version replaced this with a slightly larger cabinet to allow the standard PP9's as fitted on there over models at the time. The radio serial number 12697 , has had the audio board re-built with just one I.F transistor requiring replacement, the R.F and I.F stages re-aligned. The condition of the cabinet is very good, the handle is excellent and the chrome speaker grill is in perfect  condition as well.

This still has the original PP7 battery connections fitted, though on request I can change these for PP3's.

There is no dis-colouration on the dial plate, which often happens. The radio offeres Medium and Longwave reception with that standard loud Hacker sound. This is a perfect early 60's classic radio offered with 1 years gurantee. Batteries are avalible

Hacker RP10 (1963) Serial no 52167

 

 

A near perfect example in the third and final series of the RP10 range . This radio must have been purchased and was put away the only wear is very slight to the handle.  The model started in 1960 and by 1962 the chassis was completely different using a single circuit board, with the then more sensitive AF series of transistors ( we know the story) and by 1963 was the introduction of the vented back, familar on all later models and this final model has outer Mini-Herald type tuning knobs with the inner ones pointer types. The Ascot Grey with Black sides is in first class condition, with no signs of wear to the handle. best one I have ever seen. Its all original !.

Wavebands Long Wave and Medium Wave, very sensitive with audio output of max 1Watt delivered by a 8 by 5 inch Loudspeaker. Comes complete with the carrying case designed by Hacker for the RP10 purchased at the same time the radio was bought, hence fantastic condition, with batterys and 1 years gurantee.

Medium and Long Wave reception

VHF with ISM (Interstage Muting) plus AFC

Tuning meter and of course pure quality up to 1.5 Watts from the high spec audio amplifier and complimented with the large elliptical loud speaker. The photo's were taken in daylight so you can get a better overall impression in natural light, rather than using flash in the workshops.

 

Condition overall is fine, with only slight wear to the Teak side peices and to the tuning dial by the shortwave 10 metre scale, again only slight , as can be seen on the photo's, but overall impression is very very good. The chassis is perfect and the battery holder is like new

The radio has been re-calibrated and the VHF tuner re-aligned via spectrum analizer, the price reflects the very slight wear to the top tuning dial.

Hacker SP-80 Stereo dated 13th October 1976 (SOLD)

A rare find , I have only had one in the last few years. These are a point of interest for a number of reasons. It was the only true portable stereo receiver Hacker produced in the last fews years of production. Of course the quality of the build by now was dissapointing as like their other models by now, this was due to cheap imports and trying to keep afloat.

This model was produced at Maidenhead factory just before Hacker got into financial trouble just over a year later.

Sound wise this one is quite dynamic and the issues relating to vibration of the case and poor sound quality on later models is not apparent. The stereo is subtle and this has been commented with other owners .

The controls ie volume, base treble and balance work perfectly, again another issue often reported on these models.

It has had a replacement aerial fitted and in the past someone has tried to re-fit the speaker grills ( not very well) I have cleaned them up and re-fitted them as they should be, though there are some marking to the cloth at the bottom. The screw that holds the bottom tray to the battery box has snapped, though fitting a Din plug to the side of it resolves this. The battery holder is perfect.

Overall impression is very good and will look good in any Hacker enthusiast's home .So if you are looking for the rare and Hackers last attempt to dominate the market , this is it.

As to values a mint version of one of these would be in the range of £500
