The most popular classic radio availible is the Iconic Bush DAC90A. A five valve radio, AC/DC transportable superhetrodyne receiver which has Medium Wave and Long wave switchable from the side.
These receivers are small in size 9.25 inches height, 7.5 inches depth and 12.75 inches in width and therefore fit comfortably in any modern home.To ensure reliabilty as standard all the
components that would require replacement have been done. The radio had not been used in many years and never serviced, ideal restoration project. The valves all original have been
tested and are like new, perfect emmisions The I.F section and RF sections have been aligned and therefore is very sensistive and responsive. The Bakelite case is very shiny with only very
slight marking on the Bakelite case, apart from that a very fine example with interesting perfect control knobs with no chips. Comes complete with original mains plug and 6 months gurantee
Due to its simple chassis and good design this is a radio you can use and enjoy every day, another added bonus is now the avaliabilty of the original 3.5 Volt dial lamps to improve the tuning
dial though still rather dim. This one as can be seen in the photo is finished in a Walnut stylel (Bakelite) though a plastic variation of Bakelite (Catalin) can be found in
the Ivory version though, these are in fact trade names of the product, but Catlin is more brittle and models are often shown with either cracks or chips to the body, this model is a perfect
As with all these models the power supply is a simple half wave rectifier but works very well. These use a UL41 as an audio output valve, if at times you hear a slight mains hum, often the fault will
be due to a cathode to heater leak, I have found this on many of these valves hence a new replacement valve has been fitted.
This model is in very good condition, the contol knobs are perfect. I haver never quite understood why you see damage to these as often as you do it would be
the last thing to get misuse and comes complete with the original 2 pin plug, including the 12 months guarantee, would make either a great present or why not just treat yourself.
