Roberts R77 1957 SOLD
The Roberts R77 was the first of the Roberts radios to use a PCB and the binocular style coach-hide leather carring case would blend into the middle conservative market it was intended for. The release date was May 1957 and marketed at £13 4s 7d, within a couple of years due to inflation the price had risen by over 30% £18 17s 0d. The radio offeres MW and LW reception and employs a ferrite rod internal aerial. 4 valves are used and runs from B126 90 Volt HT battery and AD35 1.5 Volt battery's are supplied ready to go. The sensitivity and volume are excellent, and condition again is very good with little wear, the top Ivory colour tuning plate and on/off and tuning knobs are perfect with no wear.
These radio's are very sought after and good examples are getting hard to locate and i'm sure from memory that the design and prototype was first shown to the Queen back in 1956, and hence the design appealing to the sportsman and countrymen . Comes complete with batteries and 1 years gurantee
