Excellent - Number of items: 1 - Including: Tube radio - Refurbished

As far as brand and diagram are concerned, no data can be found of this colourful French radio. This model is electronically similar to many similar models from other French manufacturers of the time (Reela, Sonneclair, Océanic, Schneider, Le Régional, Familial, Ducretet-Thomson, etc...).
Cabinet completely stripped, repainted and protected with transparent high gloss lacquer.
The deteriorated plastic decorative strips were replaced by new brass-coloured PVC strips.
Except for the back wall, the radio is completely original and an FM receiver has been added for daily listening pleasure.
All non-mica/ceramic capacitors were replaced.
2 added lights (130V-22mA) provide extra illumination of the plastic front
The reception on LW, MW, SW and SW spread band (Bande Etaléé) is good to very good with long (outdoor) antenna and in a completely interference-free environment.
Very good FM playback (87.5-108MHz) with built-in antenna via the record player input (switchable on the rear connection).
Connections for record player (AUX) and additional speaker (5-8 ohms) with banana plugs.
Tubes: EZ80-EL84-EBF80-EBF80-ECH81-EM34-PC86 (added for FM receiver adjustment)
Output power: 4.5 watts
