High impedance loudspeaker
In veneered wood cabinet with ebonised wood ornament, black bottom plate and ball feet. Made by Sarcos, Fabriek van Luidsprekers (later: Fabriek van Radio-Onderdeelen en luidsprekers), 380, Singel, Amsterdam.
Although the text "Made in Holland" on the set screw at the rear, and advertising texts in the trade magazines indicate that Sarcos speakers are entirely made and developed in The Netherlands, the driver unit seems very similar to a product of the German factory Grawor.
The speaker has a diameter of 30 cm. The cone is not supported at the edge.
