In dark brown
("walnut") Bakelite cabinet with gold coloured
metal grille. This was the best selling valve radio in Great Britain in
the fifties. The radio was also available in a cream
coloured Bakelite cabinet at extra cost. It is a rework
of the earlier DAC90, that used octal valves. The low serial number,
the type of knobs, and the grey
dropper, that was replaced by a green one
in later models, indicate that this is an early version.
The radio has a built-in frame aerial. It was introduced
in February 1950. The design is by Frank Middleditch.
