Superheterodyne radio
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.
