Inductive three-valve battery receiver
In dark brown stained oak cabinet with ebonite front and top.
On the top panel are the three coils (the front and rear ones are movable) and the three tubes. The connections and knobs from left to right: an antenna and earth bus, the tuning knob with fine tuning, a potentiometer for setting the detector, a rheostat for the filament current and a connection for a loudspeaker or headphones.
At the rear there are seven connections to which the different voltages (accumulator, two anode voltages and two negative grid voltages) can be connected.
The receiver can also be used for receiving short wave (then called ultra short wave). Philips started in 1927 with broadcasts for the former Dutch East Indies via the Phohi (Philips Omroep Holland-IndiŽ).
The originals price was f 65,- (including 8 coils). Complete with three valves, a Tefag Cornet loudspeaker, batteries and an accumulator the price was f 125,-.
