hinged lid. Made by
Péricaud, Paris. This is the first Péricaud model with
internal tubes. Valves: detector, h.f. valve and 2 l.f.
valves. The filament rheostat (8 ohms) is not suitable for bright emitters.
The radio plays well with dull emitters, in this case Spheria valves (A406 compatible).
All voltages, the antenna, a frame antenna, headphones
and loudspeaker can be connected at the front.
Listen to "Marquita"
from the show "Bonjour Paris", sung by the
French singer Saint Granier with orchestra, recorded in
