In brown Bakelite cabinet with white trim. The knobs are on the sides. On the left the on/off/volume control and tone control, on the right the wave length switch and tuning.
With medium wave (170-560 meters), long wave (708-2000 meters) and short wave (16,2-52 meters). The intermediate frequency is 452 kHz.
The glass scale on top of the device is illuminated from below by two pilot lamps (Philips 8045D, 6.3V / 0.32A). The indicator is made of metal. The radio is equipped with a "floating" tuning capacitor. The capacitor is suspended with the aid of a number of thin wires of spring steel. During transport of the radio, the capacitor has to be fixed temporarily with two lock pins, in order to prevent it from being damaged.
A connection for antenna and earth are situated at the back, as well as a connection for a gramophone and an extra loudspeaker.
