Repost of a rare UK find in Canada

Something funny happend on the way to a television set!. I was on the way to a job site in Armstrong B.C. and to a antique shop that had a old admiral tv waiting for me. Falkland is a small town with a collectable boutique shop on the hyway for some reason i decided to stop and have a look and soon was ready to leave, uninspired by some unattractive tabletop radios. before making it to the door a bug eyed lady looking like Kathy Bates from the movie Missery stopped me and insisted that i buy a radio that was hidden in the office. I really was not intrested but she was persistant and yes it is a console with a lovely cabinet. My offer of $150.00 CAD. was excepted and i was on my way. Little did i know what i drove off with and was to be educated as i reserched this dynatron product.

This working rare find remained intact amoung the oblivious

This phono had no usage as it's 50 cycle synchronous motor would
run faster on our 60 cycle household current

Tuning MW and SW stations on this working radio was quite enjoyable

The money shot, These valves have fetched 200+ Pounds apiece!

Rich sound and luxurious cabinetry worthy of a bold statement
