Murphy Radio Model A122 From 1947
1947 saw Murphy introduce a full range of sets for the first time since WW2. Receivers in the 1947 range included mains portables, table receivers with differing features (and prices) including facilities such as “Special Shortwave” plus the improved sound quality available from the latest “Baffle” set introduced. The A122 Baffle receiver is above left, and the side view (below left) again shows the baffle element of the cabinet. The metal back used in the A104 the previous year has been replaced by the more usual card back, and the optical short wave system is no longer provided. Listeners who were short wave enthusiasts would now be referred to the TA92 or TU92 receivers that included enhanced short wave performance. Removal of the enhanced short wave tuning on the A122 allowed Murphy to reduce the price to £22.0.0 +pt (as against £25.0.0 +pt for the A104) at a time of generally rising prices. Valve line-up consisted of: TH41, VP41, HL41DD, PEN45, UU6.
