Murphy Radio Model A48 From 1938
With volume and tone, wavelength and tuning controls concentrically mounted as pairs on the front, the A48 cabinet is maybe not as easy on the eye as the A46, a comment that might also be applied to the next set up the 1938 range, the A50, with its smoked mirror glass tuning surround. Notice that the chassis to the A48 is mounted in the top half of the cabinet, with the speaker located beneath it. Although not too clear from the compressed photographs above, it is encouraging that both chassis are deeply coated in dust (about 1/4 inch in both cases). This suggests that the sets have not been "messed about with" by inexperienced restorers. Valve line-up is AC/TH1, AC/VP2, HL41DD, AC5/PEN, UU4.
