Murphy Radio Model A70C From 1939
Shown above is the console version of the A70. The cabinet is no more inspiring than that of the table model, which of course shares the same chassis. The only real difference is that a larger loudspeaker is fitted, and the larger cabinet should make for improved sound quality too. However, the console version of the A70 was getting on for 50% more expensive than its table version equivalent, which must be borne in mind was the bottom of the range chassis. I’d have thought potential buyers would have been better off saving up the last £1.10.0 and purchasing the top of the range A74 special reproduction receiver, which included a large loudspeaker anyway
