Murphy Radio Model A74 From 1939
Shown above is the Murphy A74. This receiver was positioned in the 1939 range as the special reproduction model. The cabinet is indeed very large, and a 10” loudspeaker is provided. Drum tuning is again included, but to my mind the cabinet is not as impressive as the A50 special reproduction receiver from a year earlier. The output valve has moved on from the AC4/PEN seen in the A50 to the PEN45 which had recently been released by Mazda. This was a very good valve, though of slightly lower output power than the AC4/PEN. Again the receiver was available with the optional pushbutton unit or remote control, though neither are fitted in this example. Valve line-up is TH41, VP41, VP41, HL42DD, ME41, PEN45, UU6.
