Vintage Bluetooth Speaker with a difference......(Civilian Wartime Radio)

A genuine Wartime Civilian Receiver retro fitted with a modern STEREO speaker, amplifier and Bluetooth receiver providing a full 30w of power.

Just plug it in with the supplied power supply and send your sounds direct from your iPod, Tablet or other device.

These sets built during the materials shortages of World War 2. The Government initiated a plan for a simple receiver of a single standard design in 1943, the design itself being undertaken by Dr. G. D. Reynolds of Murphy Radio Ltd. During the War there was a dire shortage of new receivers so despite the basic nature of this set it was eagerly snapped up by the public with over 175,000 of the mains sets being sold in the first year.

Both the price and conditions of supply were rigidly set by the Wireless Receiving Sets (Control of Supply) order, which had come in to operation of the 1st July 1944. This specifically applied to the Civilian Receiver and the order was not revoked until July 1947, so presumably the sets were still in production at that time ?

Perfect for your 1940's themed House or Bunker!!

VERY Good example of this radio and much sought after, even without conversion.

The original volume control works as your Bluetooth volume.

A Mini Jack Aux input is fitted to the rear for use with non-Bluetooth devices.
