Beau Decca

An interesting radiogram, coming onto the market during 1947. These radiograms were very well made, having separate amplifier / PSU and radio sections. For those that could not afford the radio section (some 35 guineas was a probably 10 or more weeks wages) the set could be sold with this section removed, leaving just the deck and amplifier. The boasts a powerful 5 watts via two PX4 triode valves, driving three 8″ speakers mounted on a curved baffle with specially shapes wooden louvers deflecting the sound evenly around the room. Decca came up with a wide range pickup which, with a good stylus, is capable of excellent results. This coupled with a very good radio section design and the unusual speaker system, the sound quality produced can better most sets that were produced well into the ’60s.
