Philips BX 316U/10

Dual Wave band

Whilst this is a fairly common form factor for 1950s Philips sets, it apears to have been imported from the Netherlands.

I have a number of Philips 138 Mistral Four radio’s in various colours, this is the first of the BX series.

It is a dual band, Broadcast and Short Wave, it also features a tone control. The cabinet is a rich walnut.

This set was purchased in the Adelaide sale of May 2021.

The radio sounds deep and rich, unlike the local 138’s. However, it will need some work as after a couple of hours it gets to hot to touch.
