Pacific Radio Ltd stunning art deco dual-wave console from 1934

Valve Lineup: 6D6, 6A7, 6D6, 6B7, 42, 80

I.F. Frequency: 256kc/s

Chassis Notes: 6-valve chassis built by RCNZ, near-standard 'baking pan' design, with dark metallic gold paint rather than the usual cadmium plating. Also notable square 'tabs' on the corners of the chassis rather than the usual rounded corners. First Pacific model with 'aero' dial. Almost identical to Courtenay 108 circuitry (which appears to be identical, except for 2.5V valves).

All documented models using the same chassis
