G.E.C. BC 5060 - The
This twin speaker all-wave super-het with
three pre-set stations, has really remarkable performance.
With high consistent sensitivity, delayed
AVC and simple 'piano-key' controls the BC 5060 gives a grand performance
with extreme ease. The finely grained light walnut cabinet houses
special low frequency circuits incorporating tone correction, and twin
high fidelity loudspeakers help to produce a remarkable quality of
reproduction. Separate quality control allows individual
acoustic balance adjustment. There is provision for connecting a
gramophone pick-up, and an external speaker; the latter controlled by an
edge-operated switch, as is the tone. Seven keys cover selection of
three pre-selected stations. Slow-motion fly-wheel assisted tuning
for accuracy, and a large, clear floodlit station name dial in
distinguishable colours. Five valves; AC mains 200-250 volts, 40-100
