December 1951 is stunningly different from the norm - but only when you
open it. Light finished interior with Ikea-type lines was way ahead
of it's time; I wonder if it ever sold!
with the double-door cabinet
The RGA61 is a new addition to the Pilot
range. Its radio provides excellent reception on short, medium and
long waves with superb reproduction and tone from its 10in. speaker.
A Garrard changer which is mounted in a sliding drawer deals with 8in.,
10in. or 12in. records, wear being reduced by a lightweight, high fidelity
pick-up. A tone correcting stage enhances the production from
records. The set is contained in a double-door cabinet in figured
walnut with a sycamore interior and has
ample storage space for records. This beautifully designed cabinet
will blend well with any surroundings and has that unobtrusive air of
excellence only to be found in products of the highest quality and finish.
