Hi Guys,
It’s been a while! I’ve long given up looking for new radios, but still love the consoles I have.
Basically I’m interested in whether or not any timber Airzone radio (console or bench top) could have everbeen manufactured using any other than a Magnavox speaker, and particularly, if Rola was ever a replacement.

I’m looking at getting a parts radio, but it has some unlikely parts (including GT octals in a 1930’s radio), but most parts look right. I’m mostly interested in the speaker though.
Cheers, Brek.

Airzone did use octals in many of their 1930s radio. The Radiostar was probably the last with UX valves. Yes, would have been Gs, not GTs in all except 1.5V battery valve models.

I've seen Rola and Magnavox speakers in Airzones, both bakelite and timber.
