Hi guys I was lucky enough to buy two of these with all the rare bits still intact. They have the large pop up dials with the bakelite ends that often have the bulb covers missing but I have them intact. One of the sets has a ECH35 which I was lucky enough to purchase a box of NOS valves which had three of them in it plus two NOS EM34s. The other set has all miniature valves.
I also have two spare cases and chassis.

One of them is a model 114 with a beaufitful piano finish. And the other is a 114K.

You're lucky to have the top dial glass. They usually fall out, get lost & broken, or the dial markings come off.

Robbert these sets are a pleasure to work on as well. Very well designed, unlike the Eumig.

Got a question . Both these sets have phono inputs. I am thinking about connecting a RCA socket so I can easily connect a CD player. I will piggy back off the tags on the phono jacks inside the chassis but where does the inner pin connect and the outer. I'm sure it's easy but just asking.

Beware: You need to examine the input circuit, especially of an early Philips. Some of these used Magnetic pickups which were not grounded (and there is one here).

Should the input be grounded, that is liable to short out either the bias of the inputting valve, or the back bias of the entire set.

Also remember that the Vintage radio is Monoraul and the CD player is stereo. Rarely do they quote the impedances of any of the outputs on the modern stuff, but you can actually use audio transformers to recombine, whilst providing DC isolation.

Spent some time looking at all the spares I have for these and I am confident I can restore 3 out the four that I have. One is going to a friend but two will stay with me .

I completed the model 114. I have sent some photos to Brad. It needs a little balsa wood in the grill and getting a new dial made.
