This is a Bush AC41 vintage valve radio which has been converted to Bluetooth. Only £175.00 with free postage to the U.K. mainland. Watch the video here. SOLD
This iconic vintage valve radio was manufactured by Bush, circa 1954. The lovely wooden cabinet, knobs, dial glass and back panel are in good condition, considering its age.
Most of the radios that come our way can be restored to their former glory. However, the original valve circuitry in this one had seen better days. So, the only option was to add Bluetooth technology to give it a new lease of life. It now works as a Bluetooth speaker, not a valve radio.
Using the converted radio is simplicity itself. Switch the unit on. Then, on your iPhone, iPad or other device, switch on Bluetooth, connect to the speaker and listen to your favourite music or internet radio station. Simplicity is the essence of all our converted radio. Apart from the volume on/off control, there are no buttons or switches to complicate things.
Our Bluetooth conversions work with Amazon Echo. ‘Alexa, connect my speaker!‘
The original volume, on-off knob has been retained and now switches the Bluetooth power on or off and controls the speaker volume. The other three controls no longer function. The unit requires a 5 Volt phone charger type power supply which is NOT supplied. These chargers are very common and most people have two or three at home.
As with all our our Bluetooth conversions, our aim is to retain that authentic vintage radio sound. We do this by utilising the original loud speaker. If you’re looking for a drum and bass boom box, then this radio isn’t for you.
