Return to The Portable Collection
|Ferranti sets are heavy - very
heavy. The 945 is no exception. In common with the 815 it
has external aerial and earth sockets and is of orthodox
design. It's interesting feature is the push-pull output
stage which, despite the puny output of the DL96, gives a
warm and rich tone - large wooden cabinet and oversized
speaker add to this effect.
I find it interesting that Ferranti were using solid-state rectifiers in the early 1950's when most radio manufacturers stuck with the hollow-state tube rectifier right up to the end.
