The CN435 'Lady Catherine' is electrically
identical to the CN434 already mentioned - apart from 3 or 4 minor
component value differences. As always, point-to-point wiring is the
norm on a steel chassis. the 5" speaker and wooden case give a
reasonable tone despite the audio stage being a single DL96 - good only
for 200mW at 85V.
The radio was offered, apparently, in
two colour schemes - both shown here. The more common colours seem to
have been the pinkish-red and cream, as in the top photo. However, one
may wonder if the steel-grey and dark blue scheme (as shown in the
lower photo) was Vidor's attempt to market the radio to men!
There is no
switch as the lid stay operates a switch inside the case, instead of
making a 'warning tone' as most other Vidors did.
