This Radio Rentals speaker would originally have been an extension speaker for a vintage radio, to allow you to have stereo sound or more than one music source in your house. The speaker which was no longer functioning has recently undergone a conversion to an active speaker and has been modified for use as a Bluetooth speaker. This allows you to use the radio to listen to music or stream digital radio via an iPhone, iPad, PC or any Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or MP3 player. Pair it with your phone and away you go!

This speaker is in cream Bakelite with a grill to the front. The casing and original knob is in very good condition with no cracks to the Bakelite. The speaker has been cleaned inside and out, and the Bakelite has been fully polished to bring out the best in its natural beauty. Please see photos and read the full description for condition report. If you need more pictures or further information please ask.

The speaker had been converted using a modern amplifier connected to the original speaker which helps give the original mellow tone. The original volume knob still adjusts the volume for the unit, and is also the on/off switch. This speaker has been given a new lease of life, and is now safe and usable in a modern home, with no worries about overheating, this unit can be left on all day without worry or constant replacement of consumable parts.

To ensure safety, the speaker is now powered by an external transformer, meaning no high voltage electrical connections are inside, only low voltage power, similar to that of a battery is inside the unit. The external transformer has been fully PAT safety tested prior to shipment.

The speaker has been tested for a minimum of 24 Hours as part of our quality control process and only after it has passed this and other tests will we allow it to be sold.
