Can anyone verify if this is what’s known as the "Conway" model?
It has the DC5 chassis (5 tube battery operated TRF), but no model info for the cabinet. From what I’ve read, the DC5 came in one of two cabinets:
– The Hastings, which I think was a table top model with external speaker,
– The Conway, which I think is this one, a console with built-in speaker.
On doing a bit more research, I realize that this is not a DC5; it’s a C5, a year older than the DC5. Comparing the C5 and DC5 schematics, confirmed it. I was confused by the serial number which begins with "DC5…", but the escutcheon has "C5" engraved on it, which I would have noticed sooner if I’d been paying proper attention.
So, this would simply be known as a C5 Console (as opposed to the C5 Compact, which was a table model).
