Which HMV Models?

Post by Michael Watterson » Mon May 26, 2014 8:12 pm

I uploaded this from a DVD and Film donated to Radiomuseum



Any idea what the featured models at end are?

Any suggestions for a Sound Track (that won't have copyright issues. I have some 1930s Jazz 78's)
Commentary?

Maybe.
One is like a 340?

I just uploaded some screen grabs here

You can comment here. I'm not sure if some are not the same model. I think I got them all! They are shown very briefly.

With some help from a Geoffrey Dixon-Nuttall article long ago in The Radiophile (no.15, Easter 1988), the table model in the end sequence is indeed a 340 - early version, as a local/distant switch beneath the tuning knob was later combined with the knob as a push-pull action.

The fairly compact auto radiogram with five bars across the 'speaker aperture is a 570 or 570A, I'm harbouring one here.

Table model with four knobs, 441, and its console version the 444. I just have the Marconi versions of each (264 and 297). I'd guess the single play radiogram, second still down, may be the 541 using the same chassis again.

The large radiogram with elaborate figuring looks like an 800, so that just leaves the one with vertical grille bars, perhaps a 580.

As usual Paul you are a Star!

Though I can't find any info on a 580
