The Roberts R600 was introduced in 1968 at a cost of £26-10-0. This is a later version with the striped front grille. It has a turntable on its base to aid LW and MW reception with an internal ferrite rod antenna and a telescopic aerial for VHF FM use. There is a socket for headphones, a car aerial socket and a power socket. The case is in great condition for its age and is covered in blue leather-cloth. The carry strap is as good as they get and mint condition. The sides are solid teak.

I can restore to order for you a lovely Roberts R600. I have a few older styles left in black.
The restoration will comprise of the following:
Mullard LP1171 module full overhaul. All the old AF11x series transistors will be replaced with new equivalent transistors and replacement electrolytic capacitors will be fitted. All the electrolytic capacitors will be changed throughout the radio. Volume pot cleaned. Switchbank cleaned. The headphone socket which is a known issue with these radios and will be stripped and cleaned. Dial plate extensively polished and looking like new. Teak side panels stripped and refinished with Danish oil. Quiescent current set to manufacturers specification.
This radio will be tested and working well on all bands with awesome FM performance. Also picking up lots of stations on LW and MW.
Case size is 11 1/4″w x 6 1/8″h x 3 1/2″d.

All the internals are originals except for the transistors and electrolytic capacitors in the module and the electrolytic capacitors in the rest of the radio which have been replaced with higher specification parts.
You will need a PP9 battery which is still readily available online and from Wilkinson stores for a few pounds. This is not supplied with the radio.
I will also include in the sale printed copies of the trader sheet with service data, a Roberts sales brochure from 1968 and an A3 colour double sided print of my own ERT service sheet scanned in better resolution than you will find anywhere on the internet.
I have described this radio in detail but please be aware that this is a vintage item so it will show signs of use in keeping with its age.
This radio will come with a 30 day money back guarantee. The buyer will be responsible for return postage and refund is subject to an inspection to ensure the radio has not been tampered with.
**Please note that postage is to UK mainland only. Please contact for postage costs outside of this area. Thanks**
