I have a similar set by Blaupunkt that I restored a few years ago. This set
is probably from the early to mid 60s.
Some of the tubes are a little hard to find but often there are American
versions that will work but have a different number. A good crossover chart
will help if u find u need tubes. The turntable may be designed for 220vac
at or 50hz and not work in the US. The radio chassis will have a voltage
selector for several voltages for the radio and the line frequency wont
matter for the radio. These sets often use selenium rectifiers so be
careful handling them. I understand they can contain poison. Dial cords
can be a problem also and there are sometimes dial cord operated rotating am
loopstick antennas inside as well as other cord operated gadgets. The
speakers are often weird sizes and impedances also. I have found the short
wave sensitivity poor on these sets since they were built for use in Germany
where short wave is local. any more questions email me direct. I am good
in QRZ. WB5OXQ, Jim in Waco.
