|Condition||Good, top of cabinet a little dull, the usual fire damage to the back. See the Bush DAC90 repairs page for details.|
|Dimensions||12" x 9" x 7" (300 x 225 x 175mm)|
|Comments||The Bush DAC90 is a standard post-war 4
valve plus rectifier design, using octal series valves in
a Bakelite cabinet. The set has a couple of inherent
design faults, the first being the proximity of the mains
dropper resistor (the set has an AC/DC or universal power
supply), to the (cardboard) back panel - the backs of
these sets are almost always burnt, revealing the
connections to the dropper, which carry live mains! The
second fault concerns the tuning control and aerial - the
set has a frame aerial mounted on the inside side of the
cabinet, and the tuning control protrudes through this,
unfortunatly, placing your hand on the control alters the
characteristics of the aerial, and detunes the set, or
more to the point, when you tune the set in, removing
your hand alters the tuning......... this was cured in
the later DAC90A sets.
The set pictured is not in my collection, but is one that I have recently repaired.
