FOC to anybody who can collect it.
Ekco model A23 complete and in nice condition, assumed not working as mains lead has been cut of.

Re: Ekco A23
A very nice radio - of all those I have restored I think the A23 has the best sound. A bit big, and I find the styling odd after the quite sleek Ekco A22!

Re: Ekco A23
I would second Ian's comments.
Anyoner considering this set will be well pleased with the sound once a restoration is completed.

Re: Ekco A23
I'd be more than happy to try to restore this but sadly too far away. If you would be willing to send it to me with UPS I'll be happy to contribute 20 towards p&p which should more than cover it. Let me know via pm.

It would need very good packing, a heavy chassis in a large Bakelite cabinet.

Re: Ekco A23
Lovely radio but the Bakelite moulding is quite thin for such a large heavy radio, it needs to be handled with care!

Re: Ekco A23
Probably best not to chance it in the post then.

Re: Ekco A23
Thanks all for your comments on the A23. They are easy sets to restore, and are well worth the effort. Not the best looking set I have to say, but its main problem is that its not round!

I will not risk sending it by any carrier, as the cabinet would end up like a jigsaw puzzle.

Gabe001 you have a PM.

Re: Ekco A23
If it is still available I have someone that lives close to you that could pick it up and bring it to Cornwall for me.

Re: Ekco A23
Hi Dennis M.
Yes it is still available, if you are still interested, please let me know and I will PM you with my contact details.
I forgot to mention that it will come with a complete spare chassis, which came out of a working set with a broken cabinet.
