Philco model 48-700 ca: *1947

Philco's first post-war television receiver

This attractive little set has one of the best performing 7" electrostatic chassis that I have seen. Most 7" sets are rather poor in their performance, not this one! Among it's many features; AFC (no need for fine tuning), fully adjustable vertical and horizontal height, width, linearity and centering. Most 7" set with an electrostatic deflected CRT do not have all these adjustments.

One negative feature of this model that's unlike others 7" sets, is the high voltage supply. Instead of using RF or the flyback method to produce the needed high voltage, it gets the high voltage right from the power transformer. This method, often referred to as the Brut Force system can be lethal.

For your reference, I provide the following photo's that will be enlarged in a new window when you click on them.
