|The Murphy V178C was released in August of 1950 price £104
(£84/6/6 + £19/13/6 purchase tax). A bit of an experimental model,
this set was the first to employ an oil filled line output transformer; this
became standard in most subsequent Murphy televisions.
|The Murphy V180C released March/April of 1950 price £75
(£60/16/3 + £14/3/9 purchase tax).
The yellow background has been added by myself to show that this brochure
was cut to be television shaped!
|The Murphy V150 was released in December of 1949 price £54
(£43/15/8 + £10/4/4 purchase tax). Their cheapest television
(after the war) used 'Universal' techniques to lower the price and to
make a smaller set. The true 'universal' version the VU150 wasn't
released until October of 1950 price £55/10/0.
Yet more Murphy-bilia.
