The Bush DAC90a radio was introduced in 1950. This model superseded the DAC90 and uses smaller valves and a completely redesigned chassis.

The Bush DAC90A is probably the most sought after and collected vintage valve radio of our time. This is because it’s easy to use, it’s compact, it doesn’t need an external aerial, and it looks good and works well. Once restored, these radios are also extremely reliable and can be used every day without problems. It’s a four valve plus rectifier superhet with a well laid out chassis housed in a beautiful Bakelite cabinet. Unlike some radios, there’s nothing complex about the design. This is a well designed and well built radio, two attributes which result in reliability.
The Bush DAC90A Radio – Variants & Versions

There were several versions of the famous Bush DAC90A radio. The radios were basically the same but the dial glasses and knobs differed. The cabinets also varied from ivory to brown or black Bakelite.
