Production figures for 1937 and 1938 Murphy television
A42V (12" Mirror Lid console TV only 1937) 62 receivers
Yes that's all, and it is stated that a number were used for
television training and were never sold.
A56V (9" direct view console TV only 1938) 1445 receivers
A58V (9" direct view console TV incorporating A46 radio unit
1938) 225 receivers
V84T (9" direct view table receiver) unknown, only one is known
V84C/V86C unknown, none known to survive.
V88C unknown, none known to survive.
The V84/V86/V88 models were released just as WWII started. With
no TV signal from Ally Pally any production runs would have been
used as parts throughout the war.
of V86C's were stored at the Murphy factory and were given a
full overhaul and designated as V86CA in 1946 for the
re-introduction of the TV service, so there may just be a few of
those sitting in granny's attic rooms? who knows.
Almost certainly none of the V84/V86/V88 series were sold to the
public before the war.
The A56V was very heavily subsidised at 30Gns (30 pounds and 30
shillings for those who can't remember) by the radio side of
manufacturing to gain market presence and also deliver an
excellent TV at an affordable price.
