7 valve + transistor pre-amp + magic eye radiogram with three speaker extended range audio outputThe Philips FZ886A is part of the Philips Festival Hall series of radios.
The Festival Hall series were high-end multi-band radiograms typically using Hi-Z speakers and typically complex (Philips were the Google of their day) circuitry. They were well-built and had great sound. The first few models were mono and valve based, with later sets becoming stereo and also switching to transistors as those became available. There were also valve hybrids with transistor preamp modules in the record input.
