Not British I hear you saying, well on the outside you’re correct but its badge engineering. It maybe a German made SABA on the outside but very British on the inside. You see the set employs the Rank Bush Murphy Z718 chassis.
A very 1970’s looking set with the white cabinet and chrome “hairpin” legs. The 70’s saw a few of these bold style sets, like the Murphy “Accoustic” range in white, orange red etc. This was in stark contrast to the majority of sets which were mainly to be found in wood cabinets.
The set as you can see above is pretty much working. Personally I think it would benefit from a grey-scaling as to me the grey’s are a bit too blue. I’m sure we can improve this set further.
