Hacker is a name that is synonymous with serious sound. The Hacker Brothers were considered the best producers of British transistor radio and became highly regarded for their use of high quality materials, components and design.
The RV14 Hacker Mayflower is definitely a radio worth knowing, not only as a quality Vintage Valve radio but also for the simply styled curved cabinet which allows the beautiful wood to do all the talking. It has the brightest of green magic eyes and lives up to the Hacker reputation for providing a high quality sound.
The RV20 Mayflower II, on the other hand, is just a step too far. Talk about a plain Jane.
I might change my mind when it’s had a little TLC. Yes, the sound is just as good, but really honey, do you want to go out dressed like that?
