Hacker Serenade RG16


The Serenade VHF/FM Radio gramophone has been designed in response to many requests for a radio gramophone that is a combination of the very successful Mayflower VHF/FM Radio Receiver and the Cavalier Record Reproducer and fitted in a polished wood cabinet.

This happy marriage makes possible an entirely new conception in high quality radio gramophones. Designed solely for the listener whose prime requirement is the finest possible reproduction of radio and records from a compact and self contained instrument of pleasing appearance, the Serenade seeks and achieves the highest ideals in sound reproduction.

By planning the radio tuner solely for VHF/FM reception, a very high performance is possible, far higher than can be accomplished with a normal combined AM/FM receiver, where circuits and components are limited for dual operation.

Excellent audio reproduction is ensured by incorporating a powerful push pull amplifier fully meeting Class A Hi-Fi standards, and a superb pick-up and loudspeaker system.

The record changer is the latest Garrard Laboratory Series A.T.6. model with a manual and automatic operation control.

For the enthusiast solely interested in high quality reproduction of records a version of the Serenade is available without the radio tuner. Fitted with Garrard's latest single record player type SP25 (Model GP40S) or fitted with the Garrard AT6 record changer (Model GP40C). Price for either model: 65 guineas.


Dimensions: 26-1/4 x 21-1/2 x 17 inches

Weight: 52lb (with stand)

Price 75 guineas (with radio tuner)
