Description

I acquired this radio from a flea market here in town..,.was not too much money..This radio has AM broadcast and phono 78 rpm...The adio uses 5 GT style tubes (6SA7,6SK7,6SQ7,5Y3 ........and 6K6 single ended output.Note the small loop antenna connected to the chassis...There is something wrong with the phonograph motor...possibly loose wire/solder joint or maybe the motor is burnt out...(could have it rewound if so )....The cabinet is in fantastic condition...but the permanent magnet speaker is missing.I have some spare speakers that should work....The radio does not use a field coil speaker or any chokes in the power supply...just a 3000 ohm resistor and two 10 mF electrolytic capacitors....
