Better Bluetooth

Other sellers usually offer an external Bluetooth receiver that connects with a cable to the radio.  While this can work OK, these receivers run off batteries that you have to recharge with a USB cable, and the audio level is usually pretty weak.  You also may have to tune to a quiet spot on the dial to avoid having a mixture of radio and Bluetooth audio.

My Better Bluetooth is different:
  • Completely enclosed inside the radio (no cables or external modules)
  • Completely self-powered (no batteries that need to be charged)
  • Automatic switching between radio and Bluetooth (just hit "PLAY" on your device, and the radio switches to Bluetooth!)
  • Audio level same as the radio's normal volume
This is Bluetooth done right!  Better Bluetooth is available on any radio I sell for an extra charge of $35.
 

 

Emerson 587 (1949)

NEW!

Emerson 587 (1949)

This ivory Plaskon Emerson 587 is an attractive compact "All American Five" table radio. The cabinet is in nice shape, without any chips or cracks. Knobs, escutcheon, grille, and back are all original. The chassis has been fully restored with all new capacitors, a few new resistors, a strong set of tubes, and a full RF/IF alignment. It performs beautifully, with great sensitivity and selectivity. A new polarized power cord has been installed along with power switch circuitry modification to improve safety. Lighted dial. It's small and light, so shipping will not break the bank. 9"W x 5-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D. $115.00. (1310143)

 

Fisher 500-C FM Stereo Receiver (1963)

Fisher 500-C FM Stereo Receiver (1963)

The Fisher 500-C is one of the finest tube high fidelity stereo receivers -- period. A favorite with tube audio enthusiasts, this one is in perfect working condition and excellent cosmetic condition as well. It has been meticulously restored to factory-fresh performance with a good set of tubes, a full recap, replacement of selenium rectifiers with silicon, bias adjustment, new resistors where needed, a careful sweep generator alignment of the FM tuner, and a scope alignment of the stereo multiplex unit. In addition, this one is loaded with expensive audiophile capacitors (Alessandro, Solen, and Auri-Cap) in the audio signal lines; a previous owner installed them, and I cleaned up his messy wiring to look very professional. It simply looks and sounds great. 30 watts per channel. It has an aux input and dual phono inputs for both magnetic and ceramic cartridges. The FM tuner is very sensitive. The stereo beacon light and all other functions work perfectly. Original Fisher cord and plug in good condition. 17-1/2"W x 6-3/4"H x 13-1/2"D. $1,295.00. (1310137)

 

ITI Topps International Q780 (1960s)

NEW!

ITI Topps International Q780 (1960s)

Always fun to come across a radio in new condition in its original packaging. This one has everything it originally shipped with except the batteries (probably a good thing!). The complete package includes the outer box, foam packing, earphone, operation manual, and a cleaning cloth, still wrapped in plastic. Based on the transistors used, the date is likely between 1959 and 1969. An interesting technical quirk is that in addition to a perfectly fine built-in Ferrite loopstick antenna, this radio has a 36" telescoping antenna. The chassis is completely clean and original, and is unrestored. Grille is completely corrosion-free. 7-1/2"H x 5-1/2"H x 3-1/4"D. $75.00. (1310145)

 

Philips Philetta B2D23A (1962)

NEW!

Philips Philetta B2D23A (1962)

The Philetta was perhaps Philips' most popular line of table radios, with many generations from the 40s through 70s, and models specialized to worldwide markets. This one was made for Germany, with Central European broadcast stations marked on the dial. In addition to AM, LW, and SW bands, this radio includes the FM band, albeit a slightly shortened version covering 88-104 MHz which was the European FM band at the time. Philips gave this radio a spectacular dial and grille design, with transparent pillars that light up in a darkened room for a striking effect. Everything is original and in excellent condition, and it performs very well on both FM and AM. The chassis has been fully restored with new capacitors, new rectifier diodes, a good set of tubes, a new power cord, and a full RF/IF alignment on AM and FM. Sensitivity and sound quality are top notch. The piano keys select the band, and there is a tone control concentric with the volume control on the left. There are separate concentric AM and FM tuning knobs on the right. Two small coils of wire are provided on the back, which you can unwrap to serve as a compact FM dipole antenna. 11-1/4"W x 7-1/4"H x 6-1/2"D. $245.00. (1310144)

  • Actual shipping costs are paid by buyer. Contact me to determine shipping cost to your address. Shipping overseas is possible, but the customer must be willing to pay for shipping services with delivery verification and insurance.

  • An audio input jack can be provided on any of the radios I sell at no extra charge if you request it, and my "Better Bluetooth" receiver can be installed for $35.

  • All radios and televisions are electrically restored by me. I have many years experience and have restored hundreds of vintage radios, TVs, phonographs, and stereos. If your radio or TV arrives dead or fails within the first 60 days of normal use (and no internal modifications made by the buyer), I will repair for free. Shipping costs for U.S. and Canadian customers for repairs in the first 60 days are split (you pay for shipping to me, I pay for return shipping to you). After 60 days, normal repair and shipping fees (both ways) will apply, although my charges are very reasonable. For customers outside the U.S. and Canada, the customer must pay shipping both ways for repairs, even for those within the first 60 days.

  • If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will do my very best to make things right.
