Arvin 528CS "Phantom Mate" Chairside (1938)

Arvin 528CS "Phantom Mate" Chairside (1938)
Arvin was based in Columbus, Indiana and was the radio brand name manufactured by Noblitt-Sparks. There were four companies with the first starting on 1919 as Indianapolis Air Pump, to car radios in 1933 to home radios in 1935 as Noblitt-Sparks and Arvin. They created "families" of radios, starting with the "Rhythm Series" in 1936 and the "Phantom Series" in 1937. Many of these radios are highly collectable, with the "Rhythm King" being one of the hardest radios to find. The 528cs was called the "Phantom Mate" and utilizes a five-tube, two-band (SB,Police) radio and Arvin designed the "Phantom Filter Circuit" giving the line its name. The capacitors have all been replaced. We checked resistors and tubes and replaced where needed. The radio plays well using about 20 feet of antenna, which we have provided. The walnut cabinet, knobs and grille cloth are all original and in perfect condition. This is a one-owner radio that was well taken care of in a non-smoking home. This rare radio is gorgeous and a wonderful addition to anyone's collection! Small for a chairside at 22" H x 12"W x 19"D.   $599.00. (1600160)
