Stewart-Warner R104A Cathedral (1932)


Stewart-Warner R104A Cathedral (1932)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Have you ever heard of a Wunderlich tube? Neither had I until I undertook the restoration of this beautiful Stewart-Warner R104A cathedral. $75 later, I had a gleaming, NIB blue Wunderlich detector tube. These were expensive then as now, and were almost never used. This very rare R104A was one of the few AC sets to ever have one. They provide full-wave detection of the audio signal instead of the half wave detection used in most radios, providing higher output and better fidelity. The beautiful two-tone classic cathedral cabinet has a few minor flaws but is overall in gorgeous condition with twelve coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. The speaker was professionally re-coned and sounds great. I had to replace the power transformer, the grille cloth, the veneer on the sides, and I had to make the tuning knob. All new capacitors and resistors as necessary, and a full alignment. A full set of tubes that all test to new specs. Receiver sensitivity is very good. This is a very uncommon radio. Only one has ever sold on radio attic. I spent a ton of time and money restoring this set. I sure hope you, like me, will think it was worth it. 18-1/2"H x 15"W x 12"D.
