Philco 90 Cathedral (1932)

Philco 90 Cathedral (1932)
Long recognized as the classic cathedral radio, the Philco 90 is a beauty. Designed by the famous Edward Combs, the "90" was the very top of the line. This nine-tube powerhouse is a tremendous super-het. The radio had the very latest technology, including automatic volume control. The condition is very good considering it is 84+ years old. Clearly the radio is an older and skillfully refinished cabinet. It has all the factory-installed parts and correct reproduction speaker cloth. The radio has been refinished with a very high luster, hand rubbed lacquer finish. Note the dial is backlit by the dial light, difficult to get a decent photo. The markings on the dial show clearly when the radio is on. Note how dramatic the book-matched veneers are highlighted on the front. The collector did a very nice job. Les has done a complete and perfect repair. The radio plays loud and clearly with an excellent level of selectivity. The radio has a fine silk reproduction replacement cord with a new Bakelite plug for your safe use. He added a mini-jack for your auxiliary input device. This is the rarest of the three 90 models and the one to own. Bluetooth is available. 19"H x 17"W x 12"D.  $799.00. (0961329)
All of our radios have preinstalled mini-jacks at no additional charge.  These are installed with no damage to the integrity of the radio or cabinet damage.  These will allow you to input to your old radio from any modern device.  These include phones, pad and computers.  I enjoy listening through my broadband connection.  My favorites are: pandora.com, iheart.com, and internet-radio.com.  The content is prerecorded, live FM, and shortwave and free.

NOW!  Bluetooth adaptors available with a simple add on.  The cost is $25.  Stream audio to your radio from any Bluetooth enabled device.  The range of these units is 25-30 feet.
