FADA 790 Series B AM/FM (1949)
Like this radio?   

FADA 790 Series B AM/FM (1949)
The FADA 790 was one of the first radios built after WWII that included the modern FM band. This is in wonderful restored condition and works great on both bands using the internal loop antenna. Has eight tubes plus a ballast. I have sold more than ten of these (last one sold on 2-6-16) and have had no problems. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer example; the dark brown Bakelite cabinet has no cracks or chips and no scratches, dial is perfect, original grille cloth and new dial cover. Knobs still have lettering and are correct. Electronic restoration was performed, replacing electrolytic and paper capacitors, check and replace out of tolerance resistors, band alignment, adjust IF transformers to give peak performance, and replacing bad or marginal tubes. I have added a cable you can use to plug in your iPod/MP3/CD/Bluetooth by selecting the Phono switch position. Bluetooth receiver is available for an extra $30 (my cost), then you can stream audio from your smartphone, computer, etc. Click here to see a video of a similar radio (sold previously) and iPod use. Chassis pics are available, 90 day warranty. Weighs 10 lbs, 14"W x 9"H x 8"D.  $549.00. (1030199)
