FADA 790 Series B AM/FM (1949)

FADA 790 Series B AM/FM (1949)
SALE!  The FADA 790 was one of the first radios built after WWII that included the modern FM band. This example is in wonderful restored condition and it works great on both bands. They were made in brown Bakelite and ivory Plaskon cabinets; the Plaskon is much rarer than the Bakelite. It has eight tubes plus a ballast. Of the more than ten of these I have sold, this is one of the nicest. The cabinet has no cracks or scratches, dial is perfect, original grille cloth and new dial cover. Knobs still have lettering and are correct. Complete electronic restoration was performed, replacing electrolytic and paper capacitors, check & replace out of tolerance resistors, band alignment, adjust IF transformers to give peak performance, and testing tubes: replacing bad or marginal ones with good ones. I have added a cable you can use to plug in your iPod/MP3/CD/Bluetooth by selecting the Phono switch position. Click here to see a video of a similar radio (sold previously) and iPod use. Bluetooth receiver is available for an extra $30 (my cost), then you can stream audio from your smartphone, computer, etc. 90 day warranty applies. Weighs 10 lbs, 14"W x 9"H x 8"D.  Was $599.00, now $549.00.
