Better Bluetooth

Other sellers usually offer an external Bluetooth receiver that connects with a cable to the radio.  While this can work OK, these receivers run off batteries that you have to recharge with a USB cable, and the audio level is usually pretty weak.  You also may have to tune to a quiet spot on the dial to avoid having a mixture of radio and Bluetooth audio.

My Better Bluetooth is different:
  • Completely enclosed inside the radio (no cables or external modules)
  • Completely self-powered (no batteries that need to be charged)
  • Automatic switching between radio and Bluetooth (just hit "PLAY" on your device, and the radio switches to Bluetooth!)
  • Audio level same as the radio's normal volume
This is Bluetooth done right!  Better Bluetooth is available on any radio I sell for an extra charge of $35.


Philco 16B AM/SW Tombstone (1934)


Philco 16B AM/SW Tombstone (1934)

This was Philco's top-of-the line radio in the mid 1930s, and a magnificent performer it is! Technical progress was so rapid during the 30s that customers who just a few years prior were listening to radios with poor sensitivity, primitive speakers, and weak volume would have been astonished by a radio like this, with its five bands, fabulous sensitivity, two-speed tuning, AVC, high fidelity 10 watt push-pull audio amp, and great-sounding 10-inch speaker. AVC was brand new, and to give listeners the silence between stations they were used to with older designs, Philco added a "quiet AVC" switch on the right side, which enables a squelch circuit. The eleven-tube chassis has been restored to like-new performance, with strong tubes, all new capacitors, a new vintage-style cord, a perfect alignment, and rebuilt tuning drive wheels. Sensitivity is top-notch on all bands, and the shadow meter works well. The audio power is enough to rattle the rafters. I've left the gently worn original finish on this radio, as a witness to many years of everyday use. The top and front still look great; the sides show some normal wear. My "Better Bluetooth" is available. 22-1/4"H x 17"W x 12"D. $595.00. (1310119)

  • Payment by PayPal preferred; money orders and checks also accepted (checks must clear before shipping).

  • Actual shipping costs are paid by buyer. Contact me to determine shipping cost to your address. Shipping overseas is possible, but the customer must be willing to pay for shipping services with delivery verification and insurance. All radios are shipped double boxed, insured, with tracking information.

  • An audio input jack can be provided on any of the radios I sell at no extra charge if you request it, and my "Better Bluetooth" receiver can be installed for $35.

  • All radios and televisions are electrically restored by me. I have many years experience and have restored hundreds of vintage radios, TVs, phonographs, and stereos. If your radio or TV arrives dead or fails within the first 60 days of normal use (and no internal modifications made by the buyer), I will repair for free. Shipping costs for U.S. and Canadian customers for repairs in the first 60 days are split (you pay for shipping to me, I pay for return shipping to you). After 60 days, normal repair and shipping fees (both ways) will apply, although my charges are very reasonable. For customers outside the U.S. and Canada, the customer must pay shipping both ways for repairs, even for those within the first 60 days.

  • If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me and I will do my very best to make things right.
