FADA 43 Cathedral (1930)

FADA 43 Cathedral (1930)
You are looking at a very early and extremely scarce early cathedral radio. The five-tube chassis plays on Broadcast only on an earlier type of circuit call a "TRF." I had my cabinet pro do the refinish and he discovered the inky super dark finish was covering Rosewood. At that point, I gave him artistic license to highlight the stunning wood. He choose a super high gloss lacquer hand rub finish to accentuate the gorgeous wood. Please excuse the photos as with the finish being so glossy, there is a bit of reflection and bounce from the flash. There is a bit of uneven areas due to the usual shrinkage of the wood, which is now 88 years old. Les has completed his professional level repairs and the radio plays very well for the more primitive type of circuit. He also added the mini-jack connector allowing you addition of an input device or Bluetooth for only $25 additional. This is a rare and beautiful radio and highly collectible! 18"H x 15-7/8"W x 10-1/2"D.  $1,499.00. (0961467)
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.
