Arvin 617 "Rhythm Maid" (1936)

Arvin 617 "Rhythm Maid" (1936)
You are looking at a scarce model in nice condition. The radio is part of a series of which this was the second to largest model. This radio is very unique with a massively sized (6-1/2") and multi-color dial with a dramatic detailing of various stations. The radio is a super sensitive six-tube super-het that offers both AM and shortwave. The cabinet is in original condition with a bit of wear for the 83+ years of service. I deemed it in good enough condition to sustain the original finish with a bit of touch up of the base and knobs. I think my detail photos show the condition. The set retains a decent factory original speaker cloth and the wood knobs that came from the factory. The radio has been completely repaired by my professional technician and it plays, as you would expect, perfectly. The radio has been fitted with a mini-jack to allow you to connect it to many modern devices. Bluetooth is available for $25 additional! The large size makes the listening all the better! 21-1/4"H x 17"W x 13"D.  $1,195.00. (0961559)
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.
