Atwater Kent 856 (1935)
Atwater Kent 856 (1935)
This radio was made in 1935 and Atwater Kent stopped production in 1936. Thus, this being one of the last production models, they brought all the advanced elements of their famed history into the manufacture of this model. Note the the lit dial indicators with tiny lights. Added to the dial configuration is a micro tuning employing the "watch dial" which is a dial in a dial for fine tuning purposes. The Atwater Kent 856 is a seven-tube, three-band radio. The dial light changes as you change bands, a cool feature. My tech remarked of the high quality of reception and his professional repair has returned the radio to a like new factory performance. This radio is original with period correct replacement speaker cloth. The finish is terrific, and the knobs original to the radio. Added to the electronics in a mini-jack to allow your connection to any modern type of device. So, you can use your phone or other device to input any content in addition to the factory construction. Bluetooth is available for only $25. 19"H x 14"W x 10"D.  $595.00. (0961659)
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.
