Victor Radio (1934)


Victor Radio (1934)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Unknown model. Very simple TRF four tube design with no rectifier tube; it uses a triode for the rectifier. One reason was because this was a far cheaper tube than the 25Z5 used then by most AC/DC sets. Tubes are 6 volt heaters so the difference is made up in a resistance cord. The cord on this radio is NOS and will get warm to the touch, but that is normal. The chassis was originally "hot;" in other words, one side of the AC cord was connected to it. I made a modification isolating the B-side from the chassis. Also, I added a safety capacitor and a reproduction Bakelite plug that looks original but has polarized poles. The radio is much safer now than when new. The radio plays pretty good; being a very crude design and with a pin-drive speaker it rather sounds like the old horn type sets of the 20's. No real hi-fi here. Capacitors have all been replaced and tubes and resistors replaced as needed. My guarantee applies. Being a TRF type with only two adjustments for alignment, there are some squeaks and squawks while tuning, but that is normal. Picks up local stations with the antenna wire supplied. The walnut cabinet has been refinished in lacquer. 10"W x 7"H x 6"D; 8 lbs packed.
