Zenith 715 (1933)


Zenith 715 (1933)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This magnificent radio has perhaps the nicest of all the early Zenith cabinet designs. The elaborate grille scrollwork is a nod back toward the ornate cabinets of the 1920s. The walnut burl arch and inlaid vertical stripes are deluxe accents that would soon be out of favor. This cabinet is in great shape, and has been refinished with a semi-gloss (true to original) finish. The knobs and escutcheon are original; the grille cloth has been replaced. The dark rectangle right above the dial is actually an original Zenith patch for a dial hole that was cut too large (this is not the only one!). The eight-tube chassis has AVC and a push-pull audio amp for great sound out of the original 8-inch speaker. It works like new, having been thoroughly restored with new capacitors, strong tubes, a precise RF/IF alignment, and other repairs as needed. A fuse has been installed for improved safety, and the cord has been replaced with a vintage style cord (with original plug). The shadow meter works perfectly. The 4th knob at the bottom is for RF gain; it provides no useful function, but perhaps Zenith thought customers would be impressed with another knob. 19-1/2"H x 15-1/4"W x 9-3/4"D.
