Atwater Kent 80 (1931)


Atwater Kent 80 (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Atwater Kent cathedrals are among the most attractive and sought-after radios ever made. The cabinet design is impressive, with its twisting carved pilasters supporting an arch with diagonal grained Zebrawood veneer. There are two imperfections on this particular one -- missing circular wood ornaments at the tops of the left and right pilasters, and the dial is a bit faded on the right side. These shortcomings have been taken into account in the price, so if you can overlook them, you can get a real bargain on this model. The six-tube superheterodyne chassis has good sensitivity and selectivity, but like most radios before 1932, it has no AVC. Radios without AVC have a different feel and sound character, and it's a nice experience to see how these earlier radios operated. As with all radios I sell, the chassis has had a full electrical restoration and works as good as new. All paper and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced, as well as most of the resistors. A full RF/IF alignment has been done, and it has a new vintage-style power cord (with original plug). A fuse has been added for improved safety. This radio has a lighted dial and a tone control. 19"H x 16"W x 10"D.
