Philips Philetta B2D23A (1962)


Philips Philetta B2D23A (1962)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Philetta was perhaps Philips' most popular line of table radios, with many generations from the 40s through 70s, and models specialized to worldwide markets. This one was made for Germany, with Central European broadcast stations marked on the dial. In addition to AM, LW, and SW bands, this radio includes the FM band, albeit a slightly shortened version covering 88-104 MHz which was the European FM band at the time. Philips gave this radio a spectacular dial and grille design, with transparent pillars that light up in a darkened room for a striking effect. Everything is original and in excellent condition, and it performs very well on both FM and AM. The chassis has been fully restored with new capacitors, new rectifier diodes, a good set of tubes, a new power cord, and a full RF/IF alignment on AM and FM. Sensitivity and sound quality are top notch. The piano keys select the band, and there is a tone control concentric with the volume control on the left. There are separate concentric AM and FM tuning knobs on the right. Two small coils of wire are provided on the back, which you can unwrap to serve as a compact FM dipole antenna. 11-1/4"W x 7-1/4"H x 6-1/2"D.
