US Radio (Apex) 8-A (1931)


US Radio (Apex) 8-A (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
US Apex was based in Chicago and started producing radios in 1925 as the Apex Electric Pool, later known as the US Radio and Television Corp. Brand names they used were, Apex, Gloritone, Mantola, Carlton, Radiotrope and others. In 1933 they merged with Grunow and became General Household Utilities Company. The 8-A is an eight-tube, broadcast band only set. Produced in 1931, it was one of the earlier super-hets sold commercially. It incorporates an AVC circuit, probably one of the earlier radios to do so. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. Checked resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. He added a new cloth power cord and installed a safety fuse. the radio plays great with plenty of volume through the original 8-inch speaker. The two toggle switches on the side are on-off, and Hi power-Lo power which is basically a local-distant station boost. Gary stripped the cabinet and refinished with a beautiful semi-gloss lacquer finish. The set has its original knobs and a reproduction grille cloth. A very unique and beautiful radio! 17-1/2"H x 16"W x 11-1/2"D.
