Emerson AR-176 (1937)


Emerson AR-176 (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Emerson started radio production in New York in 1924. Operating in relative obscurity until 1932, they produced the "Pee-Wee" radio. By 1938 they had sold over a million "Pee-Wee" radios. After WWII, they produced a TV that by 1948 sold 375,000 sets. Emerson is still in business today selling consumer electronics. The AR-176 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set. They came in many varieties: push-pull audio, single output audio, teledial chassis, and farm set. This one started out as a farm set and was converted to AC and performs very well across the dial. The radio has had all of the capacitors replaced, resistors and tubes checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, audio cable and a new cloth power cable have been added. The cabinet has been refinished with the finest grain fillers, paint and lacquer. It has its original Ingraham cabinet badge, and retains the original knobs and decals. This radio is one gorgeous, a perfect example of an AR-176. 17"H x 12-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D.
