Zenith 5-S-220 "Cube" (1938)


Zenith 5-S-220 "Cube" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith hit a home run when they designed six different models of the "Cube" in 1938. They sold a lot of them, and soon other companies were coming up with their own "Cube" version. Zenith also had great success with their big, black dials, and continued them in the smaller radios, including all of the "Cube" models. I have had several cubes over the years, but this is the first model 220 I have come across. This five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set is a surprisingly strong radio with good sensitivity across the dial. We replaced all of the capacitors, checked resistor values, replacing where needed. Replaced a couple of tubes, and the radio roared to life. A new power cord and audio cable were installed. Gary stripped the all-mahogany cabinet and refinished, ending up with a "piano" lacquer luster. This model just doesn't show up much for some reason, so here's one all finished for your collection. Shipping is included. 9-1/2"W x 11"H x 9"D.
