Philco 16-B (1935)


Philco 16-B (1935)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
From 1933 to 1935, there were four versions of the 16B featuring six radios, and this one was the final set. Referred to as a "shouldered" tombstone, this particular model is hard to find, and considered one of the best radios ever made! This 16B is an eleven-tube, four-band (SB,SWx3) radio. With push-pull audio and a 10-inch speaker, this set has great bass response and a ton of volume. With improved AVC and an RF amplifier, the 16B has some of the best tuning selectivity of that era. Blake replaced all of the capacitors, checked resistors and tubes replacing where necessary. He added a safety fuse, audio cable and a new power cord. The shadow meter is active and works well. The cabinet has the original finish (restored) but Gary did refinish the top of the radio. All the knobs are original and Gary installed a reproduction of the original grille cloth. This radio is very difficult to find and highly sought after by Philco collectors. The fidelity of this radio will blow you away! 22"H x 16"W x 12"D.
