RCA BX-57 (1951)
RCA BX-57 (1951)
Where do you start writing about RCA? This company dominated the electronics industry from 1919 to 1970, the entire time under the direction of David Sarnoff. He acquired Marconi, Westinghouse, NBC, and many other major companies. He owned the patents on the Superheterodyne radios that most companies couldn't afford to acquire, and his tyrannical business practices were legendary. The BX-57 is a four-tube, AM only AC/DC "portable" radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. The radio plays well across the dial utilizing an internal "loop" antenna. The radio appears to never have been used, and it still has the original RCA price tag on it! The cabinet shows minimal wear, and there are no chips or cracks. Gary hand-polished the radio, and it looks like he just pulled it off a shelf in a store! A wonderful, like new original RCA radio! 11"W x 8"H x 5"D.  $269.00. (1600305)
