RCA 6-T (1936)


RCA 6-T (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
In 1921, David Sarnoff started RCA as General Manager, and remained until 1970. By 1926, they already controlled the commercial radio industry, buying radio stations, and then formed NBC. Eventually, NBC was broken up into the other networks ABC and CBS. More on RCA in upcoming ads. The 6-T is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked resistors and tubes replacing where necessary. He added a new power cord, external audio cable (Bluetooth, iPhone, iPad) and a safety fuse. RCA made great sets, and this radio plays strong and picks up plenty of stations across the dial. Gary stripped the cabinet. The burl walnut on the front is a nice contrast to the American Walnut found on the sides. Gary did beautiful work, and ended up with a "piano" lacquer finish. This radio has the original knobs, grille cloth, chassis, copper bezel, dial scale and 8-inch speaker. This fine example of an RCA 6-T would look perfect in your collection! 18-1/2"H x 13-1/2"W x 8-1/2"D.
