Zenith 6-D-2615 "Boomerang" (1942)


Zenith 6-D-2615 "Boomerang" (1942)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Like all manufacturers, Zenith was scrambling a bit to produce product right before the war. Bakelite was not readily available, so the designers came up with wooden designs to use up an inventory of existing chassis. Zenith engineer Kurt Emde, who designed the "Robot Dial" came up with the "Dial-Speaker" design, which Zenith patented. This chassis was used in seven "Boomerang" models. The D-2615 is a six-tube, AC/DC, AM only radio. This model had the added pushbutton tone controls. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. He checked the resistors and tubes, replacing where needed. He installed a new power cord and audio cable. The radio employs a "Wave Magnet" internal loop antenna and has good reception across the dial. Gary stripped the cabinet of Burl Walnut and straight-grained Walnut. He finished the radio with a beautiful lacquer "piano" finish. A new crystal-clear dial cover was installed. The radio has the original knobs, chassis and speaker. This is a perfect example of a 6-D-2615 that would grace any collection! 14"W x 9"H x 7"D.
