Emerson AR-176 (1938)


Emerson AR-176 (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Emerson started radio production in New York in 1924. Operating in relative obscurity until 1932, they produced the "Pee-Wee" radio. By 1938 they had sold over a million "Pee-Wee" radios. They were the biggest user of Ingraham cabinets, which have great designs using curves and angles with beautiful veneer. The AR-176 is a six-tube, two-band (SB,SW) set. They came in many varieties: push-pull audio, single output audio, teledial chassis, and farm set. This version offers push-pull audio utilizing two 41 output tubes. It's an excellent performer with tons of audio, nice tone and great sensitivity across the dial. We replaced all of the capacitors, resistors and tubes checked and replaced where needed. A safety fuse, audio input, antenna lead and a new power cable have been added. Gary Marvin refinished the unique "slant-faced" cabinet with the finest grain fillers, paint and lacquer. It has its original Ingraham cabinet badge, and retains the original knobs, grille cloth and decals. A crystal-clear dial cover from Mark Palmquist was installed. This radio is one gorgeous, a perfect example of an AR-176. 17"H x 12-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D.
