Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)


Zenith 5-R-216 "Cube" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Zenith "Cube" radios were very popular and great sellers for the company. They started a trend with other manufacturers producing their own cube radios. Silvertone, Stewart-Warner, Detrola and others all had their version of the cube. The cube design is still very popular with collectors today. Zenith had seven cube designs and the 5-R-216 was their entry level cube radio. A five-tube, AM-only AC set, it's still a very good radio with good sensitivity and volume. All of the capacitors were replaced with modern equivalents. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, safety fuse and an audio cable to access an external device were installed. The walnut cabinet was completely restored, and it's gorgeous. Most of Zenith's radios had "piano" lacquer finishes, and this cube has that "factory fresh" look. We have the original knobs, chassis and side-mounted speaker. A period-correct grille cloth was installed. Here is yet another Zenith "Cube" that belongs in someone's collection...could that be you? 12"H x 10"W x 9-1/2"D.
