Aria 175 (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/SW)

Aria 175 (1938)

Aria was one of a hundred brands built by Detrola, and was sold in Wieboldt Department Stores of Chicago. Detrola also supplied Western Auto (Truetone) and Sears (Silvertone), just to name two, with thousands of radios. They were the most productive company in the USA, providing radios for department stores and small retailers. The chassis used in the Aria was used in other radios (Detrola 175E) and consoles under different sellers. The 175 is a eight-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. It produces a ton of volume with push-pull audio through a rebuilt Rola eight-inch speaker. The radio features motorized tuning which functions perfectly. The capacitors have been replaced, and all of the resistors and tubes have been checked and replaced where necessary. A safety fuse, audio cable, new tuning eye, antenna lead and a new power cable have been installed. Gary stripped the radio and refinished with a "piano" hand-rubbed lacquer finish. This dark Walnut set is elegant and gorgeous at the same time! An excellent example of the Aria version of this Detrola-made radio. 21"W x 12"H x 9"D.  $949.00. (1600454)
