Echophone EC600 Farm Radio (1946)


Echophone EC600 Farm Radio (1946)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
When the REA brought electricity to rural America these battery sets became obsolete. Some folks didn't want to give up Grandpa's radio, and enterprising companies like General Transformer of Chicago were there to save the day with battery eliminators to put your battery set on AC power. This very attractive Echophone EC600, manufactured by Hallicrafters, is one of the last of the farm radios. More famous for ham radio gear, Hallicrafters didn't make many broadcast receivers, but when they did they made good ones, and this is a very nice example. I had a General Transformer battery eliminator laying around, so I restored it and put it in this unique piece of Americana. The cabinet is quite nice with only a few minor mars and dings. I put a very nice finish on it with eight coats of nitrocellulose lacquer. All new capacitors, resistors as necessary and a full alignment. A full set of high testing tubes. A cable for your mobile devices. Very good sound for a battery set thanks to a large permanent magnet speaker, and very good receiver sensitivity. 18"W x 10"H x 9-1/2"D.
