RCA X551 (1951)
RCA X551 (1951)
If you're looking to get into antique radio on the cheap, you just hit the jackpot. This plain Jane little RCA X551 is one of RCA's "Golden Throat" radios, so named as part of an ad campaign where they endeavored to maximize sound quality with superior electrical design and matching cabinets to speakers to get the best out of the radio. This one came to me in fairly sad shape. Someone had turned the knobs with paint on their fingers, and had paint all over the radio. It had a couple of cracks, which I repaired, but are not perfect. It is missing its front panel logo. I have included a cable for your mobile devices. Just remove the brown plug from the right side, plug in the cable and adjust the volume with your mobile device and volume control. I have seen these in the price guide as high as $250. This one has some shortcomings, and I am pricing it accordingly. 12"W x 9"H x 6"D.  $109.00. (1680055)
