Zenith 6-S-527 (1941)


Zenith 6-S-527 (1941)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Zenith made a very attractive and popular radio in the 6S527. The pinstriped bands of veneer, and the elaborate speaker grille are very eye-catching. The cabinet was quite nice as received. I touched up a few places and put four coats of nitrocellulose lacquer over it. It retains a few dings and witness marks from its 80 years of prior service, but overall presents very well. The sound is quite good from the 4-inch perfect speaker. A labor-intensive restoration as I had to replace a lot of the miserable rubber wiring. A full set of good tubes, all new capacitors, including stuffing the original Filter cap, resistors as necessary, and a full alignment. The original knobs and buttons are not the best but I thought did not warrant replacement. I replaced the dangerous 6X5 rectifier tube with a solid-state rectifier. Broadcast and short wave. Receives well on the internal wave magnet antenna, but has connections on back for more distant station. All in all a great looking and great performing radio, backed by the Zenith slogan, "The quality goes in before the name goes on." 16"W x 8-1/2"H x 7"D.
