Atwater Kent 82 (1931)


Atwater Kent 82 (1931)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Among the most beautiful and most popular of the Cathedrals, you would have to count this stunning Atwater Kent 82 from 1931/32. One of the most stylish and ornate of all the cathedrals I have restored. I decided to go with gloss finish for this beauty, and it is extraordinary! 18 coats of lacquer, three sanding operations and a nearly perfect, slick finish, possibly the best I have ever done. The sound from the near perfect 8-inch speaker is deep and rich. Unlike many restorers, I finish the inside, rear and bottom. All new caps including stuffing all of the originals and resistors as necessary. I replaced most of the rubber wiring and gave it a full alignment. The dial is a reproduction. The model 82 had one of the very first efforts at AVC, employing a "control tube" to vary the gain of the first two stages. It will take some getting used to, but the sound is worth it. For knock-down, drag-out, eye catching curb appeal, you will be hard pressed to beat this radio. I have over 150 hours in this one, and I gave it my absolute best. I hope you will agree, and spruce up your collection with this amazing radio.
