Emerson AX-217 (1938)
(wood tube table radio w/Ingraham cabinet)

Emerson AX-217 (1938)

NEW!This tiny Emerson was given the model name "Little Miracle" and lives up to its moniker. It's a miracle they were able to fit a five-octal tube chassis into such a tiny cabinet! Despite its size, it plays very well, receiving all of my local stations just with its attached antenna shank of wire still bundled. The chassis has been gone through with all new filter and paper capacitors, strong tested set of tubes, controls cleaned and lubricated. The defective (and dangerous) resistance line cord (commonly referred to as a "curtain burner") was eliminated and replaced with a standard line cord and power resistors under the chassis. Between the heat of the tubes and the heat dissipated from the high wattage resistors, it gets extremely warm inside that little cabinet. As such it is not recommended this set be played more than an hour at a time. Because of this and the size limitations, my standard add-on aux audio cord was not installed. The Ingraham cabinet was refinished using toners and topped with a light coat of clear enamel for shine and durability. Only 9"W x 5-3/4"H x 4"D.  $159.00. (1790221)

I offer a quantity discount on my radios, so check out my other listings and drop me a line if you're interested in more than one at a time. A Bluetooth/MP3 player 3.5mm cord has been installed at no additional charge when the circuit design allows for another listening option beyond the standard AM broadcasts. You can plug in to the headphone port of your device and enjoy the music of your choice through the radio or unplug for standard AM broadcasts.
