Atwater Kent 708 Cathedral (1933)

Atwater Kent 708 Cathedral (1933)
Sold by Tom Albrecht on December 15, 2017
Listed price on date of sale - $450.00
This beautiful Atwater Kent cathedral radio was a bit of an engineering marvel in its time. With continuous coverage of 0.54-20 MHz in four bands (covering broadcast and shortwave), the eight-tube superheterodyne chassis with AVC was ahead of its time. Sensitivity and sound quality are excellent. The cabinet has been refinished to match the original very well in both luster and color. The delicate latticework is in great condition. Grille cloth is original; one knob is a replacement. Chassis restoration included all new capacitors and resistors, replacement of wiring with deteriorated insulation (including power transformer wires), a strong set of tubes, a new volume control/switch, a full RF/IF alignment and dial calibration for all bands, and addition of a fuse for improved safety. The previously replaced vintage-style power cord is in good condition. Lighted dial. 16-1/2"W x 14-1/2"H x 10"D.
