Setchell Carlson Art Deco Restored Table Top Radio Bluetooth
Item #2767 SOLD
1937 Setchell Carlson tabletop tube radio. The cabinet has received our professional restoration and features a beautiful American Walnut finish. Its elegant waterfall top and unique grooved inlaid sides really add to the Art Deco appeal. The bright backlit dial features an array of colors. Take note of the artwork on the dial; two globes, radio towers, an airplane, zeppelin and boat! The powerful 7 tube chassis has had all tubes tested and replaced as needed as well as the capacitors and resistors. The radio performs exceptionally well with lots of volume from the large 8” speaker. I’m able to pick up many stations across the AM broadcast band with a deep rich tone. I was also able to pick up a few shortwave stations at night.
This radio has an additional Bluetooth set up that can be switched on by just turning the switch on the back. You are able to operate with smart-phone or any Bluetooth connectivity. Pandora, Apple Music or the playlist on your computer to provide the tunes and use the Bluetooth connection to bring the warm, bright, analog sound of a tube amplifier to any music or recordings you choose. The quality of the sound is excellent. You will have the best of “digital” and “analog” combined.
