Downsizing Collection

After many years of collecting radios I have finally run out of room, and that dreaded word "downsizing" has reared its ugly head. Not all my hundreds of prized possessions are for sale, but if you see something you must have please email for a complete description. Then you can decide what you want to pay for it. I will accept offers only. Please do not ask me what I want for it, it is up to you to make an offer. Shipping will be added to the total unless your offer is to good to be true, and in that case shipping is negotiable. Just click on the rectangular button called Collection and make up your wish list. Please remember that my usual For Sale list with descriptions and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.



IPOD Cable for Tube Radios with Phono Input item #1790
This is an adapter cable for radios with an RCA phono input that can be used with an IPOD, MP3, IPAD, Smartphone device so you can hear music on your AM radio. The cable is custom made with an RCA phono jack on one end and a 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) stereo jack on the other end. Inside the RCA plug are two resistors to provide a stereo to mono conversion with the appropriate load on your device. You cannot simply use a Y adapter because it will directly short the left and right stereo channels which will blow the output stage on your device. Price is for one cable. Please add $3.50 for first class postage. Also available is a Bluetooth receiver that will accept this cable and then you can have a wireless connection between your IPAD, Smartphone etc and your tube radio. The receiver is $15 additional and comes with a USB charging cable for the internal battery which provides many hours of listening on one charge. First class postage still $3.50 for both.

Crystal Radio Kit? item #1782
Not sure what all these parts are for but I am guessing a crystal radio kit because there is a package containing a steel Galena crystal with fine cat whiskers and another package labeled Philmore Unmounted Crystal Detector. An original order form that may give a hint what all this means is included. Also has a package with assorted assembly parts and 4 coils, 2 blanks, and two with windings. Came from a radio collectors estate. If your interested in the short wave converter (item # 1781) you can have this for $5 more so $25 for both.

One Tube Short Wave Converter? item #1781
I am guessing that this is a homemade short wave converter. It is from a large estate of vintage radios and ham gear. It is a one tube circuit (3Q5 beam power output) with two battery plugs for A+,A-, B+, B-. and antenna and ground terminals. There is another set of clips on back that get B+ from the battery cable and connect to something external that apparently returns the B+ back to the coil. It also comes with the following plug in coils marked as follows: MRL Hi-Q Inductance 5-A 20, 40, 80 and 160 meters (4 coils), and MRL Hi-Q Inductance Type A Broadcast, LF Broadcast, HF Broadcast (3 coils). The 20 M is in the set. There are 4 controls: on left one variable cap with a pattern on the front for tuning, a large vernier from 0-100 with a fine tuning knob, on top right another variable coil (has a cloth covered wire that kinda looks like a spring that gets tighter or looser as you turn the knob, and bottom right on/off and volume? A neat novelty item or get it working if you can. I bet the coils are worth something.

1920's Horn Speaker Base and Driver item #1780
Not sure who the maker is but this is a 1920's horn speaker base and driver. Missing the large horn attachment. Driver tests good.

Chassis - Unknown Olympic item #1779
This may be an Olympic chassis from a radio record player combination. It has the same tube compliment and layout as a Model 501 but I cannot find that model listed with a record player. The chassis is in good condition with all original parts and features a separate tone control on the left. There is also a switch on the end of a shielded cable that selects radio or phono. The power cord is cut but I jumped one in and I got the radio to play but with hum from the electrolytics so they need replacing at a minimum. Field coil speaker in perfect condition. Nice chassis with RCA phono input so easy to plug in your IPOD or MP3 player.

Custom Built Radio in Atwater Kent Cabinet + Horn Speaker item #1778
This is a Radiotiques exclusive which you will not find anywhere else. It is a one of a kind custom built 5 tube radio chassis that was fitted into an Atwater Kent Model 30 receiver. It came from the basement workshop of the late Ed Duda, legendary Chief engineer and amplifier designer of Lafayette Radio Corp. I was lucky to attend an auction and purchase some of his personal collection. The chassis uses the same front controls as the original AK receiver so it has 3 tuning condensors ganged together and turned with one tuning knob calibrated from 1-100. The on/off switch is the same as in the original AK. On the rear are inputs for a speaker, external antenna (it has an internal loop stick), and an RCA jack to plug in a phono, IPOD, MP3 etc. The AK wooden cabinet is in great shape too. The icing on the cake is the addition of an original AK horn speaker (Model H) in great shape that has a PM speaker mounted inside the horn (another Radiotiques exclusive). It was done in such a way that it can be completely removed by the same 3 screws that hold the horn to the throat of the speaker.base. The whole system has an exquisite 1920's look and works fine. That horn speaker adds a dimension to the music that takes you back to the early days of radio. The price includes the radio and the speaker. This will have to be boxed separately and securely so shipping may be on the expensive side but that depends on where it is going.

Atwater Kent Horn Speakers item #1776
Here is a Radiotiques exclusive. I am offering two Atwater Kent Model L horn speakers. I took out the bad drivers, epoxied one base using JB Weld (it is now stronger then the original mounting), and added a 4" permanent magnet speaker inside each horn. The speakers are held in place with the mounting screws for the horn itself so it is fully reversible in case you have a driver. The finish is all original and the Atwater Kent brass nameplates are still on the front showing the model number. Overall condition is decent considering the age and how beat up these usually are (of course they are easily painted if your really going for a bold look). These would make a great add on speaker to any of your existing radios and really bring you back in time to the 1920's. They will give your music a vintage sound that can only come out of a horn speaker (even with the modern speaker inserted into the horn). I have two and that's it. I am saving the third horn (Model H) for another Radiotiques exclusive that I guarantee is a one of a kind which I will list soon. I challenge you to try and find these horn speakers in the condition I am selling for this price. Please note the two pictures show each speaker front and back in their same position. Shipping included lower US 48 only.
