DESCRIPTION: Audrey thinks this radio is simply fabulous! Tabletop Tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Emerson in 1956 excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition with no cracks, splits, or missing urea plastic. No cracks on top. Wow! The metal stand is so cheesy: I love it! What most amazing are the four little rubber feet are all still present. They slide easily off the metal stand legs so not losing them after close to 50 years is an absolute miracle! The front grill in excellent condition. No missing label on front speaker grill. The knobs are in excellent condition. The little on/off switch is present and securely attached. The clear dial face clear but yellowed not cracked. Please see the photo close-up. There are small scratches on the clock face. The clock lettering is a little rubbed off. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works but does not keep accurate time. It seems to work when you tilt it a certain way, but stops or slows down when it's just sitting there. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. Backing board is in good condition with crisp square corners. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment no pets. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
