Mocha Brown Bakelite Vintage 1952 Stewart Warner Model 9160 Vacuum Tube Radio Sweet Little Tunester!
DESCRIPTION: One of the more memorable designs from one of the period's best quality manufacturers. Vintage radio with an industrial cum modernist looking design. This radio has a very good audio sound quality despite its diminutive size. I was amazed at the quality of the electronic components inside! Almost all the components were within 10% of manufacturer specifications! There was an abundance of over-engineering and fault tolerant circuitry to ensure frequency and signal response remain true over time and varying conditions. I like. This is an impressive listening radio. Very loud and clear no humming or buzzing on AM bands. Has a small chip on back right of the cabinet! All original molded factory brown bakelite with no repaints or repairs. All knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing. Picks up AM clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. The knobs are securely attached. This radio is almost 65 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. No missing numbering, dots or dashes, or anything. No smudges or yellowing. The back panel is in excellent condition. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. All out of spec capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. The original power cord and plug is in good working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. No exposed wiring. Backing board is original no cracks no missing pieces print is clear and legible. No missing factory labels. 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.
