MP3 READY: Comes with 3.5mm to mono RCA cable
DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Philips in late fifties in excellent working condition with MP3 ready conversion. Includes 3.5mm to mono RCA cable. Just plug in your MP3 player; iPod, iPAD, iPhone, or Android. Switch from MP3 to AM radio with rocker switch installed on back panel. Strikingly beautiful and very audio looking. I'm surprised I don't see variations of this aesthetic echoed in other manufacturers' models. A superlative design statement! The quintessential color contrast and metal wire stand is all playbook fifties. Plus, this is a twin speaker system so it's not harsh on the ears either! I can't look away! Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial. Cabinet is original molded salmon colored plastic with white (ivory) front and gold trim. No cracks anywhere. Awesome color scheme. No chips, deep abrasions or missing material. No repairs or repaints. The only blemish are three file notches on the right top front edge. Stupid. Very cool and usable everyday. This radio is over 50 years old! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Kitschy, man. The tuning dial works fine. Original power cable is securely attached no breaks, splits, or exposed wiring. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! 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. 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.
