    I've been collecting antique Philco's for a while now, and last weekend I got another one. A 1934 Philco 16B. We replaced all the philter capacitors this morning, and it sounds quite well. Even without an alignment and having all the original wax capacitors.

    This radio has eleven tubes. That's a lot for a table set, or any radio for that matter

    That is a nice radio.

    I have many of the old Tubes if you need them. NIB-NOS


    The smell of those old radios gives me a hardon. I am not right, My mother had me tested.


    Happy Holidays, Drink don't drive.
