Magnavox AM/FM AC-DC Table Radio

This Magnavox AC-DC radio needed five new tubes, a re-capping, and troubleshooting to find a broken connection in the FM tuner. I added an inrush current limiter and some additional power supply filtering to reduce the hum. The radio is is great shape and the finish was restored and not refinished. The radio has two speakers – a mid-range and a tweeter for great sound. I picked up this radio to use as a shop radio because of its AM/FM capability.

    I have no idea. I restore old radios, I don’t convert them.

    Harry, that looks great. I just picked 1 of these up from a neighbor for $20. Looks like I need to replace the light bulb. Does the distance of the station effect the volume? Some stations seem to pickup louder than others. Thanks, Mike

    The distance and the power of the stations determines the reception.
