At roughly 52 pounds this is a true Boatanchor. A hot receiver with Push Pull 6F6 output tubes so it has excellent audio qualities as well. This old receiver worked fairly well as found however the audio was a bit muddy. It was a fun electrical restoration, I replaced all the paper capacitors, checked the resistors and repaired the phasing variable capacitor. The audio is now clear and sounds incredible with the Hallicraftres PM-23 speaker (the large magnet Jensen). The cabinet was pretty dirty so I carefully cleaned it with a Brillo pad, you'll find some rough spots but retains it's original paint. The serial number of this unit traces to July 1946 production.
