I just love old radios, of every kind. There is something about listening to a vintage radio that connects you to the past in a way that very few things can do. The warm sound that comes from a tube radio is just so much nicer than a modern solid state one.
Vehicle audio is equipment installed in a car or other vehicle to provide in-car entertainment and information for the vehicle occupants. Until the s it consisted of a simple AM radio. Once controlled from the dashboard with a few buttons, they can now be controlled by steering wheel controls and voice commands.
If you have a unit with a Wonderbar type automatic tuning mechanism, we disassemble it to clean including the speed governor mechanismlubricate and adjust lever and switch trip points and clean relay and switch contactors. If your radio uses a mechanical vibrator to generate its tube voltages, we replace the buffer capacitors, test the vibrator and replace it with a solid state unit as necessary to assure a long and reliable service life. We disassemble your 8 track or cassette tape player, clean critical areas, adjust mechanical and electrical points and lubricate the unit.
If you are restoring a car sometimes the audio is one of the most difficult aspects to get right,ccustom size holes, special mountings, unusual battery configurations and all you want is to get the best sound possible without ruining your pride and joy! Could you play your MP3's, could you keep a retro look? With our range of audio products its possible to have the best of both worlds.
An antique radio is a radio receiving set that is collectible because of its age and rarity. Although there is no precise criterion for a radio being antique, typically a year-old or World War II vacuum tube set, and a pre transistor set would qualify [ citation needed ]. The first radio receivers used a coherer and sounding board, and were only able to receive CW continuous wave CW transmissions, encoded with Morse code wireless telegraphy.
Optional Preamplifier Outputs are available! Auxiliary input is standard! This picture shows the optional Pre-Amp outputs, highly recommended if your audio system has to compete with your car for high levels of sound, such as convertibles, muscle cars, side pipes etc. With this feature you can add as much power as you need!!
