They do warm the room, but of course I don't turn on more than 1 or 2 at a time as they do contribute greatly to BC Hydro's coffers.

The tubed radios get used sparingly & I choose a different one everyday & then switch over to one of my SS rigs...

Thanks for sharing the pics, exlab. I enjoy the look of those old radios, as well.

2x6:

Nope, they are both from one of Grundig's many competitors at the time - Nordmende (both Othello models)- that are quite uncommon today. Grundig, Telefunken & Sata tend to dominate.

The upper one is an export model (stereo) for North America from 1960 that I picked up semi-locally (Victoria craigslist) for $50. A steal considering it is fully operational.

The lower one is a European model from 1955 & is a mono version as stereo was in its infancy at that time. It has been fully restored & is a jewel with its beautiful woodwork. Considering the time & work involved, the $200 (ebay from Quebec) that I paid was another bargain.

With their large speaker complement & tube amps, both sound full & wonderful.

Very nice gear that you have. What is funny, looking at your chess set, we had a carved alabaster set where my MC-100B now sits. I think that my wife prefers the chess set, ha!

BTW, I mustered up the courage to check the KT88 bias voltages yesterday & they are bang on & balanced - no tweaking required...

Only if the units are unique or uncommon.

I'm not going to bore you with pics of my new Denon standard black box DVD/SACD/CD player, ha!!
