Completely restored electronically, it sounds fantastic with that rich tube sound buyers of these types of radios so much appreciate. With seven tubes, built in loop antenna and tone control for your listening preference, it has excellent selectivity and sensitivity. It also has a phono/Aux.
There is a terminal for attaching an external antenna wire if needed in your locale. As with all of the radios I restore, it has been gone over with the utmost attention to detail. The radio was completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. The cabinet was treated to nourish and enhance the wood. It was then given two coats of wax with a beeswax/orange oil polish to further enhance and protect the finish.
The dial face has crisp and clear graphics and the dial cover is crystal clear. The grill cloth is original. The power cord has been replaced. Electronically, the chassis was restored, cleaned and serviced, with all paper/wax and electrolytic capacitors replaced with new ones. Tubes and resistors were tested and replaced as needed.All controls and contacts were detail cleaned and lubricated. Wiring and other components were replaced as needed. The radio was aligned, peaked and tuned for optimal reception and quality of sound using the internal loop antenna. At 60 years old, this mid century radio was made close to the end of the tube radio era. It was also during a time of peace and prosperity, prior to the turbulent 1960's. Now that is restored, it will provide many more years of. It is doubtful that you will find another of this model radio in such excellent restored condition. It was equipped with a small electrostatic tweeter that was burned out and no longer working. It made only a minuscule difference in the sound, so it was not replaced. Note: Tube radios consist of a variety of vacuum tubes, capacitors, resistors and other electronic components. This radio has been disassembled, cleaned, and components tested. All non-functioning or suspect components were replaced. Vacuum tubes are similar to light bulbs in that an interior filament heats up inside the vacuum tube.
When the filament burns out, the tube will need to be replaced. The tubes in this radio are in good working order. The longevity of the tube and its filaments is related to the length of time the radio is operated and the frequency of turning the radio power on and off.The item "Vintage Zenith G730 AM/FM Tube Radio (1959) RESTORED & BEAUTIFUL" is in sale since Monday, July 1, 2019.
