Documentation Signed
Period 1920-1949
Creation Date 1938
Description This is a 1938 Zenith 9 tube model 9S244, Zenith’s most famous and collectible year. It is sporting the fabulous “Motor Drive Robot Shutter Dial” and green tuning eye. The large black dial is in very excellent shape. The cabinets’ book-matched walnut veneer is beautifully restored with a flawless lacquer finish and toned lacquer color trim. The grille cloth is a reproduction of the original pattern. The knobs are the original wood Zenith knobs, no reproductions here. The superheterodyne chassis is a performer and plays full dial scale, loud and clear. The radio has had a complete recap electronic restoration – all the electrolytic caps were replaced with new production parts. All the paper foil capacitors were replaced as well. The dial belts are new for smooth motor operation and tuning.

Additionally, a small two shelf bookcase/storage on this and this radio has been fitted with a 1/8 inch adapter which will allow you to use this with your iPhone, smartphone, iPod, or record player. Access your old vinyl, or log on to Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, or the playlist on your computer to provide the tunes and use the Bluetooth connection to bring the warm, bright, analog sound of a tube amplifier to any music or recordings you choose.
