Zenith 5S-319 Vintage Wood Cabinet Tube Radio:
Offered for sale is this beautiful vintage vacuum tube Broadcast band and shortwave receiver. The Zenith model 5S-319 from 1939 is a small tabletop 5-tube AC 115 volt super-heterodyne circuit radio. The 5 inch loudspeaker is Electro Magnetic Dynamic. The radio receives the standard broadcast band and one short wave band, and has "automatic" or push-button pre-set tuning. This stunning receiver is completely original and has been electronically restored. The elegant walnut wood cabinet is very solid including the veneer. Grill cloth is original with no damage, holes, or tears. Cabinet dimensions: 13" W x 8.9" H x 7.4" D. Original rubber feet on the bottom of the cabinet are intact. There is one slightly discolored spot on the top back edge of the radio visible in photographs. Vacuum tubes have been tested and replaced as necessary with the correct glass vacuum tubes. Electrolytic and paper capacitors have been replaced. Resistors checked for proper tolerances. All voltages checked and verified at every position in tube sockets to insure maximum performance.

New rubber molding has been installed on the dial glass rim. The brass "racetrack" dial bezel has been polished and returned to its original luster and clear coated. (My reflection is seen in the photo of the dial bezel). The knobs are all original and in perfect condition and have the original knob felt rings behind them. The radio has been aligned to factory specifications and dial pointer is positioned properly. The speaker is 100% and produces a rich and clear sound. I connected the antenna lead to an alligator clip lead and clipped the other end to my garage door metal track. I received all local stations clearly and many distant AM Broadcast stations just after dusk. I was able to tune many shortwave stations at night including several religious stations, Radio Havana, and Radio China International. This highly sought after wood cabinet table radio was used by many Americans to follow the battle news in the Pacific and Europe during World War II. This is the finest example of this radio I have ever seen. This museum quality radio is being offered in a true sale with . Shipping: The radio will be wrapped in multiple layers of bubble wrap, cushioned by packing peanuts and double boxed. Own a piece of history!
