1947 Admiral 7T10E-N Tube Radio. Presented here for your consideration is this museum quality 1947 ebony gem from Admiral. Made in Chicago, Admiral made quite a statement with this a large and robust cabinet design when so many other manufacturers were concentrating on smaller, compact plastic sets. Featuring the original “A’” monogrammed knobs and a warmly illuminated dial scale, it has been restored and is ready for your listening enjoyment. Beautiful black plastic bakelite cabinet (not painted) that is smooth to the touch with a mirror-like reflectivity. Intricately and meticulously hand polished to a brilliant factory fresh luster while maintaining and preserving its original and historically accurate appearance. It measures 8″ tall X 13 1/4″ wide. This is a fully restored and working radio. With each of my restored radios I invest significant time and attention to detail in order to bring you a radio with a level of workmanship and quality at a much higher standard than an average restoration. One that is not only worth displaying in your prized collection or proudly accenting your home or office decor, but one that will also bring you dependable and reliable listening enjoyment. In the interest of safety, performance and reliability ALL paper, wax and electrolytic capacitors have been replaced with modern day equivalents. Any resistors testing out of their allotted tolerance have been replaced. Every tube was tested and replaced if found to be under performing. Voltages are checked against the manufacturers specs. All moving parts are lubricated for smooth operation. A brand new power cord is added to replace the unsafe and brittle original. The signal strength is then aligned to factory specs to provide peak performance. Lastly, the set is then put through its paces by bench testing it for a minimum of 48 hours to ensure reliability and to allow for a proper’burn in’ period for new components. As a result of this entire restoration process, the set performs clearly, strongly and with that unmistakable tube driven sound. Very attractive cabinet appeal! No cracks, breaks or chips. Beautiful ebony plastic/bakelite cabinet (not painted) with an eye catching mirror-like reflectivity. Intricately and meticulously hand polished and detailed through a multi-stage process bringing the cabinet back to its original and historically accurate appearance all while retaining the natural production qualities and textures of the cabinet. All resulting in a beautifully reflective luster (you can see reflections of my shop in the photos). No shortcuts are taken. No clear coats, oils or auto waxes are used. Knobs & Dial Scale. Complete with the original factory plastic knobs. Each displays the Admiral “A” monogram wonderfully and is such a nice accent on this beauty. Each knob has been meticulously hand polished to a reflective luster with no chips, cracks or breaks. The dial scale features an ornate silver foil center that is simply wonderful to look at. Accented by a brown plastic aviation style dial pointer. The numbers are easy to read and are warmly illuminated when the set is on. All protected by a crystal clear plastic dial lens. This set also comes complete with the original factory backboard. It shows some very slight bowing near the left but still holds very strongly and securely as intended. It’s the same backboard that it left the factory with in 1947. Please view all 11 photos.
