Okay, so today I was at my grandparents, and I was talking to them about two full valve radios they own, and they said that I could have them if I wanted, so, me being me, I took them (I like old electronics, especially valve electronics).

But I don't really know much about them, all I know is that the oldest one is from 1948, is manufactured by His Masters Voice, and was like #146 in it's model, the other is a radiola 461MA from 1954

Dunno if anyone will be able to help, but yeah, worth a shot.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Umm, what the hell, these are obviously full valve, can you not see the valves. And they're radios, you turn them on, and get pick up radio. It has no input jack, just an antennae and an earth...


Also, they both work (The woodern one needs new string connecting up the tuning wheel, apart from that it's perfect), and the plastic radiola one only works when I hold the antennae.

That was quite a laugh that you caused me there, Zero.

EDIT:

^ His response made it so much better...

You said you don't know if anyone can help, help with what? They're very cool by the way, probably quite valuable

One of the coolest things under the sun to collect. I had one when I was stationed in Germany. In was WWII era. There were of course numbers on the dial face, but, there were also European cities shown as well. The bitch is locating repair parts/tubes. Check this link out, it might help you out if things go south on your cool radios: http://www.justradios.com/links.html

I remember I bought an old tabletop stereo radio from a pawn shop and it's tubed.

talk about a nice sounding radio, so mellow. My friends' been bugging me to sell it to 'em.

It was so long ago (probably in the 60s) that I don't remember what I did with it.

I didn't know HMV used to make radios. nice one. I've got an old valve radio in the garage, it's not as old as those two though.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

Plug a shovel into it.

But seriously, thats pretty cool. Try googleing the name of make or model if it has one on. Or see if there are any booklets your grandparents have for it.
