Giant Radio Has 37 Tubes (Apr, 1934)
Giant Radio Has 37 Tubes
EQUIPPED with 37 tubes and six speakers, the largest of which is 18 inches in diameter, one of the largest radio sets in the world has been produced by a Cincinnati, Ohio, radio manufacturer. The set is nearly five feet high and weighs 475 pounds.
The huge radio has a tremendous volume range with a maximum output of 75 watts, yet it can be tuned down to normal living room volume without distortion of tone quality. Four chassis are required to mount the working elements.
The set is capable of reproducing from 20 to 20,000 cycles of audio frequency, although the normal human ear is incapable of hearing above 16,000. The dial of the receiver is 12 inches in diameter.
