1922 Rca Westinghouse Ra & Da Separates * Near Mint & Working


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I've put together a broad, beautiful assortment of museum quality technological and musical gadgetry this week, so regardless of what you like to collect, I think you'll find something that interests you.Here's a 1922 Westinghouse Receiving Tuner Type RA and its matching Westinghouse Detector Amplifier Type DA. Both components were marketed exclusively by RCA and come from the last production run of RA's and DA's -- May, 1922. By that point, according to RCA radio historian Eric Wenaas, fewer than 5% of the run was devoted to the production of separates. Condition of both components is excellent to near mint throughout. Moreoever, they are 100% original (including the early Westinghouse transformers), and both still work. They're being offered with a good set of 01A tubes and an excellent, working pair of Brandes headphones.The brushed bakelite panels of both the RA and DA are pristine, with no chips, no cracks, no blotchiness, no filled holes, no issues of any type. The panel lettering on the DA is still clear, with only minimal wear around the knobs. Dials and dial lettering are also close to perfect on both components. All of the binding post nuts are original, as are all of the connecting rods and panel screws. There is no rust or even any bad tarnish evident anywhere.The chassis of both components are pristine. Perfect wiring, brightly colored sheathing, clean original solder connections, no repairs or restoration. Wiring on the all of the tuning components is tightly wound around the forms. Miraculously the original rubber tube shocks are still wholly intact in the DA. Another miracle: both original Westinghouse AF transformers are still good (all windings.)Cabinets are beautiful, and the finish is of course original. Light (almost cherry-colored) mahogany, just the way you want to see them. All of the original feet are still intact on the underside of the cabinets.As noted above, they still work. If you want to operate the pair, you'll need a longwire outdoor antenna (ham radio type -- approximately 120 feet long and 20 feet off the ground), a good regulated DC power supply (I'd recommend and ARBEIII), the supplied Brandes headphones (or a ca. 20's horn loudspeaker) and a good indoor ground connection. The tubes have good emissions, and they've tested in the radio. If you're familiar tuning principles of an early 20's regenerative radio, and you have the proper antenna erected, and the proper DC power supply, you should be able to use them as soon as they arrive. If you're not familiar with tuning principles of an early 20's battery radio, you've got a bit of work ahead of you, though I'll provide you with a reproduction of the original owners manual and a copy of the service notes to help you along.That's about it. I will package the components properly so that they arrive at your doorstep safely. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my response, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly. OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: it's going to be expensive to ship this set abroad, so if you're offerding from outside the US, please contact me first for a shipping quote so that I confirm my ability to get it to you. Buyer prepays and includes shipping. Overseas customers may remit payment with Paypal only. sale participants with no prior response should contact me prior to placing a offer. Thanks.
