Australia: Right: an Admiral AA4
The AWA is quite similar to an AA5, except for the use of a power transformer. Internal loopstick antenna.

A transistor radio:


No, it's solid state:

Apex AD3201. This DVD player has a hidden menu.
To access:
Eject the tray, then press the numbers 8, 4, 2, then 1 on the remote. Dashes should appear on the screen for the first 3 numbers, then the hidden menu should then appear upon pressing the last number. Use the ^ and v keys on the remote to select "region" or "macrovision". Use "enter" to step thru which region you want (9 is "all" or "bypass") and if you want macrovision or not. Macrovision may make some vintage TVs or VCR channel modulators unhappy. To save the settings, close the disc tray. You can use the "Y" video output to feed a B&W TV set, as it will not have the color subcarrier on it.


Airline 83BR-502. No logo anywhere on this radio. Superheterodyne without an IF stage, 300ma heater string with ballast.

The Belmont transistor on the left is a typical superheterodyne set.



This Airline 62-508 radio is a superheterodyne with 150ma heater string tubes.


My brother and I had an Admiral B&W TV set just like this one (model 24R12) back in the '60's when we were kids. Diagram

An Australian MW radio set, circa late 1960's: Calstan

A tube AM/FM stereo tuner someone glued a "Sony" logo over the "Claricon" logo.

The AM section is just like that of an AA5, but the FM is pertty good. I made the FM a little more sensitive by changing the last two FM IF tubes from 6AU6's to 6DE6's (twice the transconductance). Also did that to the AM IF (6BA6 to 6DE6). This was done after I did a first realignment, so I did really see improvement after a 2nd realignment.

A car radio (on the right) using 12V B+ space charge tubes.

Another, tag said it's for a 1960 Oldsmonile

This one is all transistorized. Note the conelrad D markings.

My first stereo receiver, bought in 1972

this one in 1996


Vacuum tube stereo amp
Less hum in the phono preamp if the 12AX7s are replaced with 7025s.
