Another FM only set:
Just like my first radio, the Lafayette #17-0102L
This above radio has an RF stage with 3 gang tuning cap. A good DXer.
My first CD player bought in 1985 for about $400. It proclaims:
"Yamaha Natural Sound Compact Disc Player CD-X2", "Original Music Processing LSIs",
"Double Resolution Digital Filter". Which means 2X oversampling.
Zenith tube AM/FM's
An earlier version (right) of the above set had the old 45MHz FM band included. Also the set below had this band.
In 1945 the FCC decided that FM would have to move from the established 42 - 49 megacycle pre-war band to a new band at 88 - 108 megacycles, to make way for television. Both in frequency spectra and consumer dollars. RCA's David Sarnoff in particular wanted FM to "go away" so the public wouldn't be distracted from buying his latest up and comming product: televisions. More than half a million FM receivers and some 50 transmitting stations would be rendered obsolete.
Model 7H820H, also has 45MHz FM
This Zenith 45MHz FM radio model 8H023 (just got one) looks very similar to the 8H034Z above.
A 3 band SW and MW set:
Nice solid state hot chassis AM/FM with scrolling dial and 6 gang (3 AM, 3 FM) tuning cap:
