A very nice Grundig Majestic 4090 Tube Radio from the 50s when radio was the deal.
4 bands: FM AM MW LW
9 tubes (tube complement is given on back—see photo)
4 Grundig speakers
Tuning dial for built in ferrite antenna
5 equalizer-like tone controls
I have not tried the shortwave bands but FM (mono only) and AM sound outstanding on the most stations. It has a handy dial on the front that enables the user to tune the unit’s ferrite antenna for better AM reception.
Please note that the FM band only goes up to 100 MHz.
The Magic Eye (tuning tube for FM) is quite weak; it works but is hard to see. Everything else works great including the tone control dials. No missing knobs or dials.
Cosmetically very nice and it looks impressive when turned on. It has inputs for a tape recorder/player so it may be possible to connect a cd player or cassette deck to the unit although I've never tried it. The sound in this case though good would be in monaural of course.
If you listen a lot to CKUA you’ll love this radio.
First $125 offer (cash) takes it. Auction and other online prices vary: I've seen mediocre (e.g no sound missing parts) Grundig 4090s going for under $100 and minty ones fetching over $400. For more information including pricing Google "Grundig Majestic 4090".
Sorry but I really don’t want to pack and ship this—it is large (28” wide; 14” high; 12” deep) and quite heavy. If it doesn’t sell locally I will entertain offers from elsewhere.
