Vintage Voltage: A Photo Feature Part 4

By Bill Leebens, Copper Magazine from PS Audio

Researching and writing theoretical and historical pieces is a lot of work, and can get a little dry. As a change of pace, I present pics from Vintage Voltage, a local meet held Sunday, March 18, which included the annual show of the Colorado Radio Collectors Club, and then branched off into guitars, hi-fi, records, test gear, and more. I’ve skipped the record vendors, as they basically all looked alike; I also skipped the guitars for the most part, as to my uneducated eye, it looked like pretty mundane stuff—apologies if it wasn’t, but how many Strats can you look at without lapsing into geeky fervor over minutiae?

My apologies for some of the pics: apparently I still had some shaky hands left over from my recent marathon cold. And now….

Old TVs! And they worked! Not sure what the signal feed was.

Don’t ask me. Not sure what this thing was.

What do you call a little cathedral? A parish church?

A trio of console radios…

…and this rather mundane-looking one is an EH Scott. Too bad we can’t see the chromed chassis.

Documentation on the Scott. Check out the chassis pics on the left.

A pretty deco-ish Zenith chairside radio. Note the top controls.

This little “Reynrad” was made in Colorado, back at the dawn of time.

A battery-powered Atwater-Kent with accessory speaker.

A Zenith Transoceanic in truly spectacular condition.

Finally, an early Atwater-Kent.
