Illuminated Belmont Radio w/ Bluetooth
A spectacular 1932 vintage Belmont Radio - we admit we are torn about parting with. A rare find, its design is exceptionally lovey, with a captivating lattice front face pattern that we have highlighted with a cluster of Edison bulbs that complement its lines. Enjoy the full demonstration below.
Lighting is controlled via the radio dial, from barely visible to cheerily bright.
A flip of a brass switch turns on the audio function, indicated by the dial lighting up. After connecting (with ease) the first time, the unit will automatically connect to your device. That is when the fun begins.
It also features a 3.5mm "mini plug" auxiliary input so you can plug in a device that is not bluetooth equipped.
Audio quality - Like many other radios of its day, this piece was beautifully designed to reproduce sound, especially in the mid-tones of the human voice. Warmth and presence rings right out of the wood with clarity, charm and a full-bodied sound that is as unique as it is inviting. It is a thrill to hear any variety of audio coming from this remarkable device - but it is especially at home with tunes from the 1920s-40s era. We have experimented for years to find the right combination of amplifier and speaker to optimize the tone of our wonderful radios, and have discovered what we think is the very best for each one.
As we tested this radio, we happened to call up the original recording of "When You Wish Upon a Star." We challenge anyone to listen to that particular song emanating from this piece and not become at least a bit misty-eyed. Absolutely breathtaking.
This is the only device of its kind, and is bound to become a showpiece in your home. It is simple to operate, surprisingly portable, and comes complete with a detailed one-sheet manual. All electrical materials used are UL, CE, and/or CCC approved. Like all of our pieces, it has been thoroughly tested for safety, reliability and soundness.
Your satisfaction ensured: Should this piece ever require servicing apart from bulb replacement, accident, or misuse, we will promptly set things right to your satisfaction at no charge save shipping.
