 Post subject: Unique "sound" of radios
PostPosted: Sep Sat 30, 2006 4:12 am 
I am interested in collecting other brands besides Grundig. Do different manufacturers have a different "sound". Graetz and Saba were two other brands I am looking at.

Telefunken made some great sounding radios but I'm not sure if they sound "different" than Grundigs. I have an Opus 7 awaiting restoration.

Even this battery/AC portable sounds superb with it's push-pull audio system.

I have a RCA 9-INT-1 which sounds great. According to label inside unit it was made in germany for RCA.

Quality of components, and cabinet construction will play a big part in how a radio sounds, It can be as varied as the number of manufacturers there are. Mine go from almost tinny sounding, to a good deep base, which I prefer. Seems the higher quality the cabinet, the better the sound is to a point, not to say that cabinets are the factor that decides sound quality, just that heavier well built cabinets seem to sound better. IMO !!
Transistors will almost always have more trble sound until you get into the higher priced radios. JMHO.
