Philco 38-2 art deco tube radio

I cant find any directions to hook it up. I was told that it works fine and when i plugged it in I did get a radio station, but very weak. How to hook up antenna? how long of an antenna? Just a link to a manual would be very helpful.

Hi sundancevic

These old sets work best with a long piece of wire, the longer it goes and the higher in the air you can get it the better signal. The best results are obtained with hooking up a decent earth against the aerial. get the best earth for the set by hammering a piece of copper pipe (or water pipe) into the ground, then connecting your earth wire to this. Just use thin hookup wire, is all that is requires. There is often a 2 wires hanging out the back of the chassis. The black/green one will always be the earth, the other, the aerial.
I found a picture of the chassis, notice the thin wire next to the power lead. This is where you will find the earth and Aerial connections.

Technics sa8100x reciever


It does have it's own built in amp you know? But if you want to connect it to a more powerful amp, plus it doesn't have a pre-amp out socket the only way would be to have the two inputs of the Tube amp connected by RCA plugs with a Headphone plug on the other end. This would then be plugged into the headphone jack of the receiver. Use the receiver's volume control has an input level control, keeping it very low to avoid damage to the amp. Making the Tube amp do the work.

Cant get the reciever to read the optical cable that is hooked up to the TV. Surrond sound is not working Radio does, any solutions? All new cables and Sony LCD


bpatz,

All systems with multiple audio/video inputs for each connection must be told what connection you want it to play. Most likely your selected choice of input is set to an input other than digital.

First select the input you are using, then change the input mode to digital auto; look in the manual for the exact steps. It should take a few seconds to switch over and then you will be in business.
