IMPERIAL CONTINENTAL - I-299W - Tube radio

Description
IMPERIAL CONTINENTAL - I-299W - Tube radio
Very good - Number of items: 1 - Including: Tube radio - Refurbished

Fully restored German Imperial Continental with very good sound reproduction, thanks to the 3 speakers (1 low/middle, 2 middle/high).
The vulnerable selenium rectifier was preventively replaced by silicon diodes with adjustment resistance and additional flattening.
All external metal decorative parts were polished and protected (bottom frame lightly damaged).
All non-mica/ceramic capacitors and most resistors were replaced (as a precaution).
FM tuner was replaced by a hybrid one (solid state for reception, tube for adjustment and preamplification) with very good reception across the full range (88-108 MHz) with built-in antenna.
Because of the moderate performance on LW, MW and SW, these were replaced by a normal AUX input (100 mV - 3.5 mm jack), a sensitive AUX input (30 mV - 3.5 mm Jack) and Bluetooth receiver. Bluetooth transmitter and cable included. Because of these alterations, the radio is ideal for daily listening on FM or of (wireless) external media players.
Phono input with banana plugs
The “magic eye” EM80 was replaced by an affordable 6E1, connected as VU meter.
Tubes: EF89-EABC80-EL84-6E1(EM80)
Output power: 4 W
User manual included.
Dimensions: W580*H360*D260mm – weight 10 kg
