I've got a 41-295 too! My parents bought it at an auction in 1979, and I restored it for them many years later. It's now in my possession in regular use

I've had almost every Philco console there is, including the 39-116. Never had mine working either......

i own sevral of those older philco and zenith radio consoles from the 40s. its hard to find one thats not in horrible condition, but they are fairly reliable units, most of mine have worked and givin what they are, in all fairness, the sound quality isnt half bad! especially when you get one with a aux/phono hookup. its intresting to hear booty bass gangsta rap blaring out of a 70 year old radio.

Yep, I'm a big fan of 1939-42 Philcos. The only real downside is all the rubber wire with crumbling insulation that you have to replace. I used to also have a 42-690, with the BOL phono, but the cabinet was badly water damaged, and the chassis had a mouse nest in it made from that pink insulation, so I just parted it out. My all-time favorite console is the 42-1016P, with the mystery control, BOL, and old FM band. I've always found it kind of disappointing that Philco didn't continue using the BOL and mystery control after the war.

You can really crank up the 41-295 too, with the push-pull 42s it has. I've recently gotten into weightlifting, and with it heavy metal, (listening to Ray Conniff and Herb Alpert 1960s-easy-listening-type-stuff that I usually listen to doesn't really work as well when you're trying to bench press) It is some kind of height of weirdness, to be listening to 1980s heavy metal, from mp3 files on my 2000 computer, through my homebrew tube AM transmitter (built on a 1959 Magnavox console amp chassis), on my 1941 Philco radio.

Once upon a time I attempted to play "Metal Machine Music" (on 8-track) in my car. Then it caught fire...

Philco house rockers

This Philco 42-1009 found at at a flee market by the trash pile
Now I need knobs and speaker to complete it. The

The other one is my best Philco, a 501X from 1934. Phono is 33 and 78 rpm
That 42 is one sweet output tube!

Remember Ward Cleaver's hi-fi from Leave It To Beaver? Here's a fair screen capture of June playing a record on it. It has no receiver in it, was available with and without that year. General Electric "Canterbury", 1961. I'm looking for one preferably with the radio and Vacu-Magic tone arm.

Here's a 1960 GE stereo console that I rebuilt for a customer a few years ago.
It has a Voice of Music changer with a Sonotone cartridge and a new rubber idler pulley.
All new caps in the amp and speaker crossovers and all new tubes. Has Aux inputs and a tape loop!
