Recently repaired radios and Testimonials

Telefunken Bajazzo Sport, portable radio

Hi, Tony,

The radio was delivered yesterday but I was not home to receive it .I wasn’t even expecting it for a few more days. Great surprise. I picked it up first thing this morning. Tony, your work is perfection! .

Thank you so much for your attention to even the smallest detail and for the great and timely communications. I think that the radio works better now than when I got it 48 years ago. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is in need of your unique services. Thank you again. Great work.

Kindest regards, Tom Pulver Highland Park, Illinois May 12/ 2012

Loewe Opta radio chassis


I picked up the radio at the post office yesterday, the packing was very secure and I installed it sounds great. It has been many years since I had the chance to hear the FM on the unit All the crackling sounds that I would hear soon as I touched any of the controls are gone. I hope you don't retire soon because I have no doubt there are many people like me who would like to keep these old radios going.

Thanks again for the patience that went above and byond competence, required to correct the many errors of the incompent who did more damage than good to the radio in the past.

Cheers , Patrick Carriere Les Cedras, QC, Canada

Nordmende Othello radio

Hi Tony. Just a quick note to say THANKS! for the great job you did refurbishing my Nordmende Othello radio. It is a family heirloom so it will always be special. The sound is fantastic, warm and clear, just as I remember it. I am listening to it as I type this. I've already recommended you to some friends. Much appreciated!

My apologies for not writing to you sooner. I have been very busy with travel and now a new job (and telephone number).Yes, the radio arrived on time and in beautiful condition.

I had forgotten how wonderful the sound is on these radios. And, thank you for the antenna. It makes a big difference, especially where we are located.Everyone comments on the radio and I tell them the story of finding you and our Czech "connections. "Thank you so much for everything.

1959 Nordmende Tanhauser

Hello Tony;

The radio, Nordmende Tannhauser model that you have restored, is working like a new radio. The sound is superior to the sound of today’s technology. The station selection is working fine, tone selection with any of the controllers is working great.

I want to thank you for the fine work and professional approach. The trip to your place was worth the time and drive. Please do not retire, the folks with vintage radios need you. Best Regards, John Fedak

Hello Tony,

I made it home ok with my 1924 Atwater Kent breadboard radio and hooked it all up.I'm very pleased to say that it works like brand new.You did a fantastic job bringing it back to life.

Philco Model 40-190

Hi Tony-The radio's back together again & works great!!I can't believe the quality of sound out of theold thing.The cabinet must have been designed for that sound quality because it sounds totally different with the chassis In than Out.The bass sounds like a modern receiver when tuned in to a station.(CKOC 1150 - Hamilton)Sent a couple of pictures & will keep in touch.

Thanks, Jim Halonen, Orangeville, Ontario °°°°°Sept 23/2007
