Here is a nice (and rare) Philco 214 speaker to go with your 514.

That's quite the disclaimer statement the seller makes.

Wow! Beautiful speaker.

I almost want to buy it and wait for a 514 to come along!

Since finding the 514 just last year I wasn't gonna let this get away,probably the only one I'll ever see.Price was a bit high but what can you do when there's only one to buy? 8)

I'm glad you got it. When it arrives, maybe you could post a photo of it together with your 514.

That is Philco Fan-tastic! :D

Two speakers and one radio to go... Then you're going to need to display them in their own separate space...

It's sort of like having all 3 Stratospheres... But since it's 10 pieces instead of 3, it's got to be at least 3 times as difficult to achieve. I admire your perseverance. Hats off!

It will be quite a while before a 213 speaker shows up,I have a forever ad in the Classifieds but I'm not holding my breath.
I don't believe the 515/215 even exists but I heard a rumor one of Ron Ramirez's friends has one.I believe the one in the book is a fake.
