This is for sale on Long island and I am torn. I like it... I dont like it....
The finish is meh... The cabinet is boring, but the guts seem like they will perform real nice.
It is also missing the original RP.
Whaddyathink?

That's the first and only Ansley Dynaphone that I've ever seen. Now, that's truly a rare radio. If you have the room for it, go get it. It's still a prewar console and the cabinet looks more like a Capehart or Scott then anything else. If you decide you don't want it. I'm sure you could easly sell it. I guess it all depends on how much the seller is asking for it.

Dang, that is cool in my opinion!

Yeah, sad it doesn't have the original phonograph.

I don't know what to say about the cabinet, but its possible collectors might like it for its simplicity.
Like the Teague designed Sparton Triolian 1476, I think its plain and boring like this, but they go for $$$

I have an Ansley Dynaphone D3 which is a small leatherette portable radio/phono. It all folds up into a carrying case.
Early 1930s 5 tube AM radio. It all works except for the phono head which as an open coil below the horse shoe magnet.
The radio has a huge 180 ohm candohm resistor bolted to the chassis to drop the voltage to the tubes by about 55 volts.
Tubes used are 25Z5, 43, 77 77 78 all filaments in series. It's a very unusual set. The output from the phonograph goes across a phonograph volume control with the wiper of the control going to the grid input side if the IF transformer (pretty much the B- connection).
I wish I could get the phonograph to work through the speaker but that's life.

Michael,
He is only asking $60.00 OBO so it's not the money.

Steve,
It definitely has potential.

That is a real nice Dynaphone portable. I have another Ansley like yours but it has the throwing mech. It is also in a large heavy suitcase.

We shall see!

Kirk

Are you on your way to get it, already? I would be! :lol:
Seriously, when would you find another one? Definitely worth it.

With push-pull 2A3s, it will rock! If it was closer, and I had the room, I would be tempted.

Seriously Kirk? A $60 quite uncommon 14 toober? You should be posting it in Finds and Losses, not thinking if you should :wink: . Space? You can always put it on the toilet tank in the guest bathroom. There's always space to be found :lol: .

I've never seen one Kirk. It definitely is rare. The styling is plain, but in a very modern chic look for the time. It's so worth restoring and preserving. The later phono has to go, but it shouldn't be too tough to find a period one. It also looks like there was a switch added to the front panel. All fairly easy fixes. Nice find!!!

The guy writes to me today and says "make an offer"... His listing has the price so I never thought to ask if it was a real price.
I truly deplore this type of situation. Why have a price listed if you want an offer? Grrrrr...
Now he's just trying to milk it.

He has it listed for $60?

If he asks for an offer ask if he will take $50 and see what happens.

Kirk, you should reconsider. Deal with the yellowed cabinet, & it's elegant in its simplicity. With 4 25L6's pushed by 4 25Z6's it should wake the neighbors. The phonograph parts are the same as the D10 table model, which has made appearances in Kutztown a couple of times.

After 2 weeks of wasting my time these idiots told me they were going to keep it.
I have zero patients for time wasters...

Good to see you back on Lee...

Interesting to see those little inertia dampening weights on the end of the tone arm.

Anyhow, it was really a surprise and pleasure to see you at the Farmington Hills meet! :D

Steve, good seeing you as a familiar face in that Detroit crowd
