SEE THE ITT SCHAUB-LORENZ TINY 109B AT THE RADIO MUSEUM

http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/itt_tiny_109b.html

Ask the average British person to name the "best" German transistor radio maker and 9 out of 10 will say Grundig, and indeed Grundig is the only German radio maker many people could name. But ask the same question in Germany and you will provoke a fierce debate between Grundig, Telefunken, Nordmende, and ITT SCHAUB-LORENZ. And for many particularly in the general listening catagory the best German brand is ITT .

ITT's, have the reputation of being beautifully designed and made, reliable, and for outstanding sound, and tuning performance.

And here in the UK an ITT is quite rare, so you will have something of a conversation piece.

This ITT is from 1974, and is the Tiny 109B model. The name Tiny is a misnomer. This is not a big radio but niether is it Tiny, and it is big where it matters in performance. This is a straightforward, compact, high quality 4 band mains/battery portable. It is simple to use and operate but lacks nothing in terms of tuning ability and great sound quality.

The Tiny 109B has LW/MW/FM/SW and with these 4 bands plus great tuning sensitivity it will get an effective signal from many stations a lesser radio would fail to detect.

For a 35 year old radio this ITT is in outstanding used condition with just some light marks and scuffs but overall looks very smart. The radio works perfectly on batteries (6 x C cells- not supplied) or mains via its detachable mains lead (supplied) requiring a 220/240v input.

I am providing a good range of clear photos so you can see the completeness, originality and condition of this radio for yourself.

The cabinet, tuning dial and controls are all very good, and the radio responds to the volume control smoothly and progressively. The aerial is original straight and true, and retracts and extends fully.

 This is a good example of a desirable vintage radio, suitable for the collector wanting a nice example, or equally anyone who wants a high quality vintage portable that will look good in any setting, and provide real listening pleasure.

At a fraction of the price of a new DAB radio that will have trouble matching its sound and style, this rare little radio could be said to be quite a bargain!

WHY" BUY IT NOW"

I list on a "BUY IT NOW" basis. I am unconvinced that auctions are a good buying experience.

You are obliged to "watch" something you want to buy for up to 10 days. Then, to stand a chance of winning you often have to set a date to be at your computer to enter a last minute bidding lottery, usually at an inconvenient time.

You end either dissapointed or concerned you have paid too much! Surely life is too short.

If you see something you like, and are happy with the price you should be able to secure it immediately.

No fuss. No problems.

BEWARE EBAY BARGAINS

The majority of vintage radios for sale on ebay are very poorly listed , sometimes deliberately. You have little chance of knowing exactly what you are buying from a single out of focus photo, and a brief description usually saying something like "untested as I dont have a battery". This will usually mean the bargain buy radio you end getting does not work and may be cosmetically challenged. In short it becomes an expensive mistake that niether looks or sounds "right".

It is possible that you will find examples of this radio apparently selling for less in some ebay auctions. But with this radio you know exactly what you are going to get. I have provided a comprehensive range of good clear photos, and a detailed accurate description. The radio will have been cleaned and fully checked before despatch. I offer a full refund in the event the radio does not match the description.

The price of the radio is set at a level in relation to auction prices of similar radios in similar codition where possible. Vintage radios that work and that are in good condition offer tremendous value for money. They are collectible, useable, and enjoyable, may well hold or increase in value, and available at a fraction of the cost of a new radio.

This vintage radio is just a lovely thing to have. Buy It Now.

I think it is fair to expect payment more or less immediately following purchase. If your payment is going to be delayed, please contact me to explain and I may be happy to accept the delay.


I ship vintage radios worldwide. Most parcelled portable sets will weigh between 2kg to 4kg and fit a 40x30x20cm package. You can use the following table to see courier airmail shipping rates for such a 4KG parcel to sample destinations. EU - £16.50: USA/CANADA - £30: JAPAN/Australia/Asia - £45: SOUTH AFRICA - £52: These rates are for an airmail courier service delivering usually within 5 days. For smaller lighter radios, or if you are prepared to accept surface package mail the cost may be much reduced. I ONLY CHARGE ACTUAL RATES AND YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME FOR A SPECIFIC QUOTE BEFORE BUYING UNLESS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE GENERAL COST ADVICE ABOVE. COMBINED POSTAGE I am happy to combine postage costs for packages of 2 or more radios. I will research the best rate and charge at cost.


I really do try to make sure you are delighted with your purchase from me. I always leave feedback for the buyer, and its always good to have it confirmed you are happy with your purchase from me. So please leave feedback.


We are Peter and Judy and we live in the Worcestershire countryside. We buy all those things we need or want, and sell things we no longer need. I am also an avid collector and restorer of vintage portable radios, and have a collection of around 200 sets. I tend to be tempted to buy many more than I can possibly keep, and sell on duplicate and surplus sets to make room for more! The time I spend restoring and checking radios for sale is rarely recovered in the sale price. You benefit from my enthusiasm! I always try to provide a good range of clear pictures and a detailed accurate description so you know exactly what you are buying.


You can contact me via the "contact seller" link on the listing. Alternatively feel free to call me on 07771 736267 or email on peterkinnaird@sky.com I am more than happy to answer your questions.
