Notes

The Radiolette 27 is a 5 valve reflexed superhet with IF 175 kHz: 78 as RF amp, 6A7 as oscillator/1st det., 6B7 reflexed IF amp/2nd detector, AVC rectifier and audio amp., 42 output and 80 rectifier. There is also an AWA Radiolette 47 as console with the same chassis as the table model 27 (with a loudspeaker of 8" diameter). The Radiolette has a "local-distance" switch at the rear of the chassis for reducing overload in strong signal areas.

This was the first time the tuning capacitor frame was insulated from the chassis. Possibly to save two AVC bypass capacitors. This remained a feature for Radiolettes  until 1937.

The Radiolette Model 27’s wooden cabinet was designed along Art Deco lines which was popular in the early 1930’s. Air King in the US designed models along these lines in 1933 with the Skyscraper 52 as an example. This design was continued in this radio and in Bakelite with the “Empire State” series of radios manufactured between 1934 and 1937 starting with Radiolette Model 28.

CAUTION! Asbestos is used to line one side of the can holding the two B+ capacitors.
