Introduced Feb. 1933. The series 300 models are fitted either with a large G-14-F speaker or have twin speaker G-19-B and G-19-C. Grigsby-Grunow uses here the first time their "Automatic Synchro-Silent Tuning", variing a tuning light by a reactor with 3 legs of iron core. Two legs are connected in series with the pilot light, while the winding on the center leg is connected in series with the plates of the RF First Detector, and IF tubes. An electrolytic condenser (C-5) shunts the center winding for not getting any AC if there are unbalances. They call the system also "Reactance Resonance Indicator". When a station is tuned in, an automatic bias voltage is built across Resistor R-9, causing the pilot light to dim.
Six legged console with stretcher base.
