Crosley Cathedral Radio CD - CR32CD
The Cathedral radio, introduced in 1932, is one of the most widely recognized designs of all antique radios. It has quite simply been dubbed the "Cathedral" or is sometimes referred to as the "Gothic." This remarkably rich replica is outfitted with an arched, veneered top. Applied solid wood moldings are hand-rubbed to perfection using Crosley's same unflinching standards. Its smooth round edges, woven grill cloths, detailed framework and antiqued bronze face plate lend an air of authenticity to this time-honored Crosley that features a programmable CD player with LED display. Crosley's Cathedral radio is much like the original, but with the conveniences of present-day technology.
In 1920 Powel Crosley founded the company that pioneered radio broadcasting and mass market manufacturing around the world. Dismayed with the $130 price tag for the radio receiver he promised to buy for his son’s birthday, Crosley decided to make his own. Upon successfully building a working set for only $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential. It was a simple idea - design a fully functioning radio, meticulously craft each unit with obsessive detail and precise accuracy, and of course add a measure of consideration for the wallet.
Today the Crosley name lives on with superbly detailed replicas that truly transcend time. Reintroductions of original vintage radios and turntables feature the newest technologies graced by unforgettable Crosley stylings. The Crosley Collection includes AM/FM radios, portable suitcase - styled record players and turntables, record changers, multi- functional audio cassette/compact disc players, jukeboxes, music boxes, telephones and more. Rich lines, retro designs and authentic crafting have made Crosley today’s premier vintage electronics manufacturer. True to the Crosley tradition, these replicas are as fabulous as they are functional, providing a delightful dose of nostalgia.
