An Antique Receiver for the Shack – Premier Ensemble

Acquired a bit of 1920’s Memorabilia for my Office, sourced from Neil WK9Q through one of his many eBay Auctions.

The receiver says Premier Ensemble on the front panel.

Its tube line-up includes: Two Cunningham CX-301-A tubes, two Arcturus 101A tubes (the beautiful dark blue tubes) and a Radiotron UX-201A.

Neither Neil WK9Q or I has any idea if the receiver works, or even if it could even be set working.

I’m hoping I can restore the receiver to life, and would greatly appreciate any information about the radio or the tubes anyone has.

Worst case is it will just have to “look pretty” on a shelf or become part of another project!
