1958 Zenith HF1284 - just before stereo
« on: September 07, 2018, 12:59:52 PM »
Zenith HF1284 - I have two, limed oak model with E-suffix and the walnut with no changer and messed up speaker grill weave. Getting a record changer found on CL in a $10 beat-up portable near me.

These also have electrostatic tweeters like the Cantata posted. The tweets connect directly to the (PP 6V6) output transformer primary, as they need a few hundred volts to get started. 

I need to find them, both are buried in my garage and need to be moved to a new space so I remember to work on them someday :P

I have a Zenith portable with the electrostatic tweeters and not sure if they are working properly.  Can you give me an idea what I should be listening for. They sure don't sound like cone tweeters. 

Thanks Dave,

Bill
