842-SX's cabinet's styling, dial, and variable voltage inputs were
intended to appeal more to the European market then the American
market. The overall performance was far superior to that of
the typical American table model radio offered at that time.
Each band on the set has a trimmer and a padder adjustment on each
of the R.F., Mixer, and Oscillator stages. The two I.F.
transformers, which are triple tuned, makes for very sharp tuning
and the push - pull 6F6G audio outputs give the radio a strong, yet
warm bassy sound. I bought this set at the 1990 AWA / Michigan
Antique Radio Meet which ran for two days in Lansing,
Michigan. A local family pulled into the shows parking lot at
the last hour of the shows first day and before they could unload
the radio out of the car, I bought it.
