Our world is changing much faster than it seems. Literally quite recently, people learned the news only from rare travelers, from letters, then the telegraph, telephone, patefophone, radio, brought into the life of people.
Olders still remember how before people were going to the yards, brigades, neighbors, drank tea, shared news, listened to such a distant and, at the same time close, the voice of the lead, the sounds of music. Speakers knew not just by name, but tried to learn all their lives.
Then the era of television came, the first time people were also going to have a few lucky and watched TV shows. Over time, televisions appeared almost at all and people rushed in their four walls.
After that, the innovations of the technique just flee before our eyes: radiols, tape recorders, boomboxes, CD, DVD, MP3, etc. Everything rushed into wireless headphones: I turned on the music, inserted into the ears and you always in your own world, you can even look at others.
Old things, receivers, players and other trash flew to the landfill. Remember how often in the late 90s it was possible to meet the Radio Treasted Radio Tank, or Soviet, still playing, but a morally outdated radiol.
Why is it all necessary when there are more comfortable things?
So many thought and thinking.
Well, that not all.
For this race of technological innovations, infinite change of formats, many people began to understand that in those old things, in that «dusty trash» even remembering the voice of Levitan, some of his special life, his charm lies.
And gradually old radios, radiols almost stopped throwing out, and knowledgeable people, on the contrary, began to buy them hard. The fact is that there is now a splash of interest in old radio and radiols.
Radio receptions and first post-war years are very valued. The more lamps and lacquered wood — the better. If the receiver works — it is already great, and if he was standing at the grandmother under a knitted cape and was preserved at an initial form — just the perfect option.
The largest value of the «trophy radio», which were bought before the war or brought after the end of the Great Patriotic War. For a fully worker, renovated radio production of such firms as Sonnenberg, Lov, Consul, Saba, Bloupunct — the price can reach 700,000 rubles (the number of zeros is correct). Naturally, such a device will be in perfect condition.
For our WEF, symphony, Baltika, the world is paid much less, but in any case the price tags are also pleasant — from 20 to 70 thousand. On average, 30-40, which is also good, especially if such rarity is detected somewhere in the dusty chulana, on the antleesoles, attic.
But what is the most interesting, recently there are whole brigades of search engines that shake old abandoned houses, empty villages, abandoned cities and villages for such ancient objects.
A few years ago in my city, houses from a disadvantaged area were destroyed in my city — people were given apartments in nine-story buildings, and their shielded half-jammed houses went on the layer.
Literally the day after the settlement, when the abandoned houses were left unattended, their «obcronali» from the basement to the attic. After that, several very interesting ads appeared on Avito with a proposal to sell ancient radio for quite decent amounts: from 3 to 25 thousand. And this is still without restoration! Would know the former owners of these things, which value they threw.
The highest price tags now can be found not on Avito, but on IBEY. Foreign collectors buy this technique about two times more expensive.
By the way, to the Wave of High and Hobbies to the Old Radio, connected … Right Chinese. Where without them! And now everything Aliexpress is risen in the exact copies of ancient radio. Naturally, there are no lamps inside, but only the most subscriber electronics, but to buy a radio-stylized radio receiver, and even combined with a MP3 player and a Wi-Fi connection is also a good option. In the rustic kitchen in the style of Provence, it will be just stunning.
So check the dust corners on the antleesoles and the attic, it is quite possible, there is still an old receiver. Only … maybe … you do not need to sell it, fix it, give him a second life, and he will give you a means of heat, the feeling of the era.
