This radio is nick-named the "Zephyr"
because of its streamlined, machine age
styling, right the way down to its bullet
shaped aerodynamic knobs. Surpris-
ingly, the loudspeaker faces out the left
side, rather than the front. Personally, I
find that radios having this characteris-
tic sound muffled when compared to
those having forward facing speakers.

The Majestic 5A410 is an ac/dc power-
ed all-American-five that covers the
standard broadcast band. Tubes used
are 12SA7, 12SK7, 12SQ7, 50L6GT
and 35Z5GT. I recently serviced this
radio. It needed re-capping and a repl-
acement 35Z5GT and 50L6GT. The
35Z5GT that came with it had an inter-
mittent internal short that revealed itself
by blowing the pilot light! The 50L6GT
was weak, having been overloaded as
a result of positive grid bias applied to it
through a leaking coupling capacitor.
With these issues taken care of and the
alignment peaked up, the radio now
plays nicely.
