Olympic model 6-606 portable tube radio, now running off batteries, and playing a vintage playlist off of an ipod




Now i have my tube 'boom box' ready for music anywhere.

I had to build a replacement battery pack for the two type B and the two type A battery packs (90V and 9V respectively). This battery pack contains 16 batteries total; 10 9V's and 6 size C. It costs about $30 in batteries alone to run this radio! lol



But it is worth it because now we are ready to rock with tube sound anywhere....

Cheers! Thanks for following,
Greg
