make / manufacturer: KLH

Classic Advent Model 400 FM Receiver with Model 400 Acoustic Suspension Speaker by Henry Kloss (KLH) with great sound in excellent working condition. Made in USA.
MATCHING SERIAL NUMBERS !This radio was known for it's high end components and was state of the art for FM radios in it's class. It's now a valued collectors item for audiophiles.
The model 400 radio was a rousing success, even though it sold for $125 in 1974!
it is considered to be a classic in industrial design. They are still in use today.
Like nearly all of these vintage radios the plastic case has some yellowing. The Advent 400, is a great classic FM-only radio by Henry Kloss after he left KLH. It is solid state but reminiscent of Kloss's first radio--the KLH Model Eight which featured an FM receiver with his signature vernier tuning dial in one box and a separate acoustic suspension speaker.
