  1. John A Gagnon

    The quality was 5 stars, it’s a work of art. It absolutely met my expectations. Moreover, it arrived within a few days of ordering. No small feat considering it shipped from France.

    We absolutely love the radio- also the booklet you sent with it was very informative and made us feel connected to the radio and it’s past. What you are doing to give new life to these beautiful machines is really special. Thank you so much again!

    Arrived very quickly from France, even after a short customs delay! It was well protected and packaged. It works just as described and looks gorgeous! It’s great sound for a bedroom or office.

    “My wife and I fell in love with this model! We hoped it would be perfect for our home but it seemed too good to be true. We did quite a bit of research and found that not only were there very few of this particular radio out there, but similar ones that had sold for more were in significantly worse condition. The description on the piece was absolutely spot on and the next challenge was how to get it all the way to Australia with problematic delays due to covid. Fortunately John came up with an amazing solution. The piece was packed amazingly. The ride must have been rough as one of the bolts had come loose enough to fall off during transit (easily rectified!); however due to the diligent packing it came 100% intact! This beautiful example of French art deco object d’art is now a centrepiece of our living room. John and Nico were extremely helpful to deal with and went the extra mile to make sure the whole thing was as easy as possible. John even threw in a WIFI box to allow us to connect another radio. Highly recommended you talk to TSF to acquire your fully functional heirloom!”

    C’est magique. Refaire vivre mes 33t me procure un immense plaisir d’autant que le son en Wi-Fi qui sort dans mes enceintes n’a évidemment rien à voir avec le son du haut parleur de l’appareil, même si celui-ci est appréciable. Très satisfait de mon achat.

    « John is the pillar of customer service! I just purchased my 5th antique radio from him, amazing items and a fantastic gentleman to deal with. If you are in the States and are hesitant about the distance from France, don’t be, he does a fantastic job of packing the item. Thank you as always John. »

    « The radio was in amazing condition. The Seller communicated with me from purchase to delivery. The quality of craftsmanship was very high and the radio was kept as original as possible. The only drawback for me was that the Bluetooth system doesn’t have the best quality sound. It’s a bit flat sounding, but that’s to be expected with a digital amplifier. Overall I’m happy with my purchase and everything the seller promised is there. I’ll be using the radio more for decoration purposes than anything. »

    « Theses french radios are the most beautiful i have ever seen, and to be restored with bluetooth/wi-fi technology with no compromise makes them that much better. Everyone has said they have never seen anything like them and i agree. John is an absolute pleasure to deal with, amazing communication, care in shipping (from France to Arizona) and just a really nice guy. Do not hesitate to purchase if debating it, you will have an almost one-of-a-kind piece. Hope to purchase another soon, the radio/record player combo. Cannot say enough AAA++++ all the way, thank you John! »

    « Fabulous piece! With people opting for 60’s consoles I was able to get the same but in a more compact size for my space. And the appearance is much more appealing! The shipping was outstanding! I’d use DHL anytime shipping internationally! And John’s care in packing was superb! »
