The Radiola "V" is the same as the GE AR-1300
& AA-1400 mounted on a wood base with a finished wood top. It
consist of a crystal receiver using the "Perikon
Detector" plus a 3 tube detector amplifier.
When the detector/amplifier is powered up and the headphones
are disconnected form the tuner/receiver, it become a 3 tube
regenerative receiver capable of driving a loudspeaker. Without
the detector amplifier, the tuner/ receiver section serves as a
stand alone crystal receiver.

V, AR-885 witch requires a UV-200 and two UV201 vacuum tubes. The
later version (AR-885-A) is made to be operated with UV-199's.
