It is full restored which included also a complete cabinet restoration and finish in a unique italy pine color touch and satin glossy finish.
About the Freudenstadt 16: It carries 2 x ECLL800 Amps, these amp tubes are tested and have a fine emission. Just look the prices for original Lorenz ECLL800 amp tubes here in ebay then you know what kind of tubes these match pairs are. The Radio has a crystal clear and excellent sound profile , additional does it have an FM automatic fine tuning which you can switch off if you want.
The real FM Stereo Decoder is also included and it will turn on automatic once the radio got a station which reception is strong enough to listen it in Stereo.

ABOUT THE RESTORATION:
As you see on the Photos , a Radio Restoration did cost us a lot of time and work. The Cabinet restoration is a real restoration ( we are doing these restoration jobs for our intenrational clients of Art Deco furnitures ) means there is no Tung Oil polished on the cabinet. There is also not one little scratch on the cabinet. As you read above the coloring of the cabinet is done in the original method , this means a sprayed wooden stain which is difficult to mix inside the clear coat which covers the cabinet. The color is unique of this cabinet in italy pine.
Electronics are restored, tested and radio works fine (view the video link in the listing) in all Bands.
Below you find a detailed Report of the restoration we have done to this fine radio..
