How about RCA? I love the RCA Victor series model 110-K, and, modell 111-K for fidelity, and, reception....
Of course, if you are looking for real fidelity, I mean true hi fi, plus, great reception, by all means, the 40's Magnavox sets win hands down....

Don't overlook the quality of speakers as a factor in the sound.

Ease of parts? Actually, they are harder to get some parts for Philco, and, Zenith.
Speakers in both are also not great. Alot of rotted paper cones.
Parts for most RCA's, and, Maggies aren't any harder. It all depends on what you need in any radio.
Some need more than others.
