Reducing costs by reducing tube count without sacrificing performance can be accomplished by using new technology. This set uses the 6B5 dual triode which was introduced in 1935. Essentially 2 tubes in 1, the 6B5 is used as an two stage audio amplifier allowing higher gain without an additional tube. 1935 saw “airplane dials” (circular dials with double pointers) start replacing the older “window” dials. In 1922 Crosley started radio station WLW which, in 1934, would become the most powerful station in the country (500,000 watts). In 1935 Crosley introduced the “Roamio”, the first car radio. 1930s Crosley Radio is a beautiful vintage piece that will add character to any room.
