Spluch points to this photo of the world’s first transistor radio from Michaeljpro… It’s funny Sony still uses names like this for all their products… “Regency TR-1, the world’s 1st commercially released transistor radio – went on sale in the fall of 1954. This cabinet colour was called “madarin red”. Also came in black, cloud grey and ivory. Link. Also check out Michael’s complete collect (over 500!) here – Link.

    I fondly remember my five transistor Emerson. It was the size of a paving brick.
