Notes A middleclass radio from Philips. This one is not equipped with an magic-eye indicator tube, probably to keep its price low although in 1954 an EM80 electron ray tube wasn't really a very expensive extra feature for such a radio, probably Philips had to do this because their dutch customers were always willing to save some pennies if they could.
