Orion "Hilton" TR6A, Honeytone 8TP-412, Jupiter 5T-210
Orion "Hilton" TR6A: 4 1/2"H x 2 1/2"W x 1 1/2"D
Jupiter 5T-210: 2 7/8"H x 4 1/2"W x 1 1/4"D
The Orion "Hilton," like the Benida on the preceeding page, is unusual for its use of two different plastic colors on its cabinet face, even if those colors are only black
The Honeytone, a.k.a, MMA 8TP-412, is an eight transistor radio probably manufactured in 1963 or '62, distinguished by its "flattened pyramid" aluminum speaker grill and the chrome or nickle TV-screen grill frame surrounding it.
The Jupiter is a five transistor radio with a cabinet design much like some of the Westinghouse and RCA "micro-table" radios, except much smaller in size.
All three models here are examples of how a radio can have eye-appeal without having any reverse plastic or bright colors.
