c.1957 Braun "transistor 1"

Braun's first radio incorporating transistors, a hybrid 4-tube/3-transistor radio. Braun's first all-transistor radio was the seven-transistor T2, released in 1958. A later, all-transistor radio that again makes use of this same cabinet, the c.1961 Braun T23, is found on this site, as well as Braun's first all-transistor "pocket" radio, the 1958 T3.
