One of a number of Braun transistor sets that made use of the original 1957 Braun tube/transistor hybrid "transistor 1" cabinet. Besides the obvious replacement of a hybrid circuit with an all-transistor circuit, this T23 model offers three short wave bands, while the "transistor 1" offered only one.
