Världens dyraste rundradio apparat?

CROSLEY RADIO CORPORATION’S 1936 “WLW MODEL
SUPER-POWER RADIO RECEIVER

In 1935, the Zenith Radio Corporation produced a stunning radio receiver
called the Stratosphere model 1000Z. The set used 25 tubes and three
loudspeakers — more than any other radio to date. An amazing (for the
time) 50 watts drove its three speakers — one 6 inch dynamic high-
frequency and two 12 inch dynamic low-frequency speakers.

Standing 50-1/2 inches tall, the Stratosphere sold for $750.00 — more than
many automobiles; in comparison, a new Ford cost $652.00. At that price,
it’s no wonder that only about 350 sets were produced during the four years
that the Stratosphere was offered.

$750.00 in 1935 is equal to $14,061.55 in 2019.
Dagens dollar kurs värde är 133 307 kronor.

TRETTIOSJU RADIO RÖR!
In its completed form, the WLW Model Super-Power Radio Receiver indeed
surpassed the Zenith Stratosphere model. It had 37 tubes, six speakers,
and 75 watts of power. Everything inside the cabinet that could be was
chromium-plated.
