Additional information 

These nice, uncomplicated little sets were sold as a 2nd radio in the '60-s; for use in e.g. the bedroom, or kitchen. Transistors were already available, but expensive. The use of tubes and the plastic cabinet helped to keep the price low. Simple as they were, the sound quality was, and still is, surprisingly good. 

The B1X42, was produced in various different colour schemes.
