[Emerson CU-265]
Emerson CU-265, 1940

Tube complement: 12J5GT 1st RF, 12K7GT 2nd RF, 12SF5GT detector, 50L6GT audio output, 35Z5GT rectifier.

Approximately 8-1/4 inches / 21 cm wide.

This radio's five-tube TRF circuit is unusual.  By 1940, TRF circuits were generally used only in the cheapest radios, and they were all  four-tube TRFs with only one RF-amplifier stage.  This radio's extra RF stage gives it sensitivity and selectivity that approaches the superheterodyne All American Five.
