Salora 1000 V, 1953-54

Large, furniture-like and relatively expensive radio receivers were typical in the 1950’s. Salora 1000V was a luxury super receiver, “the king of radios” (76cm x 46cm x 31cm). It had 12 tubes and three loudspeakers. According to an advertisement it filled “the needs of the most demanding of radio listeners and was loved and praised by music lovers”. The receiver was very expensive: 56500 Fmk. Because of the price the model never became a success and Salora only manufactured 1000 of them.
