Rare 1960-62 Sony TR-609 Transistor Radio. Handsome & classy in its cabinet design, this 6-transistor receiver is a very nice specimen of early transistor radio technology. Internals are free of corrosion; looks brand-new inside. A low serial number (19177) is indicative of an early model, the TR portion of TR-609 is Sony's code for "AM only".

Rare 1960-62 Sony TR-609 Transistor Radio. Handsome & classy in its cabinet design, this 6-transistor receiver is a very nice specimen of early transistor radio technology. Internals are free of corrosion; looks brand-new inside. A low serial number (19177) is indicative of an early model, the TR portion of TR-609 is Sony's code for "AM only". In good working condition, this pocket/handheld radio really pumps out good quality sound using 4AA batteries (not included). Made in Japan.

Many collectors tend to overlook this radio, possibly because it lacks the physical glamour offered by competitors like Toshiba, Zenith, Regency and others. Perhaps this is why the TR-609 is becoming a difficult radio to find: as this is being written there is not another one for sale on eBay or Etsy.

Condition: Leather (leatherette) outer case not included. Has a crack/missing a piece of outer plastic casing (as seen in photos) as well as other slight damage to case at front. Original strap is included; notice the word "SONY" on the metal strap buckle.
