This radio is a typical medium sized table type of the late 1950s, but the loudspeaker and amplifier arrangement are advanced and unconventional. 

The power amplifier is a balance amplifier with two special output tubes in series, no output transformer and high impedance loudspeaker.  This results in performance which substantially exceeds that of comparable amplifiers with transformers.
