ATC VK-5 Kinet

The Kinet was designed as a "slave" receiver, connected to a master receiver which had the majority of the electronic components. The Kinet has only 4 tubes: two 4 pin 879s, one 57, and one 5 pin with no markings. One of the uses for the Kinet was to be in department stores, where several were to be installed to advertise products.

The set uses a 5 inch CRT with an 8 pin base, with a magnifying lens. Here are photos of the only know surviving set:
