Technical information

This was the first production color set from CBS. It used the 15HP22 CRT, which is similar to the 15GP22 used in most other 1954 model sets. At this time CBS had lost the war over color standards, so this set operates on the NTSC (RCA) color system.  Another RX-90 was donated to the museum recently.
