Tube Lineup: 12BE6, 12BA6, 12AV6, 50C5, 35W4
This salmon-color Arvin shows the sheer simplicity in both electronic and classic cabinet design during the fifties. The electronics are based on the commonplace AA5 circuit but with the miniature 7-pin tube lineup. All the components were mounted on a printed circuit board. By the fifties, PCBs have emerged as the favored, inexpensive, and lightweight option for assembling electronic components over the old-fashioned chassis with point-to-point wiring. What could have taken hours to wire by hand could be etched on a PCB in minutes.
