1923 by Radio Corporation of America (R.C.A.)to replace the 1922 two box set
consisting of Radiola Senior (Detector) and the Radiola AC (Two Stage

one box. It was an attempt to bring the price of the two box set totaling $138.00
plus tubes, down to $85.00 plus tubes for
the Radiola-RS Single box set. It was
marketed for a short time but did not sell well. Their numbers sold were Few (
only 4,613 were made) when compared to the numbers of the two box sets.

better marketing success.
