Introduction
This teardown comes with a bit of a history lesson :) [ … ] Here's a '''Sony TR-63 transistor radio''' - I forgot I had one until reminded of it by the ifixit Sony teardown promotion. If we're going to tear down Sony consumer gadgets, why not start with one of the earliest? [ … ] The TR-63 was introduced in 1957 - it was the first "pocket-sized" transistor radio ever made and the first Sony-branded product exported to North America, by the then-named Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo company (Tokyo Telecommuncations Engineering Corporation). It became a huge commercial success. [ … ] It seems "pocket-sized" was a bit of a marketing gimmick at the time - although smaller than any competing product, the TR-63 was a bit too big to fit into a standard shirt pocket sopocket. So story has it that company salesmen wore custom-made shirts with slightly bigger pockets to show off the TR-63's small size. But unlike desktop radios of the day which were promoted under the idea of "a radio in every home", the TR-63 was uniquely marketed as something each person could own and carry with them. A foreshadowing of the Walkman and iPod, perhaps? [ … ] The TR-63 contains a whopping 6 transistors.++6 transistors++. By comparison, the Cell processor chip in the PS3 contains two to three hundred million''million'' transistors. That's an indication of the progress made in the electronics industry in the past 50+ years!50 years. [ … ] In Japan the TR-63 sold for 13,800 yen, and the original export price was U$39.95. It was available in 4 colours (yellow, red, green and black). [ … ] Follow along with this teardown to get a look into an important piece of consumer electronics history.
