The 8 inch screen size all transistor Sony TV 8-301W was introduced in 1960 and was the first TV ever made by Sony. Here it is receiving Moroccan DXTV from Casablanca on Ch M10,211.25MHz around 500KM distant. The small case on the back is for 2 6volt. lead acid batteries! There's no contrast control as such but an RF Gain setting(no AGC) which is one of the knobs on the back.Production of the set stopped in 1962,being replaced by a smaller model around a year later.
