Comment: Cabinet available in walnut or oak finish. On the tube layout sheet, Canadian Marconi  opted to show the tube types 35W4 and 35C5 as being in the same envelope. Since both of these types are half wave rectifiers, that means that either tube type could be ffound at this position.  It is also noted  that this is a trsnformerless set, yet Marconi stated " 60 cycle only" operation.
