Presented in 1933, Alauda is the smallest and cheapest set manufactured by Radiomarelli at that time.
Itís a reflex superheterodyne which can receive only the medium waves and the volume control operates in the antenna circuit.

The filaments of the valves are connected in series and the power supply is made by a little autotransformer which operates the mains voltage adapter also.

A lot of of these sets hasnít the power supply switch.

Alauda is conceptually similar to the Bosch mod. 402, you can see how the chassis and the speaker are similar to the ones of American radio.
