According to the article below, Sony released the TR-2K one month after the TR-55 was launched: ... index.html

The Sony TR-2K was sold as a kit and it was found that consumers had problems assembling the TR-2K. Anyone have a Sony TR-2K? - Mark

No TR-2K, I wish. FWIW, I have one of these, also sold as a kit, probably just as rare but does not have the panache of the early Sony models.
It is also from the Land of the Rising Sun, they were too cheap to include a volume control. lol

I had a Hinode complete kit in the box, but didn't have the heart to assemble it, and ruin the un-built value, so I sold it. I've often thought that that was a mistake. It was reportedly able to compete with 6 Transistor radios, due to it's extensive circuitry. Here's a scan of one; The round trimmer to the bottom left of the tuner apparently gave it increased sensitivity.
