Get your high quality Canadian Electronics at “Sounds Fantastic”

After watching it a few times though I started to fixate on this “Made in Canada” Blue Optic tube from Electrohome. I couldn’t find anything about this seemingly ground-breaking new TV technology, but I did learn a little about Electrohome. They were one of Canada’s largest manufacturers of televisions from 1949 to 1984. So a lot of great Canadian TV memories were on an Electrohome.
