According to my long-ago-and-far-away M31 Transistor Radios site, this Canadian version also came under the model number L1X75T/52. I no longer own that radio, so I can't check it out, but it makes me wonder if there also may have been other made-for-Canada model numbers as well. This Philips radio was also found under the Rogers Majestic brand name, manufactured and distributed by Rogers-Majestic Corporation Ltd., Canada, in partnership with Philips.

Two OC71 transistors (T5 XC black Euros) are mounted on the underside of the circuit board, and two OC72 transistors (aluminum cans) and an OC44 (Z2 XC black Euro) and two OC45s (R2 XC black Euros) are mounted on the top side of the circuit board.
