That could be one reason the second ad was created, for those who were more into quality than excess.

But, he told his engineers he wanted a ZENITH tV. one that was built to Zenith levels of quality, & also used as few of the RCA patents as possible. THIS could be why an early Zenith TV is often VERY hard to kill, & why if given half a chance, they still give excellent service. Truth or BS ?!?
I don't know about the story but the last part is definitely true. Trouble is, very few appreciate them.
