Rogers-Majestic is a Toronto-based radio manufacturing company. Also known as Rogers Radio Tube, it was a model type tube manufacturer specializing in radios and television sets. In 1929, the company held distribution, manufacturing and trade-mark rights over Majestic Electric radios (Grigsby-Grunow Company), which was founded in 1924. In 1934, Rogers acquired Consolidated Industries Ltd as well as its subsidiaries, De Forest Radio Corp., Norge, Hammond and Consolidated Industries Products Ltd. In 1940, the business changed its name from Rogers Radio Tube to Rogers-Majestic TV. In 1941, Small Electric Motors bought the Rogers-Majestic Corp. Ltd, which later became a division of Royal Philips Electronics. Philips and Rogers-Majestic radios and TVs were made until the 1970s. 

The M7550 model was manufactured around the late 1950s. It was made from a common superheterodyne with FM and UHF wave bands. It had the usual PDyn loudspeaker made from moving coil. It showed videos in black and white and was equipped with the US FCC standard VHF tuner.
