One dial (primary tuning control knob). The D-10 is a 4-tube reflex receiver, using a crystal detector. Either Frank Squire or William Priess (the self-proclaimed "father of reflex") developed the D-10, although Gernsback gives credit for the invention of reflex to Marius Latour. In the D-10, two tubes have both RF and audio amplification functions. So, the receiver performs as a 6-tube radio (three stages of RF amplification and three stages of audio amplification) seven if the detector is considered. Reflexing is a rather sophisticated electrical design technique, since the interstage RF and audio transformers are arranged so that a single tube can perform two functions. For more information see "Antique Radio Classified" Volume 14, August 1997.
