Apex Audiotron was one of the earlier companies to be singled out, and sued out of existance. The fact that they chose the 'Audiotron' brand, even with the Apex added, was likely due to the Cunningham/RCA relationship. When Cunningham stopped making tubes, perhaps Apex thought they wouldnt protect the brand. RCA's lawyers were quite happy to file lawsuits against them in late 1924.
