BRAUN SK55 Vintage Record Player w/ AM-FM Radio

This is an absolute beauty.

Vintage 1960s Braun Record phonograph and 3 band radio with a tube amplifier in fully working and good looking condition. Designed by Dieter Rams and Hans Gugelot, it's an industrial design & audio milestone. This music system was part of the traveling exhibit "Less and More: The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams" and is part of the permanent collection of MoMA. The player has been professionally restored replacing capacitors and resistors as needed to reduce hum, get good radio reception and play records correctly. All tubes were tested good for good emission. Control pots have been sprayed so they are quiet when turned. A new phonograph needle was installed.
