Brionvega 1960s-designed rr227 MP3 radio now available in the UK


Ok, you got us – the MP3 format wasn't around in the 1960s. But the Brionvega rr227 radio was – and it's now available in the UK.

We first saw this back in late 2008, a 1965 design from the hands of Zanuso and Sapper, produced to work either horizontally or vertically for your AM/FM listening pleasure.

But the new version adds something new – an MP3 player, which you can feed via miniSD card or USB, playing back MP3 or WMA digital music files. Available in red, white or black, you can finally pick it up instore or online for £185.
