This design made the headlines when David Bowie’s own model sold recently. If you missed out on that, you can now buy a reissued Brionvega Radiofonografo rr226 record player. Read more
Back in 2008, this was actually reissued in updated form for the modern market and available to buy at the Conran Shop. However, we’ve just checked and that is no longer the case. On the plus side, this original 1960s Brionvega RR 126 audio system is available – and for half the price of the reissue.
Most still aren't what you call cheap, but the stunning Brionvega range is now discounted at Fab and well worth a browse.
The seller doesn't give much away in his description, so let us tell you that this is a 1960s Brionvega FD 1102 chrome radio.
As stylish as they come, it was designed by Marco Zanusso and Richard Sapper in 1969, with this particular model described as being in 'mint condition' and according to the seller, has probably never been used. It's sold as 'untested', so we don't know if those presets and volume controls on this chrome-clad radio work – if it's 'as new', we would presume so, but it's a shame the seller couldn't just turn it on before pitching it on eBay.
With a volatage adjuster included so it will function in the UK, Europe and USA, it's a steal right now at just £1 – especially for a radio that's long been out of production.
