eBay watch: Braun Atelier 1-81 radio and stereo record player by Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams

Braun

This site isn't knocked up randomly you know – having just flagged up the excellent Braun design book, we have one the company's finest designs – the Braun Atelier 1-81 radio and stereo record player by Hans Gugelot and Dieter Rams.

It could be one of the most stylish audio system ever made and yes, some of the functionality of this early 60s system isn't exactly 2009 (no iPod connectivity for sure), but it should fit effortlessly into any home.

It's in full working order and excellent condition, although the electrics might need sorting out for your country (it's selling out of Germany). You'll also need some speakers too. Which makes the £600 asking price a little rich. Saying that, it is a classic piece of design, unlikely to ever be remade. Looking at it that way, the Braun Atelier 1-81 could be a shrewd investment for the future.
