eBay watch: Rosita 1970s space age hi-fi system

Ros1

Regular readers will recall us featuring the Rosita Stereo Commander Luxus hi-fi system recently, which was a stunning space age audio system, albeit for £1,699. This Rosita space age hi-fi system is similar and from the same era – but bidding starts at just £1.

There are differences though, despite the initial similarity of looks, not least the stunning chromed, tulip-style base and that similarity of age. This one is made of painted wood for the casing, with integrated speakers and a see-through plastic lid. Vinyl playback, a cassette player and a Grundig radio, plus lots of stylish controls finish things off.

Downside? This is in 'unrestored' condition and although there's no major damage, there are some (cosmetic) things missing from the cassette player. Still, with no bids and that £1 price tag still possible, this Rosita system is well worth looking at more closely. Another image over the page or see the listing for many more.

eBay watch: 1970s space age Rosita Stereo Commander Luxus hi-fi system

Lux1

I trawl eBay most days, but I have to say, this Rosita Stereo Commander Luxus hi-fi system is one of the best audio systems I've ever seen on the site.

Made in (West) Germany by Rosita in the 1970s, it mixes period style with audio know-how. Sat on that chromed 'tulip' base is a wood unit, grey transparent cover and integrated speakers, as well as the audio functionality. That includes a Philips record player, a cassette player by the same company and a front-facing radio with slide controls. It even comes with all the relevant instruction manuals.

Hopefully the photo does it justice. if not, check out a close-up over the page or the numerous images on the listing. It's described as 'working' and 'original unrestored condition', as well as 'very-well tended'. Which probably explains the price. The seller is looking for £1,699 – or you can make an offer.
