audio 310 anthracite & kan­ga­roo

The Braun audio 310 anthracite looks very attrac­tive com­pared to the more com­mon­ly known white mod­el. Com­bined with orig­i­nal Braun speak­ers L500 or L420/1 in black or anthracite, this ear­ly 70’s stereo is a per­fect design object. You achieve muse­um-like qual­i­ty, when placed on the Vit­soe Kan­ga­roo HiFi side board of design­er leg­end Dieter Rams. This hi-fi table fea­tures an alu­minum frame with a dark grey lam­i­nat­ed press board. The tech­ni­cal and opti­cal con­di­tion of the bun­dle shown here is very good (A). There are some minor stains, but the com­plete sys­tem is tech­ni­cal­ly reviewed and in absolute­ly sat­is­fy­ing con­di­tion.

vit­soe kan­ga­roo, 1967

The Kan­ga­roo hi-fi side table was designed in 1967 by Dieter Rams and is a per­fect fit for 60s and 70s Braun audio stereo sys­tems. The design of the alu­mini­um frame of the Kan­ga­roo has sig­nif­i­cant sim­i­lar­i­ties with Vit­soe Zapf 601 RZ60 and 602 chairs. These chairs are very rare in mint con­di­tion. RZ 60 chairs from the late 60s obtain top prices, like the Kan­ga­roo, which also is a much sought after design object and hard to find (20,3 x 38,6 x 12,6 inch).

Put the nee­dle on the record

The built-in turntable mod­el PS 430 X in the audio 310 stereo is a stun­ning piece of craft­man­ship. The nice­ly designed tone arm has a lift, for the first time ever in Braun turnta­bles, and an auto­mat­ic switch-off at the end of the record. This is the main dif­fer­ence to the audio 300, where you don’t find both of these fea­tures. Usu­al­ly there is a Shure car­tridge in the head­shell, the sty­lus can still be ordered nowa­days. After a tech­ni­cal main­te­nance ser­vice, done in a qual­i­fied spe­cial­ists work­shop, these turnta­bles work like they did on day one and will do for decades. Here you find the orig­i­nal Braun sty­lus track­ing force gauge.

FM stereo radio

The receiv­er of the Braun audio 310 has sev­er­al bands. The out­dat­ed Short­wave, Medi­umwave and Long­wave are accom­pa­nied by a sep­a­rat­ed FM stereo sec­tion. There is a field inten­si­ty meter and a stereo indi­ca­tor lamp, which give the FM sec­tion a com­plete look.

Braun Audio FM AM Antenna Connector

When con­nect­ed to a good anten­na, the qual­i­ty of the radio recep­tion is great. You can con­nect to cable also.

Is a Braun audio 310 net­work ready?

With its 5‑pin DIN con­nec­tors the Braun audio 310 offers two addi­tion­al inputs for stereo sig­nals. One is a tape input, the oth­er is called ‘reserve’. What­ev­er the design­er have thought of, they’ve made a good deci­sion by adding these two more inputs. You can eas­i­ly con­nect your CD-Play­er or your smart­phone via a cinch adapter or a 3,5 mm jack to the braun audio 310. A com­mon blue­toooth adapter makes a wire­less input pos­si­ble, allow­ing for music stream­ing from the Inter­net.
