braun audio 310 anthracite

Braun audio 310. The flag­ship from the ear­ly 70s. The last of its kind. Designed by Dieter Rams. For col­lec­tors and sound enthu­si­asts, these stereo systems with the 60s design are the non plus ultra, because they are absolute­ly com­pet­i­tive with today’s devices and also bring the full util­i­ty val­ue in every­day life. Care­ful­ly restored, this vari­ant with anthracite-col­ored ruf­fle var­nish is in no way infe­ri­or to the white braun audio 310. The Braun audio 310 becomes a source of dai­ly plea­sure when, in addi­tion to the visu­al plea­sure, the tech­ni­cal per­fec­tion and amaz­ing sound qual­i­ty are convincing.

braun audio 310 anthracite & L 625 black

When the Braun audio 310 in anthracite is also con­nect­ed to the cor­re­spond­ing speak­ers in black, this stereo system designed in the 60s and built until the ear­ly 70s becomes a per­fect design­er piece. The mid-sized speak­ers L 625 are the best that Braun built around 1972. In this com­bi­na­tion you have the most pow­er­ful and best sound­ing ver­sion from Braun.

From the Braun orig­i­nal speak­ers L 625 comes a pow­er­ful, grip­ping sound, which under­goes a cer­tain com­pres­sion. This results in a closed, well-drawn and warm sound image, which for the con­nois­seur is the typ­i­cal Braun sound. The L 625 is suit­able for small to medi­um-sized rooms.

braun speak­ers L 625 black

These state-of-the-art loud­speak­ers start­ed in 1974. The L 625 is con­struct­ed iden­ti­cal with mod­el L 620/1. The crossover, the midrange dome and the dome tweet­er are the same as in L620/1. The only dif­fer­ence is the mod­i­fied sub­woofer, which garanties for volu­mi­nous low fre­quen­cies. It’s indi­cat­ed pow­er range is 50 Watt, com­pared to only 30 Watt of the L620/1. So the L 625 can be played loud­er. It has an addi­tion­al 2 inch midrange dome, which results in a more trans­par­ent sound than L 500 and L 600, which come with just a sin­gle one inch dome tweet­er. The unique design char­ac­ter­is­tics are the smooth round­ed cor­ners and the per­fo­rat­ed alu­mini­um front grid. Often the grid is dent­ed and the lack of the cab­i­net has sig­nif­i­cant scratch­es, mak­ing Braun loud­speak­ers from the 70’s look dread­ful. After 40 years the foam beads of the L 625 sub­woofer are bro­ken into pieces. Per­fect speak­ers in mint con­di­tion and ide­al­ly with pro­fes­sion­al­ly renewed foam beads are hard to find.

In the sev­en­ties a wide range of loud­speak­er sizes were offered for Braun’s com­pact stereo systems. The iden­ti­cal L 425 and L 420 are the small­est avail­able speak­ers in Dieter Rams design. They were man­u­fac­tured between 1970 and 1974 and pro­duce a sur­pris­ing­ly full sound. The unique design char­ac­ter­is­tic is the per­fo­rat­ed alu­mini­um front grid and also the smooth round­ed cor­ners of the speak­er cab­i­net.

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. This is the main dif­fer­ence to the audio 300, where you don’t find this fea­ture. Usu­al­ly there is a Shure car­tridge in the head­shell, the sty­lus can still be ordered nowa­days. The auto­mat­ic switch-off at the end of the record is very com­fort­able. After a tech­ni­cal main­te­nance ser­vice, done in a qualified spe­cial­ists work­shop, the turntable works like it did on day one and will do for decades. Here you find the orig­i­nal Braun sty­lus track­ing force gauge.

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 design­ers have thought of, they’ve made a good deci­sion by adding those 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 blue­toooth adapter can be con­nect­ed also, allow­ing for music stream­ing from the Inter­net. The braun audio has out­puts for two pairs of speak­ers, which is good for large rooms. The volt­age switch let’s you choose between 220 and 110 Volts, which is good for the Amer­i­can market.
