Braun audio 310

For sound enthu­si­asts, the stereo sys­tems of the 60s and 70s are the non plus ultra, because they are absolute­ly com­pet­i­tive with today’s stere­os and have kept their full val­ue in dai­ly use. The orig­i­nal speak­ers deliv­er a catchy, pow­er­ful sound with a slight com­pres­sion. The result is a trans­par­ent, warm sound, which is remark­able and high­ly appre­ci­at­ed by Braun audio lovers. Placed on an USM medi­a­board in front of an abstract art­work by Stephan Kaluza or Ger­man Informel artist Gün­ther Toll­mann (1965) the audio 310 is a design clas­sic. The last of its kind. The flag­ship from the 70s. Designed by Dieter Rams in the 60s. This mod­el was the final edi­tion of the wide prod­uct range of com­pact stereo sys­tems with met­al frame from Braun in Frank­furt, Ger­many.

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.
