phono­su­per sk 4

This item was sold in 1956 for the first time, and it was a real inno­va­tion in a by huge radi­ogramo­phones dom­i­nat­ed mar­ket. This was a new-style radio-phono-com­bi­na­tion, Designed by Hans Gugelot and young Dieter Rams, who added the per­spex hood, which remind­ed Gugelot of the fairy tale ‘Snow White’s Cof­fin’. We will not know, wether this was a derog­a­tive title giv­en by Hans gugelot, but this styl­is­tic design was a ground­break­ing inter­pre­ta­tion of design for the future.

The mod­el phono­su­per SK4/1 from 1957 is com­mon­ly known as Snow White’s Cof­fin and has it’s place in the Muse­um of Mod­ern Art in New York. It was not sole­ly designed by Dieter Rams, also Hans Gugelot and Wil­helm Wagen­feld par­tic­i­pat­ed in the devel­ope­ment.

phono­su­per sk 61

Some improve­ments took place in 1962: The SK61 came with a stereo turntable and a two chan­nel ampli­fi­er. The SK 6 and the SK61 were the first stereo sys­tems of this series. The radio receiv­er was still in mono, the first stereo FM broad­cast came in 1964. Here you could con­nect a sec­ond speak­er cab­i­net and lis­ten to records in stereo for the first time in Braun his­to­ry.

The speak­er cab­i­net L1 was built in 1957 for the first time, and was a per­fect com­bi­na­tion with the Braun Ate­lier 1 Radio. But the L1 Spe­qk­er cab­i­net is also a per­fect fit to the SK series. Tech­ni­cal­ly they were not high­ly sophis­ti­cat­ed, a woofer and a high-fre­quen­cy loud­speak­er is built-in. Lat­er the mod­els L11 and L12 came with two high-fre­quen­cy speak­ers.

phono­su­per sk 55

The SK55 was released in 1963 and was the lat­est mod­el of the SK series. Some evi­dent improve­ments were the divid­ed ven­ti­la­tion slots, and the com­plet­ly new designed turntable with adjustable tone arm. This is a mono sys­tem again, here you can’t con­nect a sec­ond loud­speak­er device, as you can with the SK61.
