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.
