BRAUN Design Collection | app. 1000 pcs for Sale

The BRAUN design collection consists of approx. 1000 different pieces, mainly from the years between 1955 and 1985. It is probably one of the most complete private BRAUN design collections of this period.

The collection shows how Dieter Rams und the BRAUN Design Department, starting from 1955, managed to give technology a clear shape (form follows function), wrapping it in modern materials. The domestic appliances in particular reveal the impact of “BRAUN Design” on other designers and their product engineering. The collection is either suited for a private collector or a design or technical museum. The innovative aspect becomes evident especially by comparing it with the technical products of other manufacturers of the same time period. Dieter Rams can be regarded as one of the best and most influential designers of the 20th century.

About the BRAUN Design Collection

The collection was created between 1979 and 1981 during my studies of architecture. In 1991 it was joined with a second collection in order to choose the best among 200 double items. Since 2010 the collection has been further extended. Most of the pieces are in a good or very good state even though the function of the devices has not been tested as most of them have been standing idle for more than 30 years.

Braun Collection Catalog shows only part of the collection as it was issued about 20 years ago. However, the list of items and the pictures of the storage facilities are up to date. The collection is completed by numerous brochures, manuals, posters, books, spare parts and so on. There are also some devices from the years before 1955, just to show that at that time they did not differ a lot from the products of other manufacturers.

Minimum asking price for the complete collection 350.000,– Euro

Muzak 6V6 Tube Amplifier, Model 903A from the 1950’s. All the tubes are working and included.
Tubes: 1) 6V6GT | 1) 5Y3GT | 1) 6SL7GT –

Detail

The front panel knob controls the Volume and Power On/Off and a power light that doesn’t work so the bulb needs replacing. The back panel has a 6 screw terminal strip for output with user selectable voltages plus a 4 Ohm speaker terminal, and a 3 screw terminal strip for input. There are also 2 adjustments on top of the amp, one for Gain the other for Treble/On/Off.

Detail

We tested the input with a microphone using a 4 Ohm speaker for output and everything works nicely. All the tubes light up and all capacitors stayed nice and cool during our testing. The volume knob turns freely as it should with a little static in one spot during adjustment. This amp won’t blow out the windows and is best suited for small arenas, pubs, recording studios and practice.

Detail

The chassis and cage are in very nice condition with only minor age related scuffs as you can see in the pictures. A copy of the original schematic is also included on the inside of the bottom panel. It looks like it has all the original components to me except for the grounded power cord that was added at some point for safety. It measures approximately 8 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ x 6″ and weighs about 13 lbs. unpacked. Buy it now on eBay!

All tube amplifiers are brought up to full power slowly with a variac to avoid damage and to reform the capacitors. Although I test them to the best of my ability, I am not an expert! When purchasing vintage items you should expect that some may need work and remember that the warranty ran out on our items decades ago! By bidding on my auctions YOU AGREE THAT… YOU ARE BUYING THIS ITEM AS IS AS SHOWN FOR PARTS AND RESTORATION with NO GUARANTEES EXPRESSED, GIVEN OR IMPLIED AND NO RETURNS ACCEPTED FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
