Many thank to my buddy, David Korchin (K2WNW), who sent the following eBay link:

While I love Dieter Rams’ designs, and no doubt this is a very rare piece in “almost perfect shape,” it is certainly well-beyond my budget at $11,000 US plus $600 shipping.

Admittedly, though, if I were building a modern house and wanted a feature piece of functional artwork, the Braun Wall Unit may very well fit the bill. Most of Rams’ designs certainly seem to hold or increase in value over time.

For now, I’ll just admire this design from a distance. Curious if it’ll fetch its BuyItNow price. Thanks again for sharing this one, David!

    I forgot. Some of the tape desks were made by Uher.

    The only problem with electronics from this era. One issue I have come across very often is certain capacitors need to be replaced. On all my Brauns I had these replaced with more modern capacitors.

    Depending on the condition the price is fair. I have a number Dieter Rams designed audio products from Braun.

    It should be noted that the electronics of Braun turntables and tape decks were made by Philips. Speakers were made by Grundig.
