eBay Find: BANG & OLUFSEN BEOMASTER 900-K

beomaster900-closeWhile quite out of my price range, this is a beautiful piece of radio art nevertheless. (I recommend viewing the close-ups on the listing to really see it.) The receiver/amplifier has Broadcast, Long Wave, Short Wave plus FM, and the ability to reproduce beautiful stereo for its time, according to user reports.These were produced during the mid-sixties until 1970. I miss the artwork involved in many older radios as compared to today’s utilitarian radios. We may have better components and features, but we do not have the beauty or style in many cases.

I’ll be watching with interest to see how this auction ends!

    Really expensive for a Beeomaster 900K.
    They usually go for 100 US$ over here, minus the postage.

    Then again, I am from the country of B&O…

      Interesting! As we see here in the States with”classic” radios, often the price goes well beyond true value, such as the Collins radio which ended up selling for $5500 recently!

    you could somewhat easily reproduce that glass with a laser etched plexy panel … LED bar graph for the S meter.
