Nordmende, originally from North Germany, was historically a renowned major consumer electronics brand known for top quality televisions and domestic appliances. A cooperation between renowned designer Raymond Loewy and Nordmende led to the Nordmende Specta Futura radio in 1968, and it is undoubtedly one of the most iconic radios Nordmende ever made.

Original price

The radio came in 9 different stereo and mono models, and one of the more expensive models had a price tag of Fl. 750 in 1971 in the Netherlands. This is equivalent to around € 1650 in 2021. Quite an expensive radio, but let's be honest, it's a true design classic, even in the 1960s and 1970s.

Finding a mono Spectra Futura is difficult, but finding the double speakers (the stereo) has become very hard. I own a stereo version of this radio (with the aluminium front panels) and I've attached my iPod to it. I got it for free from a teacher, lucky me. The sound quality is excellent!
