Braun SK5

Published: May 20, 2021

An iconic design, the SK5 is identical to the SK4 (which was released in 1956), but the radio part has been extended for LW reception (LongWave). The PC3 SV turntable has been equipped with a stereo crystal pickup system and thus prepared for stereo playback (SV ). To listen to stereo records, however, the SK5 must be retrofitted, so it remains a mono system. It has four speeds: 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm. The design is by Hans Gugelot in close cooperation with Dieter Rams. In the design, you can see clearly that functional aesthetics and user-friendliness are perfectly combined.
